Windows 10 is draining my Laptop Battery after Shutdown

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

I have never seen this happening with Win7, but my laptop drains at like 7%/day after shutdown and it runs Win10.

 

Any idea as to why this might be happening??

Are you sure it actually shutdown ? Did you try long pressing the power button after you "think" it shut down ?

Win10 doesn't shut down completely (unless you disable Hibernation)

Hold down Shift as you choose Shut Down from the power menu. That forces Windows10 to shut down completely, ignoring the hibernation file. The next startup will be a cold startup,

Try this and see if battery is still drained. If so and you want to, then disable Hibernation....or keep Hibernation and recharge battery more often. You may also have a weak or failing battery that needs replaced.

You can disable hibernation and save a couple gigs by doing so, by entering the following into a command prompt run as admin:

 

powercfg.exe /h off

That's one option, you'll lose fast startup though. If you want to keep that use this command instead.

powercfg /h /type reduced

How old is this battery? What is the release date?

if your battery is not that old or heavily used

 

might be worth checking out if you have a fast startup option enabled...

 

got to: power options

press: choose what the power button does

press: change settings that are currently unavailable

 

there should be some check boxes depending on your system with sleep, lock and fast startup (or something like that)

 

if you got fast startup and its checked, try uncheck it... (this should turn off your computer for good)

 

*just a visual reference, but remember, you want the opposite

 

 

good luck

I have the laptop since ~2 months now.

 

Mine is a LG Gram 15" 2018 model, tried all the above mentioned methods, but the battery drain is ~8%/day after a proper shutdown.

 

Is this normal for laptops running on Win10?
