I've got myself an Acer Swift 3 SF315-41 recently (model with Ryzen 2500u) and I've been enjoying it so far in general, either the performance and the build quality.
However, there is an issue that has been bugging which I've noticed recently. Even with the computer completely switched off (no suspending, no hibernatioon), I can lose as much as 10% battery charge overnight.
Here's what I've tried so far:
- Disable "Fast Startup" on power settings
- Reset the battery using the pinhole method
- Follow the procedure to calibrate the battery
- Uninstalled ACPI-Compliant Battery via Device Manager and re-installed automatically
The issue still persists. I've been searching around in the Internet for any clues and I realised that there is a powered-off USB charging functionality in this laptop, so I additonally installed Acer Quick Access to switch that feature off but it seems that it is completely ignored, i.e, shutting down the laptop and the USB port is still providing power.
If it is noteworthy I've also got Linux installed and even switching the laptop off via Linux does not help with the battery issue at all, so I somehow think this is not OS related and it's maybe BIOS/UEFI related.
I went to the support page for my model and there is only one BIOS update available (1.04). This left me confused because when I boot into the InsydeH2O UEFI it tells me that I'm currently running version V2.01, which isn't even available anywhere online.
... and that pretty much sums it up. I really hope someone around here can shed some light on what might be happening - other than that the laptop works absolutely brilliantly.
