    Hello,
    My Surface Pro 3's battery gets drained even while it's connected to power and charging. It wasn't like this before, I'm not sure but it looks like this started happening after I had upgraded to Windows10.
    Power supply is working normal, the device recharges successfully. But even if it's 100% charged and the power supply is connected, it uses some battery power and drains the battery if I use heavy apps like games.
    Can't we make it use the power supply only ? May it be related to some power management scheme or settings ?

    Check your system power draw using Kill A Watt. If the total power draw is about 35 W while gaming, the battery will get discharged.
