Laptop Battery Drainage While Shutdown And Unplugged?

Oct 24, 2015

I upgraded my laptop from Windows 7 to Windows 10 recently. The laptop battery is now draining 20% overnight when the laptop is shutdown and unplugged. With Windows 7 the battery drainage was negligible (even over a week). The laptop is a Lenovo Thinkpad Type 1143-3FU. The Thinkpad has a red light which glows while on. After shutdown it now flashes a few times after shutdown before stopping (rather than just going out) which indicates to me that something is still running, but I do not know what. The laptop battery is good. The computer does not appear to be hibernating because when I start the computer it shows the Lenovo screen first thing.

Sleeping Laptop Wakes Up When Unplugged

Mar 3, 2016

I have my laptop set to sleep when I close the lid. That works. But after the computer is sleeping and the optical mouse has shutdown (lamp off), if I simply unplug the power brick it will wake up again, the sleep light goes off and the mouse lamp comes back on and it starts running (lid closed).

WiFi Speed Poor When Laptop Unplugged From AC Power

Jan 31, 2016

I recently updated my HP ENVY laptop from Windows 8.1 to Windows 10 & immediately started having issues with my WIFI speed. I was able to connect to the wireless network just fine with no limited connectivity, etc but the speed crawls. It's only my laptop...all other wifi devices are running with no noticeable difference. I went through a bunch of troubleshooting steps and couldn't get it to improve.

I was able to figure out my wifi speed is great when my laptop is connected to ac power, but immediately drops speed when unplugged. All of my initial troubleshooting was on battery power.

I checked the driver Power Management tab and unchecked the Allow the computer.... option. Also Control Panel-Power Options and changed the Wireless Adapter Settings to be on Maximum Performance for both On Battery & Plugged In.

Laptop Stuttering After Plugged In With Battery?

Oct 18, 2015

i had my HP Pavilion dv6 7050ca laptop for 3 years now and it was working perfectly until today...I put in my battery (I usually only run my laptop with power cable without battery) and unplugged it to go downstairs to work. After I was done, i put it to sleep, brought it back upstairs and replugged in everything (headset, mouse) including the power cable and once I woke up the laptop, it became insanely stuttery, from the windows 10 interface to the mouse cursor to games to web browsing to everything! Everything still opens fast but it is just the movement of things: mouse cursor, gaming, web browsing, videos, etc. I already tried shutting down and taking out the battery and running it with only power cable like I used to, reinstalling graphics drivers, restarting the computer, unplugging nd re plugging, nothing seems to be working!

Laptop Freezes On Sleep / Shutdown?

Jan 10, 2016

I had recently performed a clean reinstall when I upgraded my laptop to a Samsung 850 Evo, and ever since then I've had problems with sleep. If I initiate sleep, hibernation, or shutdown then the screen goes black but the status LEDs stay on. punching all the buttons do NOTHING, with my only recourse being to press the power button until the lights go out. After which the system acts as if I woke from hibernation as normal. Restarts are unaffected, which is a good thing as having to force-restart my laptop every week will get old fast.I believe I have installed all needed drivers, and Device Manager does not show anything missing.

Laptop Turns Back On After Complete Shutdown

Dec 6, 2015

I have a gaming laptop. Recently after updating to w10 november update, i have noticed that my laptop sometimes turns itself on after a complete shutdown. It usually occurs 2 seconds after complete shutdown. Ive checked if maybe it was a battery issue but nothing is leaking. I have not opened my laptop yet but this is the only problem i have. Is there any software to check what could possible cause this. Also my laptop never boots itself up while in sleep either connected to charger or off charger so its safe to say it only occurs when i just fininshed using my laptop.

Performance :: Laptop Doesn't Wake From Sleep (Boots From Shutdown Instead Of Waking)

Oct 15, 2015

When I put my laptop to sleep and then attempt to wake it up, it will power on (going through the boot up screens) instead of just waking up, thus causing me to lose any information open on the computer.

I have tried a few things to try to wake it up to no avail:

sfc /scannow in cmd
unplug all usb devices before going to sleep/waking up
rollback graphics drivers
resetting power plan settings and power button settings back to default state

Is there some memory dump file to fix this?

Virtual Key Stuck Down Even If Keyboard Is Unplugged

Aug 21, 2015

I am periodically experiencing an issue where the o button starts typing itself continuously until I either restart or lock the PC. It's not a keyboard issue, since it happens whether the keyboard is plugged in or not, even with a different keyboard.

I haven't yet found a way of triggering it, but once it starts, it happens quite often after each time I stop it.

Realtek Speakers Not Working When Headphones Unplugged

Jan 1, 2016

Last night I plugged in headphones to the small round jack (not the USB) and sound worked fine as Iistened to a program. When I unplugged the headphones, I cannot get any sound to come out of the computer. I've tried restarting, muting/un-muting, and I've looked at all audio settings I can find. I cannot locate headphones settings - they don't show up anywhere. I recently installed the Windows 10 update a couple of weeks ago and this is the first time I've used headphones in this jack. Wondering if I need updated drivers but can't locate and system says drivers are fine.

How To Turn Off Battery Saver

May 1, 2015

OK.. I have a laptop where the battery charging is broken so it has zero battery and needs be on mains all the time. I use it to test Windows 10.. (just installed build 10074).

the problem is, is that it will not install updates. it finds updates. but it looks like battery saver is on - so it says to put it on mains (but it IS on mains!!!) and will not download.

If I go to 'battery saver' in settings it is on and the radio button to turn off is greyed out.. There seems to be no way I can turn this battery saver feature off (I guess because I low on battery.. so I now in a catch 22) so it will do its updates..

How I can turn battery save off? I guess there must be a registry key somewhere..

After installing an Acer tool PowerSmart Manager to optimize my laptop's battery life, the battery icon disappeared from my notifications area. (This tool was meant for Windows 7).Not only that, but I can't check the battery levels (using either Windows Mobility options or an external battery monitoring software).Uninstalling the software doesn't revert the battery icon, and I still can't check my battery levels.Is there any way of fixing without reinstalling Windows?
