    My lasts about a day, on standby only. With moderate use, about 7 hours. I expected it to last a lot longer on e. What are others finding?

    I'm still experimenting with different settings to see. Mine ran down quite fast originally. I've turned off syncing on pretty much everything and of course that helped. I'm still going to experiment over the coming weeks (probably over Christmas break) to see what happens if I turn syncing on and use airplane mode when I'm not using it, which seemed like it was possibly better for battery than just turning off wireless and Bluetooth individually. One of the other threads has a YouTube video that describes how to run the battery reports from the command line, which was helpful for me. I found that when I was in standby with wireless off, that my wireless adapter was what was using the most resources. My unprofessional, current theory is that the connected standby was still trying to sync and couldn't find a connection (like when you're in a bad signal area). I want to eventually see how it does if I keep all the syncing on and leave wireless on in standby.

    With all syncing in, I left on and don't use at all. It died in about 10 hours. I wonder if I need to exchange it?

    I think i got 6 hours use out of mine. Not too shabby for a windows computer.

    I did find that the wifi on all the time does drain it though.

    Im honestly not too worried, I keep mine plugged in most of the time (I only use it in once place), so it isnt a deal breaker for me. If i want all day battery life i can just turn my Macbook Air on

    I can keep mine in Standby overnight and only lose about 10-15%. Wireless is on, but I leave it on the Metro (Modern) interface and just tap the power button.

    How do I obtain this Metro interface?

    I think they mean on the start screen, as opposed to in an app.

    Now that I've gotten mine adjusted and set up completely for a couple weeks, I'm finding the battery life is quite alright after all. I started with a charge in the 90s this morning, used it some at school, and a lot this afternoon for YouTube, uploading, and keeping the screen on while I used it to show the notes I needed. I was at about 12% when it was time to go to bed.

    Interesting. I haven't noticed much of a difference, but I'm not a heavy user, mainly use it as an e-reader or browser. I did use it to connect to a Lync meeting today and it worked well. Battery life has been about the same for me, around 6 hours of continuous use, which in reality is about a day because I use it intermittently.

    How are you guys improving standby. I am getting about a day, but I'm still running updates and such to get caught up.
