    Hi there,


    is anyone else having the problem that the surface pro ( 128gb, 4gb ram ) with windows 10
    has a strong battery drain in standby?

    The display is black but still it drains about 10% in 1 hour.

    Also did a full reset and only installed office and firefox, but still it drains the battery.



    Regards

    Mario

    Welcome to the forum Mario

    Since this has been discussed by users with other Surface models and there have been several previous discussions of battery drain after the upgrade this is getting move to the Windows 10 section. Most of those battery use issues have been solved.

    Run from an elevated CMD Prompt

    powercfg -sleepstudy

    It will create a HTML file in System32 called Sleepstudy.html, copy this file to your desktop and open and look at what is draining the battery.

    Sorry - I just noticed you are on a Gen 1 Pro, same report but use the switch "-energy"

    It gives me some errors but only 1 error is the reason that it doesnt go into standby.

    The driver HDAUDIO/FUNC01.......
    High Definition Audio Device

    I would uninstall your Audio Driver and allow it to reinstall it...

    Here is my energy report. Maybe the drivers cause the battery drain and the SP is not sleep, just the screen turns off
