    Hello, guys.

    I have a Surface Pro 3 dor almost one year now and since I updated from Windows 8.1 to Windows 10 Final Release, The Surface seems to be using the battery a lot even on sleep mode.

    If I leave it at 100%, put it on sleep mode and open it 7 hours later, the battery would be at 30-40%.

    Can someone help me, please?
    Thank you!

    I had a similar issue, I had 40% plus power drain overnight. The sleepstudy report highlighted the micro SD card as the offender. Removing the card stopped the problem.

    If you run powercfg with the /sleepstudy option in an Admin command prompt there's loads of information as to what the PC is doing while in connected standby. The report is written to \windows\system32\sleepstudy.

    Yeah I know, but how do you know what is the offender based on that study? It doesnt say in mine.

    I think I found a fix.
    In task scheduler, library - microsoft - windows - updateorchestrator - reboot. Right click - Properties - conditions, uncheck wake up system to perform this task.

    I had 2% battery drain overnight. Just as in windows 8.1.

    Had horrible battery drain and the sleep study seems to point to the SD card. Took it out and now system is reporting much better battery life.

    Thank you so much for this! I did this yesterday and today was the first day since July 29th that I didn't have a dead battery in the morning.

    Same problem here. I notice a setting in the power & sleep, "when on battery stay connected to WiFi". Let's see if that changes anything.
