Hello guys, I'm new on this forum and i hope I'll get the proper help for my problems. In May 2015 i bought a brand new Lenovo Y70 Touch laptop, first i had these problems: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KSy1iJ2AcrU , that problem with the lines was on windows 8.1 and also on windows 10, when i upgraded on it. I still have windows 10 installed. But that problem didn't bother me so much, so i waited for like 3 months and then decided to take it to the lenovo official service support, after one month i got it back, with a brand new motherboard. They fixed the problem, the screen is now fine. When i got the laptop back i checked it and i noticed that my battery is somehow draining ultra fast. When it's fully chargerd (100&) goes to 90% in like 10 minutes, even if i dont have any programs turned on or sth going on in a background. Charging the battery from 0-100% takes a lot longer, than the battery unplugged. So i think to myself, it's probably just not the right drivers installed for the power management. I went to your lenovo support site, and i downloaded drivers and softwares for windows 10 64bit version, they were 3 version on your site and they still are the same drivers. I installed Energy Manager and Flight Mode Driver for Windows 10 (64-bit), Lenovo battery Gauge for windows 10 (64-bit) and Lenovo energy management driver for windows 10 (32-bit, 64-bit). I can extract and install normally drivers for battery gauge and energy manager and flight mode d... Read more

I got a Lenovo 320S a few days ago and started it up plugged in. Unfortunately at 100% it says it only has like 2 hours and 15 minutes remaining. It goes through the first 20% pretty quickly but then it slows down and goes up to 4 hours or so. I just left it there for a few minutes or so at 33% and it went down to 5%. Is the battery still stuck in Ship Mode? It's supposed to last for 7 hours. I don't think I can remove the battery and I have already tried an apparent solution where you press the power button for 90 seconds with the PC turned off and then you plug it in again. That does not solve the problem. I'll need to be carrying this PC around so it's pretty urgent.

I thought this issue was corrected with the dev preview updates, but it seems that it got worse in my Lumia 520.
Battery lasts up to 26hrs if I'm lucky, when on WP 8 it was up to 50 -52 hrs.
Common activites:
Wifi connected all day.
Opening Facebook, Twitter, Messenger very often.
Reading articles in WPCentral App.
Web browsing.
Open MixRadio like once a day for 15 - 20 minutes.
Watch MetroTube videos at 360p

Answer:WP 8.1 drains battery soo fast...

I consider 26 hour battery life excellent on a smartphone.
I've never expected to get more than 18 hours on a single charge since I've been using smartphones. I always charge my devices every night overnight when I go to sleep. One cannot overcharge Lithium ion batteries, and Lithium ion batteries do best when topped off regularly and not allowed to drain too low repeatedly.

Hello All, I have been having some trouble with my battery on my new laptop (which I got less than 6 months ago). It is an HP Envy 15t touchscreen, and the battery doesn't last for more than about 2 hours. I've tried some basic fixes, like decreasing brightness, but that hasn't really helped. I've also noticed that the fan runs pretty loudly for long periods of time (I just timed it, for example, and it was making loud noises for 15-20 minutes straight). Finally, recently the laptop will freeze for a couple of minutes (it will usually freeze when the fan starts running). Like I said, this is a relatively new laptop, and I don't use it all that much (maybe a couple hours of browsing a day, and a few hours of streaming over the course of a week) so I'm not sure why its having this problem. When I first got the laptop, I was getting about 6 hours without charge. Now, for example, it dropped from 100% to 84% in about a 20 minute span. Any help on the matter would be appreciated. Thanks.

Answer:Battery drains fast on new laptop

Measure, measure, measure. If the fan is speeding-up, it's because the motherboard has detected "excessive" temperatures, and has increased the fan-speed to try to cool the computer. What causes those temperatures?  Basically, the CPU is working "hard", and generating extra heat. Use the Windows "Task Manager" and/or "Process Monitor" to see which tasks are consuming the CPU.

I have a brand new Satellite Pro C50 -A-1HR laptop. (Had it one week only) with Windows 8.1 installed. The battery loses at least 30% charge overnight when completely closed down and seems to drain pretty fast when I'm using it too. Admittedly I've used it a lot, as trying to get to grips with 8.1 ( I only had Vista before, steep learning curve). Can anyone tell me if this battery behaviour is usual please?

