Battery dies after 20 hours of non-use.

Well I have another Android Teblet with Jeally Bean..(Asus Padfone2) and I have installed the same Apps on both..

Also Facebook.....and the Asus Tablet only uses 7% in 24hrs being in standby. (synchronisation turned off on both)

 

I really hope we can find the root cause and solve it, because with a draining battery in standby of 80% in 24 hrs the Slate is ...sorry HP..USELESS as a tablet.

If I have to tunr it completely off...I can stay with my Ultrabook....this boots faster WIN8 than the Slate is booting from being completely OFF

 

Regards

Hello!

 

I have the same problem. At night, charge to 100%, i turn off wifi and screen, but the next day dawns with the battery drained to half.

I restored the device, and disabled all applications (those that allow) without success 😞

 

In my case I have v1.05.6_user version.

 

 

Sorry for my bad English

As a top contributor to the HP Consumer Support Forums, HP provides me access to the Slate 7 at no charge so I may better respond to the questions raised on the Forum.

 Ok, now try it with the Wifi off. The 58% remaining battery will not last more than 10 hours. :Wink:

Understood.  But, if turning Wi-Fi off makes the battery burn faster, and the user knows that, why would the user do that?

Because leaving wifi on also burns the battery, just not as bad as a cpu that never sleeps because wifi is off.  It's the lesser of two power drain problems.  If the cpu could sleep while wifi was off, we'd see much longer battery life overall.  A user will also be required to disable wifi during a commercial flight.

 

I'm confident HP can/will fix this along with the unuseably distorted bluetooth audio.  It's a first generation product, and at this price point, pretty darn good.  Honestly, if HP fixes these two issues, it's a *very* competitive device.

Has anyone tried this?

 

Go to Settings > Apps > Maps. Uninstall Updates. After updates are uninstalled, Disable Maps. (You cannot uninstall the built-in Google apps, but you can try this to stop them from updating and using battery while supposedly in idle.)

 

I'd forgotten, but this solved the battery issues I was having very early on with mine.

https://coderwall.com/p/lg-wmg (Note some of the comments, as well.)

 

These are operating system issues with Android. And you may be able to disable just the parts of the apps that are causing the most battery drain (e.g., location services) without resorting to such drastic measures as disabling the app entirely. But if you do want to disable (you can't uninstall) a built-in app, you should be able to do that - but may first have to uninstall updates before you'll see an option to disable. Force Stop won't work forever. Disable will.

@Holly_J I have disabled ALL applications, newly factory reset, and the problem persists with Wifi off.

This is like using a bazooka to kill a fly.

 

The only method I've found is, Wifi enabled and set automatic off in standby.

Settings > Wifi > Advanced > Use Wi-Fi in suspension  > Never

 

This screenshot shows the battery level after a night with Twitter, Facebook, Gmail and Flipboard installed. Synchronization Enabled and no blocked application.

Edit: This is only a TEMPORARY solution. I hope that HP send an update to fix this error. So this thread is not solved yet.
