    Hi,

    i have a strange issue with my SP.

    Whenever i don't use the SP i put it into Hibernate mode (not standby), While in Hibernate the SP should not eat up battery life.
    Unfortunately my SP eats up the battery while in Hibernate ( ~ 30 % in 8 hours).

    A complete reset of the SP did not help.

    Anyone else with this issue?

    I have the exact same problem since a couple of days ago...
    Plus my fans have been running like crazy with just Chrome running.
    Any help or suggestions would be appreciated.

    I cant say i have noticed the same thing. I usually shutdown my SP if i know i am not going to be using it for a while. I usually leave it in hibernate mode if im using it frequently.

    I think that is "by design". Don't waste any time trying to fix it.

    I think the 8.1 preview set battery life back a little and is a known issue. I know if you disable BT in 8.1 you actually lose battery life.

    i had an issue with the battery. After contacting the Support i received a replacement.

    Now everything is fine.

    Btw...

    Use the following command in the command line to see the battery utilization.


    powercfg -batteryreport


    You can find the report in your user Directory.

    Very cool report!
    Any other such hidden reports or such one can access via command line?
