    Battery Drain

    I have not used my TF for several days. It and the keyboard were fully charged when I last shut it down. When I fired it up tonight, the key board was totally drained and the TF at about 30 %. It was off, not sleeping. Why the drain?

    Not sure what all background apps were running such as how often email was being checked, how many notifications were set? I was excited today when i plugged in my keyboard that has been sitting fully charged but unconnected from the Transformer since Friday and it showed 98%! I was like sweet, this didn't lose but 2% in the last 3 days. For some reason when the dock is connected it does lead to some drainage. Several days, how many is several? I would suggest shutting it off in the future and not just sleep mode.

    I want to know how you leave your TF alone for a few days.... I lucky to make it 3 hours.

    The dock battery does drain when sleeping and docked. When undocked.and sleeping it holds the charge. Also there is a wifi setting about using the wifi when sleeping/charging. Any time the unit is docked and tglhe dock has battery, the TF is in a charging mode.

    See this post for some info. The Dock keeps the docked TF fully charged even if the TF is powered down. What else the Dock does in this state I don't know.

    This really bugs me.

    Seems like there should be a way to completely turn off battery use.

    I'm hoping a firmware fix is in the near future.
