Battery draining way, way too fast (ASUS pc)

Copper Contributor


Now, I'm aware that with Windows 11 the battery doesn't exactly have the same life as with Windows 10. I have made peace with that.

However, a few minutes ago I opened my pc, which had been shut off since yesterday, and was fully charged. I SAW the battery at 100%. By the time I reached YouTube the computer had shut down. No battery. The whole operation might have taken one minute if I was going slowly. 

I remember this happening once or twice before, so it's not a regular occurrence, but I would like to know if there is a way to solve this since when I'm at Uni I don't always have power sockets close to my seat.

Thanks :)

Have you installed all updates for the Windows?
Have you update all drivers?
Did you contact ASUS support and check with them?
Go to System -> Power & battery and check the usage of Battery levels. This will show a detailed map of battery usage. And you can find what is the problem with the battery drain.