I have to plug in the mains cable every time I use it, concerned that if I don't use laptop for a week or more, battery would be dead!

Can anyone help please? Thanks

Answer:Battery drains fast on Satellite Pro C50 -A-1HR

I also get a message that says I need to replace my battery. What should I do to fix these problems? I have an acer aspire 5335

Answer:After Win 7 upgrade Battery drains FAST and overheats

First thing is to check your poswer settings and be sure that when you are on batteries that it is using the battery power sceme. And second, that that sceme has reduced clock and brightness settings, conservative disk settings etc like it should. (You should visibly notice that when you plug in and unplug the power supply that the screen brightens and dims at minimum...)

Answer:y480 Battery Drains Incredibly Fast

Hi
 
Welcome to the community.
 
As per your concern battery drains quickly and CPU Fan blows hot air. So to recover this issue you need to perform the Gauge reset first, to do so:
1. Open Lenovo Energy Management
2. Under Battery Health, Click on Start for Battery Gauge Reset.
3. That should refresh the gauge and let the system finish through the cycle.
4. It will take more time to complete, please do not close the system till the Gauge reset completed.
 
And then for the CPU FAN purpose you need to update the Bios of your system from the below mentioned web link.
 
http://support.lenovo.com/en_US/research/hints-or-tips/detail.page?&DocID=HT073632
 
After this, please restart the system and check if the issue resolved.
 
Regards,
Sameer

My battery drains from 100% to zero in about a week when powered off. A tech, in a chat session, said this was normal, and that HP batteries are expected to drain from 100% to zero in 5 or 6 days when powered off. That can't be right. A lithium-ion battery should lose about 10% charge per MONTH (http://www.batteryeducation.com/2012/10/battery-self-discharge-rates.html). But according to the tech it loses 15 to 20% charge PER DAY. What is HP's expected self-discharge rate for a laptop battery when the laptop is powered off? The "battery test" in the HP diagnostics said my battery was healthy. But I don't think it is. I want to know at what rate a fully charged battery should lose its charge when the machine is powered off so I can tell if my battery is defective. Thanks!

Thanks Welcome to Windows Central.
The battery life indicated in the Battery Saver app is just an estimate designed to give the user just an idea on how the apps that are currently allowed to run in the background affect battery life. These are not exact values. What really matters is how long the phone lasts with actual use.
How long does your phone last before you need to recharge it (based on actual time, not the estimates of Battery Saver)?

Hi, I have a new laptop with a model Asus i7 KV55 with windows 8 OS...
It works all great but when I connect to my Wifi-stick,
It drains the battery of the Wifi-stick very quickly and will eventually turn off.
My Wifi stick only lasts 10-15 mins when my new laptop is connected to it.
My wifi stick is connected to my laptop in my USB 2.0.
I tried connecting it in the USB 3.0 but I think the cable of my wifi only supports 2.0 so I get same results I think maybe even worse.
I turned my wireless connection connection as "metered mode" and all it does is last a little bit.
Which sucks is that my Wifi-stick can connect to my old laptop (Acer travelmate 2420) for a whole day without its battery dying.

Any tips where maybe I can lower my wireless network adapter's power consumption or anything?

Answer:Laptop drains my Wifi-stick's battery fast...

What kind of device are you referring to when you say 'Wifi stick'? To my knowledge there are no battery-powered ones, as that would silly since you're always connecting it to a powered device over a powered bus.

I am totally disappointed in Lenovo's customer support. My lenovo 710s was bought less than 1 year ago (as of 10/6/2017, when I sent it in for repairs) and had 2 years warranty (1+1 year of extended warranty). I sent my laptop for repair due to a white spot issue on the monitor, affecting viewing of webpages and videos. However, the laptop was returned after 3 weeks without any fixes/repairs, as Lenovo claimed that it was a cosmetic issue. I wrote a message on their customer care website on 3/7/2017. However, they ignored me and there was no reply to date.  I thought Lenovo is a reliable and popular brand. However, it turned out to be a horrible decision, much to my dismay!

