    Tablet battery drain


    I have Dell tablet, and with Windows 8 the battery was fine, after upgrading and doing a clean install of Windows 10,the battery drain has been terrible.

    I left my tablet docked to its keyboard (which also supplies extra battery to my tablet) overnight with WiFi off and sleeping. I left it at %65 battery woke up and now it it was at %5.

    Anyone know what the problem is? I tried doing in airplane mode and still.

    I've heard there's a bug that affects battery life with some intel chipsets, and Microsoft and Intel are working on a fix. You'll probably just have to sit tight until that's released.
