Surface Pro Hibernate

Hi,

i have a strange issue with my SP.

Whenever i don't use the SP i put it into Hibernate mode (not standby), While in Hibernate the SP should not eat up battery life.
Unfortunately my SP eats up the battery while in Hibernate ( ~ 30 % in 8 hours).

A complete reset of the SP did not help.

Anyone else with this issue?

I have the exact same problem since a couple of days ago...
Plus my fans have been running like crazy with just Chrome running.
Any help or suggestions would be appreciated.
Thanks!!

I cant say i have noticed the same thing. I usually shutdown my SP if i know i am not going to be using it for a while. I usually leave it in hibernate mode if im using it frequently.

I think the 8.1 preview set battery life back a little and is a known issue. I know if you disable BT in 8.1 you actually lose battery life.

i had an issue with the battery. After contacting the Support i received a replacement.

Now everything is fine.

Btw...

Use the following command in the command line to see the battery utilization.


powercfg -batteryreport


You can find the report in your user Directory.