Hi there, had my E450 for a year and a half. Win 10 crashed a few weeks ago and had to wipe and reinstall windows (without lenovo software). It seems since, but I don't think right away after reinstalling windows... my battery seems to last only 90mins/2hours or so and the fan seems to run all the time. It was doing at least 5 hours on a full charge before. Seems to operate fine other than the fan/battery. I have adjusted the windows power settings (haven't reinstalled the lenovo power manager) and have the fan on passive mode when unplugged and it still seems to keep running.  I'm only running chrome and minimal background programs, same as I did prior to reinstalling windows. in task manager it seems CPU stays around 50-60% and memory at 60-70%, with chrome using most of it. Also since the reinstall my mute button still works but light either is stuck on or sometimes off after rebooting. Might just try to reinstall windows 10 again... but any advice is much appreciated!

Hello!  I just  purchased my LENOVO ideapad 310, a month ago. During my observation on its battery since I got it, its discharging time takes atmost 1 hour and 45 mins while its charging time takes atmost 4 hours. Given the fact that I am not using any application or software, it's not even connected to internet, just leaving it open, it drains so easy. I know its battery is below average but given the fact that its charging time consumes more compare to discharging, i am beginning to wonder if its still normal.  Your answer will be deeply appreciated thank you!

Just received my new notebook and am extremely happy with it, execept for the battery indicator. The effective charge reamining, fluctuates by a wide margin, suddenly jumping from 4 hours remaining - to 3 hours - to 6 hours in a matter of minutes! The PC was left in idle state with no processing happening whatsoever. at 100% charge it shows 5 hours 6 mts of remaining time, as the charge drops to 97% after 5 mins of idle, the remaining time changes to 2 hrs 34 mins and at 94% charge after another 5 mins, it shows 7 hr 20 mins of remianing time! I called Lenovo service and after one hour of trying this and and that, they offered to replace the PC with a comment that battery takes 1 week to settle down and stabilise! I find that a bit out of the ordinary. My config is 710S, i5, 8GB RAM, 256GB SSD, Windows 10, with Lenovo optimiser loaded. (The battery gauge reset, suggested by service is missing in this version - the service staff themselves could not find it).  Is anyone else having similar issues?

Hi  I am thinking of purchasing a 13" Lenovo ideapad 710s ($1199 model) over a MacBook air. I have been using a macbook air for several years and recently thought of getting a new laptop. Lenovo's 710s seems to be quite good on paper (except the battery life), but I couldnt find any reviews online which can tell me if the laptop is as good as Lenovo projects it to be. If anyone has bought/used Lenovo 710s, can  you guys chime in and let me know if this laptop came on par with your expectations (esp. the battery life)? Thanks

Answer:Lenovo Ideapad 710s question

hi. Here I leave you computer manual so you can compare, the battery is a consumable device that usually lasts depending on the use that will give the team being new can last an average of 3 hours, you should know that each load you do it is that you take away useful life. https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/Z-Base-de-conocimientos/Optimizando-el-tiempo-de-duraci%C3%B3n-de-la-ba... Manual service:https://download.lenovo.com/consumer/mobiles_pub/ideapad_710S-13ISK_hmm_201603.pdf Regards.

Dear Lenovo Community, I've just bought my Lenovo Ideapad 710S two days ago. Bought the highest-end configuration with 16GB RAM + 512GB PCIE SSD. I got to say I'm absolutely in love with the form factor and its performance. I decided upon this laptop mainly because of its portability and the combination of 16GB RAM + 512GB SSD at less than $2k. DesignAt 1.1kg, it is really light - I can hold in up effortlessly with one arm. At home, I use a Dell monitor (U2715H) which is almost borderless; looking at 710S's edge, it is equally slim and is key to making it look stylish. The matte screen display has very crisp, clear text and is very comfortable to look at. PerformancePerformance wise, there is no complain. It lives up to what it's spec-ed on paper. Every application and operation (e.g. startup, shutdown, boot from sleep) loads at breakneck speeds thanks to its PCIE SSD. I've yet to try running more intensive software e.g. the Adobe suite but at this rate, it looks promising thus far. AccuType KeyboardAt first, I thought the flat keys have really little travel to bottom-out but as I spend more time typing on it, I gradually grew to like the keyboard. It's well spaced-out, typing on it can be very accurate. Key travel is reasonable for faster typists. Only thing is the placement of backspace, enter and shift button at the right side needs some extra time to get used to it as I find they placed more to the right than it is on comm... Read more

