    What is draining my battery when screen off?

    Hi folks,

    I normal circumstances when laptop is on battery with screen off (working on idle) there should be no quick battery drain, rather it should last more when idle

    my Yoga3 is opposite - when screen off, some processes definitely are running - at least I can hear fan noise then as well as rainmeter shows high cpu use when i i press any key to turn on the screen

    is there any way to check what/which process is using then?

    indexing is disabled on battery

9 cell battery so-so fit. Battery pulled out by opening pc screen.
Ok, so I bought a 9 cell battery from a local store called for $137.99 and bypassed the $207.49 6 cell battery because I'm cheap and needed it now. As soon as I got home, I put it in, it fit perfectly. I opened it, only opened it roughly a 1/4 of...
