Sleep/hibernate mode battery consumption

Using my 4 years old asus laptop and noticed that every night my laptop battery drains with 10-20% of the battery.
Tried using sleep and hibernate mode and the drain percentage same.
I checked energy consumption and noticed that at first hours of sleep mode my laptop consuming 5W and after some time it starts consume 18W.
Installed “laptop mode tools” and see no changes.

A bit more system info might help potential responders e.g.

inxi --full --admin --verbosity=7 --filter --no-host

… and: How to provide good information
Also, are any devices connected to the USB ports, or is the system set to wake on a keypress or mouse movement etc.? Or does the system require a press of the power button to wake it?

Cheers :slight_smile:

Try some others: Power Management - Manjaro Linux
The one that has sane default configuration for me is TLP, though I still configure it a little more, while PowerTOP doesn’t really survive across sleep/hibernate. Upon wake, it has to be rerun manually for it to correctly manage power consumption of all devices.

I used tlp but it was the same.

My laptop battery health is 56% could it be my problem?
Do it standart when my laptop uses 18w energy consumption on sleep mode?

It is not good, and likely to fail soon. May have been caused by the regular battery drain each time the machine is supposed to be in sleep or, particularly, hibernate mode.

When (supposedly) in Hibernate, what happens if you pull the battery & then re-insert it, and attempt to resume?

Do it standart when my laptop uses 18w energy consumption on sleep mode?

No, the “normal” sleep may suck only 1-5W depending manufacturer’s implementation.

Do my laptop should be connected to power?

I’d certainly recommend it. My ThinkPad is set to maintain the battery at around 95-97% of full capacity to avoid possible overcharging.

I always have my machines connected to AC wherever possible. I only run on battery when I have no access to an AC outlet.

But keeping it connected to power doesnt solution for me.
I am trying to locate my sleep battery drain problem.

True, but it will help preserve your battery for a bit longer whilst we try to find a solution. :wink:

Could it be the issue that I using video-hybrid-intel-nvidia-450xx-prime driver?

I suppose that’s possible but I’d consider it unlikely. I’d rather suspect that the machine is in fact not going into full hibernate mode which is why I suggested the battery-pull test (I wouldn’t normally as there is a risk of disk corruption, but should be easily fixable).

If the machine resumes normally or does a cold boot might provide a clue. I don’t have knowoledge of NVidia unfortunately.

I should’ve experienced the same issue if that is true.
