    I have a touch cover which is always connected to my Surface. I noticed that even if I don't use the tablet the whole day, the battery drains around 30% from a full charge. (the surface was in sleep, I never turn it off). Recently, I removed the touch cover and left my Surface alone for several days (I'm actually not using my Surface much lately) and today I checked the battery, and it drained 30% as well from a full charge, but this was over several days. So this leads me to believe that even in sleep mode/standby mode, the touch cover drains quite a bit of battery.

    Has anyone else noticed this?

    Do a more controlled test. Remove the Touch cover, fully charge the Surface, then reboot it. Check the battery after 4 hours. Then repeat the procedure with the Touch cover on.

    if you have lots of apps running in the background would that cause the battery to go down even if the device is in sleep mode?

    Sorry but I think this is just a coincidence. I agree that you probably have something else causing the issue. I haven't noticed any difference in battery consumption with the cover on or off....