Hi, since I got my Ideapad 710s everything has been running smoothly, however, in the last month or so whenever I load something the mouse cursor disapears. If I go into settings and set the mouse pointer again it will appear as normal when something is loading, but within five minutes will go back to disappearing.  Another problem that started slighlty before that was that the night light (blue light filter) setting refused to turn off between 9pm and 6am, even when it said it was turned off. Now it is turned off, but won't turn on.  In general there has been lots of little settings malfunctions just like this, which while not laptop breaking, are increasingly annoying.  Any suggestions?

Hi there, Frevans                       -
 
Thank you for writing in to the Lenovo Forum - happy to have you here today.
 
Just to verify, did you encounter this issue the first time you setup the PC or you just encountered this lately?
 
If it's just lately, can you try one of the following?
 
Disable "hide pointer while typing" under Control Panel (large icon view) > Mouse > Pointer Options Tab and enable "Show location of pointer when i press CTRL key"
  - Link to picture
 
Uninstall the Touchpad Driver (ELAN or Synaptics) under Control Panel > Programs and reboot. Upon logging back in, Windows will use a generic touchpad driver. Try to observe the mouse pointer behavior and observe (you can always re-install the touchpad driver by navigating to D:\Drivers\Touchpad or by downloading the driver from the lenovo website).
 
Boot in Safe Mode with Networkingand observe the mouse pointer behavior. If all goes well, perform a clean boot and observe. If same problem, perform a System Restorein safe mode to undo any possible updates that was installed on the system (ensure that you make a backup copy of your files).

The battery drains rapidly even when in Sleep mode.  I am seeing battery life of only about 2 hours (very disappointing) of this IdeaPad that I purchased in May.  Even worse is that putting the laptop to sleep does not conserve what charge remains on the battery.  I read another post from 2013 that said to disable fast boot mode in the power options, but I cannot find that setting to change.  Does anyone have suggestions - to increase battery life AND to keep the battery from draining while in Sleep mode? Running W8.1 with balanced power settings. Thanks.

Hi Rohitupadhaya,
 
Welcome to Lenovo forums
 
As I understood that you are facing the issue with the battery drains too quickly in your Lenovo G505s laptop.
 
This issue might be due to the application with high end graphics. Try to close the all the unwanted application, try to reinstall the Microsoft ACPI.
 
Also try to check with other battery if available, also try to reset the battery gauge by go to start search and type power manger, select battery tab under battery tab select battery maintenance.
 
Under battery maintenance select perform reset under battery gauge reset option.

Hi Kingchechan,

As far as I know only the Windows update will be accessing to the server, or might be any other 3rd party cloud related application, which might be accessing to the cloud server.
 
Did you check disabling USB always on in BIOS & Wake On Lan from Windows AND BIOS
 
Check running command powercfg /devicequery wake_armed to see if any device is programmed to power on the laptop might be this is consuming battery power.

Hi, I have a Lenovo Yoga 900 (Intel Core i7-6560U 3.2 GHz, 8 GB RAM, 256 GB SSD, Windows 10) and have been experiencing the following issue since I purchased it: I put the laptop in sleep mode and into my laptop bag. The laptop will wake up by itself later despite the lid is closed. It then stays on as it's inside the laptop bag it gets very hot and drains the battery. Since this has happened closer to 10 times already I'm worried if the battery life is already damaged due to heating. Normally when I close the lid the laptop goes onto sleep mode.  I have already taken many measures to try and stop it from waking up from this article (http://www.makeuseof.com/tag/stop-windows-computer-randomly-waking/). I have set the power setting so that it should always go on sleep mode when the lid is closed. I don't understand how it goes on even when the lid is closed.  What could be the problem? Thanks in advance!

