    T100 battery drain on shutdown

    Hey i got this awesome tablet a week or so ago, lately realized that sometimes when I shut it down, the camera light turns on and when I turn it back on again, the battery is largely drained... i.e 50% or so.

    I took an extensive look at a lot of forums nobody posts any issue resembling to mine, if someone could help, please, I would very much appreciate it.

    Nope, I am not seeing that behaviour. In fact the opposite, when I close the lid it seems to hibernate quite well and doesn't use much battery.

    Apply all Windows updates and Asus live updates, and see if it helps. If not, you might have a defective unit.

    I's experiencing the same problem.. haven't found a solution yet, looking through windos event viewer it might have something to do with windows update or app updates.. but i'm not shore

    Have you flashed the new bios update? It should fix all known issues. I have not experienced any issues after flashing it.

    May you explain to me how to do that ?
    I updated windows and i check for updates manually every day since I disabled the maintenance thinking its the cause of the problem.

    Alright guys an update on the problem, flashing the BIOS UPDATE did no help. sadly.
    But I realised that when it happens, when the tablet is SHUT DOWN and the camera light stays on, if I undock the keyboard, the light shuts down.
    Let me know if anyone has any remarks,
    thanks

    I had the same thing happen to me this morning. It is possible I closed the screen down right after I shut down and the screen went black. When I opened it up the white camera light was on and my battery was down to 50%. Did I close the screen too fast and thus made it hibernate instead of letting it shut down properly? I am not sure what is up but I will check the camera light before closing the screen to the keyboard to see if that avoids this problem.

    Can you guys please make sure your tablet is firmly seated into the keyboard dock, and see if these problems continue to persist? I noticed that the tablet sometimes behaves erratically if the tablet/keyboard connection isn't 100% solid. One time I thought the tablet was securely attached (because I heard the "clicks" when I docked it), but they keyboard was not responding normally, so I pushed the tablet down into the keyboard dock again, and I felt something else click, and then the problems went away.

    Please make sure the connector and port contact points are clean, and the connection is firmly established. I have a feeling that a flaky connection might have been the cause of some of the problems mentioned in some reviews, particularly that MobileTechReview one.

    My T100 has the same problem with the tablet firmly seated in the keyboard dock. When docked in the keyboard with the lid closed overnight the battery drain is very high, wish their was a solution. I see talk of updating the BIOS may solve the issue, but then again I read ASUS have pulled the BIOS update.

    How can I find out what BIOS I currently have installed?
