    What should i look for in my task manager to see whats eating up my battery power.
    The CPU of Memory column where it shows % is where to look to see which application is eating away at the battery life.

    Surface Book
    powercfg /batteryreport
    powercfg /sleepstudy
    powercfg /energy

    Run from an elevated CMD Prompt, copy reports to your Documents folder from C:\Windows\System32 open in IE and look through the reports to narrow down what is killing your battery.

    Known Culprits:

    • Google Chrome
    • Google Services (Drive, etc.)
    • Some Antivirus Suites
    • Some older 2.4GHz Mouse Dongles
    • Some older models of Bluetooth Mouse
    • Legacy Win32 Code that won't suspend for Connected Standby
