    What to expect battery wise.

    Just wondering what to exspect battery wise. I have been running for about 4 hours 2 in stand by and the dock battery is down to 85% (dual battery widget). Does that sound about right?

    What is the first 3 characters of your Docks Serial number ?

    If it is B40 - B50 or I think some B60 models - you might have to send it off for repair or return it as the chipset needs replacing to become compatible with the latest firmware

    Also you should update your firmware as it addresses a battery drain issue with the dock

    Its B60 but I did the test to see if it properly sleeps the keyboard and it did pass the test.

    How long should the battery last in the dock?

    I'm not sure those figures are out of line. Keep in mind that the dock is powering the dock and charging the tablet at the same time. A lot depends on what you are running and what you're doing.

    More importantly, is your tablet set to turn off wifi when the screen is off? The biggest battery hoggers in any modern electronics are the screen display, wireless (wifi, 3g/4g, bluetooth, etc.), and poorly written apps that won't shut the heck off when not in use.

    I highly recommend you install and activate auto airplane mode.

    do have the latest firm ware installed and ariplane mode by Don installed, I did notice that Bluetooth was turned on so I turned that of. The longest I have had the TF running without a charge was 10 hours and the dock was at 0% and the tabiet still had 69%. This is much better then the Archos 101 I have so I am still very happy just want to make sure I am somewhat in the standard operating of the battery.

    Was that using it or in standby ?

    I have had over 6 days standby with the tablet alone (No dock)

    I know you have auto airplane mode installed, but do you have it activated? You have to go into the app and press start.

    My battery, when in sleep mode, drops way way way less than what you're reporting. Something is not right here.

    yep its started. What I will do and run this until its out of power, dock and tablet and see how long it lasts. That should give me a good idea what is going on. So I will not be charging tonight if it has enough juice.
