    Battery Drain after Shutdown

    I will try this firmware update as soon as I go home. However, I'm not holding my breath!

    Battery Drain after Shutdown

    If you are still under warranty, try your best to get it replaced with a new one. With SP4, this issue was never fixed and I won't be surprised if they can't fix this issue with SP6. Good luck!

    battery drain 10 % per day in full shutdown

    Thanks for update. I'm glad it finally worked out for you. Unfortunately for those of us out of warranty, we are still suffering from this weird issue.

    Battery Drain after Shutdown

    Welcome to the party. Just joking. My i5 128GB SP4 is also experiencing battery drain after full shutdown. Mine is about 4-5% per 24 hour period. I've tried pretty much everything under the sun including full reset. At this point, I see no hope.

    Lose network connections when locked.

    I have a very similar setup. I do occasionally lose connection to my monitors but that's rare. Lately though, I do lose network connection if my SP4 is locked for more than a few minutes. It wasn't like this before, but seems to have started recently.

    Log in issue after the latest update

    I have Windows Hello facial recognition set up. After the latest update (1809), when I boot up my SP4, I get a message saying "Something went wrong. Please sign in with you PIN". At that point, I can type in my PIN to log in or I can click on the sign in options and choose facial recognition...

    Intel Management Engine FW 0.0.0.0

    I think you can manually update the driver? Download the file then manually update it. Download Intel® Management Engine Driver (5M) for Windows 7*, 8.1*, and Windows® 10 for Intel® NUC Kit NUC5i5MYHE

    Battery Drain after Shutdown

    That's how I have it except mine is a tile instead of a shortcut. :)

    Battery Drain after Shutdown

    Do you have fast startup disabled on your Surface Book? I remember vaguely that I had to disable that AND use the full shutdown command to minimize the battery drain while being shutdown. I kind of doubt you have the fast startup disabled and if so I'm really puzzled on what is causing this...

    Battery Drain after Shutdown

    So I did another test by shutting down my SP4 at 84%. Today I powered it up after about 20 hrs and it had 81%. So mine is not as bad ad jeffrodrig's machine but certainly not ideal as it really shouldn't lose 4-5% battery every 24 hours after a full shutdown and nothing is using energy. There...

    Battery Drain after Shutdown

    I did another test by shutting off at 90% battery. Turning it back on after 26 hours the battery was at 86%. So it lost 4% over 26 hours and I guess that is acceptable. I wish it lost less but better than losing 5% over 6 hours like jeffrodrig's battery.

    Battery Drain after Shutdown

    The UEFI firmware version I have is: BIOS Version/Date Microsoft Corporation 108.2318.769, 8/14/2018 I do want to stress that I am using the "Full" shutdown command as shown above so I'm not entirely sure if that is preserving my battery life after the shutdown or the new firmware. In any...

    Battery Drain after Shutdown

    Update: I've done all the latest update and used a shortcut to "C:\Windows\System32\shutdown.exe /s /f /t 0" to shutdown and after 24 hours the battery was still 100%. I did notice the shutdown and startup takes a little longer but not enough to bother me. So I'm happy with the result.

    Battery Drain after Shutdown

    I saw many old threads on this issue and was hoping it's been resolved. I guess I was wrong!
