    Battery life--with general usage--is satisfactory (4-6 hours).

    Standby battery life is still excessively bad, which includes the chipset and IME drivers that you linked to being installed.

    I finally solved this.

    For me, Windows 10 was using the new "modern sleep" function where much of the system remains on during sleep but is idling as much as possible. This is technically called the S0 sleep state for low power idle.

    Once I disabled that (which enabled the traditional S3 sleep state), standby times increased dramatically.

    During my tests today, S0 standby would lose 1% every 11.2 minutes. After switching to S3, it now loses 1% every 97.5 minutes, which is nearly 9x better and is what I expect to lose during standby.
