    I was very hopefull after this article, but unfortunately this didn't work for my laptop. Battery is still good, because I got it out last night and put it in this morning: only 2% loss. Then I followed steps 1, 3, 4 and 5. Restarted and turned off. A few hours later the battery lost 17%… And suggestions?

      Please follow all the steps mentioned on the article (e.g. Roll Back the Intel Management Engine Interface Driver and check your battery's health).

    My Lenovo X1 Yoga was draining the battery completely overnight. I started shutting the system down manually. Push and hold the power button for a number of seconds until the computer turns off. Apparently using the Windows logo and then power shut down does not completely turn the system off.

    Step by step – Very helpful and easy to follow.
    I don't know what outcomes are – Window 10 is a fake one !

    When you do a restart, Windows 10 always turns off completely before restarting, usually after an update – because it has to, to complete the update. You can achieve the same thing with shut down by pressing the shift key and then clicking shut down. This unloads any of the fast start stuff and completely shuts down your laptop/PC as if you were doing a restart. However, this still hasn't helped me. When I received my laptop it was on about 60% battery and must have been like that from the factory. But at first boot it installed Windows 10 and I've had this battery drain problem (even when it's turned off) ever since. My 11 years old laptop with Windows 7 doesn't suffer from this problem at all so it must be Windows 10 doing it. Nothing I've tried including all the steps above has cured this issue, and my battery will completely drain over about 2-3 weeks if I don't turn it on or plug it in even when I've shift-shutdown. Something else is going on here to drain the battery. I am now considering installing a linux variant – probably SteamOS to see if I get the same thing happening. Good article though and it will probably help some people. :-)
