    Surface Pro 6 restarts with 75% battery level

    This is a well known issue which the Surface Laptop 2 is also known to suffer from. A firmware update sent out to members of the Windows Insider Program recently seems to fix the problem. Presumably it's only a matter of time before it is released to everyone.

    Surface Pro 6 restarts with 75% battery level

    Were you experiencing power loss during sleep/standby or when your device was completely powered off? People see to be getting these two issues confused. The latter has nothing to do with connected standby because whether that feature is active or not the device can't be connected to anything...

    Surface Pro 6 restarts with 75% battery level

    I thought of that as well. It appears to take about the expected time to charge to 100%. I still think it's likely that the software is not accurately detecting the charge. I don't see how it's physically possible for the battery to lose 25% of its charge while shutdown for even just 10 minutes...

    Surface Pro 6 restarts with 75% battery level

    This seems to be an increasingly common problem. Here's everything I know about it so far: - It seems to mainly affect Surface Pro 6 and Surface Laptop 2 units, ever since an August firmware update. - The problem is almost certainly software/firmware based. I don't believe there's anything...

    Battery Drain after Shutdown

    The original issue seems to have gotten a bit confused over the course of this thread. It’s not about power loss during sleep/standby mode, it’s apparent power loss when the device is fully shut down.

    Battery drain overnight while shutdown

    Okay, new development (if anyone is even following this). Check this out, supposedly I lost over 20% while my PC was shut down for less than 20 minutes... That's not possible! Not for a perfectly healthy battery that functions as expected for several hours when the PC is actually in use. So it...

    Battery drain overnight while shutdown

    Some research suggested that the problem might be with Window's "Fast Startup" feature. I tried deactivating this feature, but still lost 8% overnight. This is unacceptable for a supposedly premium device.

    Battery Drain after Shutdown

    I'm have a similar problem with my Surface Laptop 2 lately. About 25% lost overnight while shutdown. What the heck is going on and what am I supposed to do about it?

    Battery drain overnight while shutdown

    Just lost 12% while my computer was off for a few hours. Something is definitely wrong. What could possibly be draining power like this while it is completely turned off?

    Battery drain overnight while shutdown

    Lately, after I shutdown (full shutdown, not sleep or hibernate) my fully charged Surface Laptop 2 at night, I turn it on in the morning and find that the battery has lost around 25% power overnight! What's going on and how can I fix this? The laptop is only about 6 months old and the battery...

    Just got October Update?

    I'm curious why I just got the October update on my Surface Laptop 2 (purchased in February). Shouldn't it have shipped with this update? Isn't a May update due out this month? How can I ensure that my PC gets updates in a timely manner?

    Replacing battery in Surface Pro 2017?

    But if they don't do repairs, are the refurbished units just straight up returned products? I mean, when Apple does refurbs, I know that they actually replace a lot of the parts such as batteries and I think even the back panels on iPads, so many of the parts are actually new. It also says on...

    Replacing battery in Surface Pro 2017?

    Microsoft doesn't do repairs on Surface products? Then why did I just pay for 2 years of coverage, including part failure and accidents?

    Just got the Surface Laptop2

    Alcantara wear is something that I considered very seriously while researching this laptop. As I mentioned, it's my first Surface product, so I don't even have experience with Surface Typecovers to use as a reference. It so happens that the way I happen to hold my hands when I type is such...

    Just got the Surface Laptop2

    I've found the battery life to be very good. It's hard to give exact numbers at this point but even though I primarily use my laptop plugged in at work and at home, I made a point of using it on battery along for a full day (work and home). I did a fair amount of web surfing, editing documents...

    Not only do you and I have the same laptop, we also have the same external hard drive, and I also watch Lisa from MobileTechReview. :D

    Just got the Surface Laptop2

    I just got a Black Surface Laptop 2 as well. My very first Surface product. I'm really liking it so far!
