My wife has a Toshiba Satellite M500 laptop. It's running Win8 off of a fresh install from the DVD.
I've set it to hibernate fairly aggressively in an attempt to conserve standby battery life, but we still find that most times we pick it up to use it that the battery is completely discharged and it needs to be plugged in.
I did some experiments with powercfg /energy and /batteryreport to try to figure it out. I've found that while hibernated and while off, the battery drains over 30% per day. I tried physically removing the battery from the computer, and found that the battery did not discharge in that state but it's certainly not attractive to try to remember to take the battery out of a computer each time you stop using it.
Is there anything further I could do to diagnose this? The battery health indicators seem to say that the battery is healthy, but I'm wondering if replacing the battery makes sense. Or am I just spoiled by the standby life of my tablet?
