Question about Computers & Internet
I have a laptop laptop that is about 6 months old. The battery runs down about 10% per day when the computer is off. I can charge it up completely and when i turn it back on 4-5 days later the battery is down to 50% or so. It does not run down if i remove the battery from the computer, the battery holds its charge when not installed in the computer. The life of the battery seems to be about 4-5 hours when fully charged and the laptop is in use on battery only so i think the laptop is using up the battery even when off. Is this normal?
If the laptop is gone into a suspended mode it is still powered on but sleeping. This will continue to use power and will power down the battery over time.
You could enable hibernation which saves the current state of your pc so that when you activate it again it restores to your previous state of work. This will use close to no battery power to perform.
