    Keyboard Dock Drains Battery

    Is anyone else experiencing this? When I leave my TF connected to the dock, which is 90% of the time, if I'm not using it I get a dead TF within a day. The battery is completely drained. This is with the unit shutdown and stored. Every single time I want to use my TF, I have to wait an hour or so for it to charge first.

    What gives?

    Are you getting the flashing orange light when you charge the TF? When the dock is about 95% the light should be green.

    Go to the Market and download Dual Battery Widget. Once installed, connect the TF and dock to power. Monitor the charge to see if both are being charged.. Let us know how you make out.

    Yes on the flashing orange (except it's a flashing red light). The last time I charged it, it went green at 95%... But the problem is, when the TF is completely powered down with a full charge, the next time I go to use it, it's dead as a brick.e to charge it again. Sometimes there's a day in between usage, sometimes a month. Same result.

    Downloading that app now.

    Now lets do a hard rest to see if that fixes your problem.

    Hard Reset:
    Unplug the power cord and shut the unit off and Press and Hold the power button and the "Down" volume button together until after the normal start up screen appears and is joined by some small print at the top of the screen then let them both go. After a few seconds you should see a couple of shapes in the middle of the screen called "Wipe Data" and "Android". Wait a few more seconds until the term "Cold Boot" appears in the list near the top of the screens and just press and release the "Down" volume button again and let it reboot. If you own the dock be sure and do this with the dock connected.

    I seem to be sort of having the same issue. I have check my keyboard version and I believe that I have the "working" one. With the box checked under MobileDock Battery Saving Mode it will not wake when you press a key, but with it unchecked it will.

    Now I have done a fresh NVFLash install of 3.2.1 and wiped data. I had it rooted and custom kernel before...btw. But the dual battery widget will show the TF discharging and the dock battery remain at the same value. Further, I can charge both by pluging the charger into the dock..... Arghhhh.

    I am now doing a hard reset and a erase everything from the privacy menu.

    What level is your dock remaining at?

    If your dock is not charging you may need to return to ASUS for a fix.

    Right now it is at 89% according to dual battery widget. I am charging them both right now. Could I have missed a firmware update for the keyboard? I was rooted and used a "rooted" patched firmware upgrade. Then I NVFlashed Build 8.6.5.9 from http://tabletroms.com/forums/transfo...ing-tools.html. Then it updated it 3.2.1 OTA.

    Has anyone looked at this?

    Upgraded Keyboard Dock now won't charge! - xda-developers

    There seems to be a switch on the dock that is related to charging.
