    What should be the logical battery drain for the Surface Pro 4 (i5) when it is in shutdown state?

    In the short-term, none. The device is turned off, so it isn't using any battery.

    Thanks, was thinking that their would be some minimal drain over time. But wanted to get a second opinion if I was thinking right.

    If I leave my SP4 off for more than a day I do see a little drain but not all that much.

    Only time i've seen mine drain a little is when stored for weeks to months.

    I just had a quick look online and the page i was reading stated that lithium-ion will disharge at roughly 5% a month.

    Apologies for resurrecting an old thread - I was wondering how much battery drain you would see when you leave your SP4 off for more than a day? More than 1 or 2%?
