Solved!

HP Pavilion x2 Detachable PC - Battery Drains when in Sleep Mode Work-Around

HP Recommended
HP Pavilion x2 Detachable PC
Microsoft Windows 10 (32-bit)

After much searching, trial, error and re-trial...below is my suggested solution for those who like me were fed up of having the X2 die on them while sleeping!

 

Option 1 - Enable Hibernation

 

This will basically disable Windows 10 "connected standby" function whereby the tablet is supposed to go into a deep "resilence" sleep while somehow still being able to keep checking e-mails and stuff in the background. The problem is that because many drivers (such as the Intel SST Audio Device (WDM) do not seem to have been implemented well for the x2 on windows 10, then the tablet continues to drain power.

 

The solution is to go back to using good old "Hibernate" function. It will take a few seconds longer for the x2 to resume back into normal mode and cost about 700mb in HD space which is used by the hyberfil to temporarily store some of the data from RAM memory. The x2 will generally enter hybernation 5-10 mins after sleep, but you can set this below.

 

To enable hibernation

 

Go to Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Power Options\Edit Plan Settings  

Open "Change Advanced Power Settings

Expand the  "Sleep" sub-heading and under "on battery" select Hibernate. 

 

If you get stuck - more detailed instructions can be found here: http://www.tenforums.com/tutorials/2859-hibernate-enable-disable-windows-10-a.html

 

 

Option 2 - Persevere with  "Connected Standby" Sleep

 

Unfortunatly in my experience, this way lies only frustration and dissapointment, but you can try and identify what is stopping your x2 from entering sleep and disabling / upgrading drivers to see if this helps. To help you on this quest you have the following commands which need to be run as administrator.

 

 

Press Windows key + X and choose to open command window (as administrator)

Paste in the below and hit enter to run

powercfg /batteryreport
powercfg -energy
powercfg.exe SleepStudy

 Open c:/Windows/System32 and look for the files

 sleepstudy-report.html

energy-report.html

battery-report.html

 Hope this helps!