I have my lenovo x230 laptop set to sleep when I close the lid. When I close the lid the "sleep" icon on the back of the screen lights up. But the batter will not last through the night on sleep mode. Within five hours or so, the battery is completely drained and I have to plug in and boot up the system. I've never seen such poor batter performance during sleep mode on any other laptop I've ever owned.  Another thread in this forum blames the USB port that allows you to charge mobile phones/etc. during low-power states and recommends disabling the "always power on" option fo this USB port in the Bios settings. I've done so, be it doesn't seem to have helped. At least my laptop still will not make it through the night in sleep mode.  At this point, it seems my ownly option is to use sleep mode only when the laptop is plugged in and hibernation mode when on batter power, which is disappointing. I've never had to worry about this in the past with other laptops.  Perhaps/probably related is the fact that the lenovo ThinkVantage Power Manager (v. 7.16) hangs at the splash screen when I try to open it, so I've been trying to manage the power through the windows control panel power settings.

Hello, I've had my IdeaPad for not even one week yet I observed in the battery section of the Lenovo settings app that the full charge capacity has dropped from 36,... Wh to 35,02 Wh which is already below the design capacity of 35,3 Wh. I've even been using conservation mode all the time and always left it plugged in so it's basically been at a stable 55-60% all the time, except for one 100% charge and back to 60 again. Is the battery really losing its capacity this extremely fast or is it the Lenovo software just artificially lowering the full charge capacity? It seems extremely suspicious to me that the battery loses capacity at 1 Wh per week....Thanks

About a month ago my battery would drop from 20% to 6% saying I needed to plug it in to recharge. I've done a few battery recalibrations and I'd get full use out of my battery but it only lasts for 2 or 3 charges. I just used a program named Battery Eater that drained my battery and displayed graphically what it looks like, I've attached it below. Can someone provide a solution other than me having to recalibrate my battery every time I want to get full use of my battery?  

Answer:Ideapad 560 Sanyo Battery Discharging too fast

I'm having issues seeing your graphic below, but have you tried deep-discharging it a more classical way?
 
There are DOS tools to actually do a battery reset from Lenovo, though the disclaimer states it cannot be used on Ideapads (Strange that usage is "prohibited"): http://support.lenovo.com/en_US/detail.page?LegacyDocID=MIGR-56222
 
My recommendation is boot from a live CD to an environment that has no power management when you're down to 20% or so. Let the battery trickle away until the system hard shuts off. Then charge the machine while powered off until your system reaches 100% charge.

Answer:Ideapad S510p touch - Battery discharging too fast

hi Bhan168,
 
Welcome to the Lenovo Forums.
 
To check the battery, can you try and run following:
1. Download and install BatteryCare and post the detailed info on the battery.
   - Sample info
 
2. Open an elevated Command Prompt (press the Windows key? +X and choose Command Prompt (Admin))
   - on the command prompt box, type powercfg -energy
   - once It generates the energy-report.html file, move this to your desktop and double click it. It will help if you can post a screenshot of the report or upload it (eg. Dropbox) so we can check if there's an app or a driver running on the background that's eating up power and making the battery drain much faster.

Hello wonderful Lenovo user's and guru's! I have recieved a Lenovo Ideapad y550 from a pawn shop. I grabbed it because I knew this was a pretty good computer. I thought I could fix any problems it has and it would be just fine. =] So this laptop shuts down instantly if I unplug the power cord. Just dies, no time to do any saving or lights to blink. Just instant shutdown. Also when I try to power it on when its unplugged from the AC, it does nothing. Also shuts off in the middle of playing guild wars 2. No other games shut off on me. When I realized I had this problem, I ordered a new battery for my model of laptop. The new battery is doing the exact same thing as the other battery that was in it. It seems the computer has a fresh install of windows except with a .old folder in the C drive. So I am guessing someone did some sort of reformat or recover? the recovery was done through the Pawn Shop. It seems that it has windows 7 64 bit.  Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Despite the manufacturer's claim of 7 hours battery life on my Lenovo Ideapad 320S-14IKB - 81BN (S/N: MP1CHQTJ), I only get around 3-4 hours. This is with light usage, Reddit, a little bit of youtube etc. CPU usage was mostly around 0-5% the entire time. This was with the max CPU state in power settings reduced from 100% to 85%. However, I do have the screen at 100% brightness. As a different test, I tried doing (almost) nothing (apart from keeping the screen bright), and got 6 hours out of the battery. Is there a simple solution to increase this? It's only a 30 Wh battery (2 cell). Maybe in the future, a 60 Wh (4 cell?) one will come out for this model?
