Battery draining after shutdown


Hello,

i have a HP laptop (17-AK010NM A10-9620P) and run Kubuntu 18.04 (also tried on 16.04).

The problem is that when i shutdown it it drains a battery of about 10% overnight (no USB is connected to it). I have tried different solutions, like disable Waken on Lan to no avail-

If i shutdown it from Windows i get no similar problems. This is really strange to me.

Does anybody experience similar problems?

P.S. I had hard time to enable wireless card and had to compile driver by myself (RTL8723DE. Is here perhaps any problem?

The battery on my old Thinkpad slowly runs down too. I'd always assumed it was just the inevitable result of using an old battery. A quick check on-line shows a lot of people with a similar problem, some with Windows and even some with newish hardware. The thing to try is to remove the battery over night and see if it still runs down. If it doesn't, then the problem is obviously the computer.

Go to the BIOS Power Settings and make sure that USB charging is always disabled, except when the computer is running, otherwise the usb ports are being kept live.

Another problem that can arise is when you select "shutdown" in the menu, but immediately close the lid: that forces it into sleep mode before the OS has had time to shutdown. Make sure that all the little lights are off before closing.

If windows doesn't then I'd think that you are really going into hibernate and not shutdown. Might use systemd shutdown command. I forget new naming. Acpi issue?
Getting hung in power off task.?

" The systemd init system provides additional commands that perform the same functions; for example systemctl reboot or systemctl poweroff." https://www.debian.org/releases/stab...h08s01.html.en

Hello both for a reply.

@DavidMcCann
I don't have any such settings in BIOS to disable USB charge. The other thing is that i almost never close the lid so this can't be the issue. And the funny thing is Windows do not give me such problems.

@Jefro
In KDE session in terminal i wrote "systemctl poweroff" and the computer shut down but in the morning the problem still persists. I doubt it goes to hibernate mode because i do not have a SWAP partition.

Do you have perhaps any other suggestions?

Thank you.

$ sudo shutdown -H -P +0

-H = halt
-P = power off
+0 = now

The syntax of shutdown changed with systemd. Some things still us OLD methods $(shutdown -h now), which doesn't always do the things on NEW hardware.

There could also be extras like usb ports ON, wake on lan, and such which DO have UEFI options. Although buried in some cases, you have to disable / enable and such various options to "expose" those options. I had to delete windows keys just to have the secure boot disable save between boots on my hp 15 machines. ba053nr / bw053od

As a work around you might press and hold the power button 5+ seconds after shutting down to hardware shutdown. Although not the best practice when it comes to spinning rust drives.

Reboot to only bios and then use power button to power off to see if it fails.

If tests show only some linux then I'd think it's acpi issue somehow. A very slight issue with how power off may be affecting daughter boards for power or battery.

Guess you could do normal shutdown. Take battery out and ac power off for a few minutes then replace battery to see if it is hung in a power state.

Get a live usb or dvd of some other distro and retest.

Hi,

@Shadow7
i tried "sudo shutdown -H -P +0" and "systemctl poweroff" to no avail.

@Jefro
I rebooted to windows and shut it down from there of and there was no battery draining. Something is really going on with Kubuntu. I also disable WOL, no changes here as well.

I will try with some other distro.

Hey everybody ...

So i tried Arch Linux and i got no different results. This is what i get from some other tweaks:
- instead of booting from UEFI i decided to try boot from BIOS. This gives me some different results. Before, battery started to drain immeadiately after shutdown but now it starts to draing after about 8 hours or so - really strange
- Windows: if i shutdown from Windows (from specific account) there is no battery draining. But if i shutdown system from Windows' login (display) manager battery drains
- BIOS is updated, no improvements whatsoever

Is it possible the culprit could be something about hwclock? I read somewhere that disabling hwclock helped somebody. For a testing purposes i set hwclock to my system clock.

If you got any ideas, please, i am really desperate here.

if you don't have an actual kill switch, or don't take the battery out, it will drain even when the laptop is completely switched off. not much (maybe depending on its age?), but definitely will.
this is not operating system or driver dependent.

Maybe Windows hibernates, which uses no power, but Linux suspends, which uses power to refresh the memory contents. There is a setting for the power button to make it suspend, hibernate or do nothing. It's in the power settings. Check what it's set to. I think it defaults to suspend.

Linux can hibernate or suspend.
Hibernate should be the same as completely powered off, with regard to power consumption.
suspend will be more.

OP said "shutdown", though.

Yes, it can. But you have to tell it which one if you have a preference. I'm pretty sure software shutdown neither suspends nor hibernates. Pressing the power button can be set to suspend, hibernate or do nothing.

I agree that the way the OP is shutting down may be an issue.

Exactly how do you shut linux down?

I shut down computer from KDE menu - shutdown. I also tried to shutdown down from terminal "Systemctl poweroff" to no avail.

I assure you i do not suspend or hibernate computer.

But now i noticed that battery is draining also if i shutdown computer by pressing power button for 5 seconds, reagardless if i do it in Linux or Windows or BIOS so i guess the problem is in hardware. I will take it to the service to see what is going on.

I will come back when i will have more info.

Thanks for now.

^ do you see the backlight still on after shutting down?
maybe this is an ACPI problem, it happens sometimes: Linux halts the system, but then doesn't know how to actually power off the machine. it is solvable.

if your machine didn't come with linux pre-installed, customer service won't like it.
