Connected standby battery drain on 8.1 RT?


New Member
Hi everyone,

New member here--updated to 8.1 RT yesterday, everything seemed to be ok, but then battery drained from 40% to 10% overnight (~8 hours)! Looking at powercfg reports, connected standby had been draining the battery all day too. Previously on windows 8 RT, I got about a 4-5% drain every 8 hours. I installed no new apps except for the MS ones and photo slideshow is off...anyone else notice this issue/been able to fix it?
