    A couple builds ago (Redstone 1) I noticed battery drain colouring, and when I did some testing, I found out that I lost 10% without battery saver and 6% with. I expected this to be fixed within the next couple of release preview builds, but none did. Yesterday, I updated to Redstone 2, and I only lost 7 percent overnight without battery saver. Haven't tested with yet, but will tonight. What I want to ask is that is that the percentage you guys lose, or should I hard reset and have a fresh OS? Love yo hear your opinions, and thanks for any help.

    Thanks. The numbers are more in line with what I expect now. Maybe I just had a faulty build.

    some services would auto-run when at night. you should check and close them. and it seems this version lose battery sooner than before.

    Last night, I turned on battery saver and flight mode, and I only lost one percent, so I was pretty happy with that. I also turned off a lot of background apps, since they were taking a considerable amount of battery. Thanks everybody for the help.
