Re: Reduced battery life after recent software updates


Something interesting i have discovered after countless hours of frustration is that my particular problem seems to be related to 5ghz wireless. I found that if i shut off my wireless at night the battery will only drain 7%. Where as if i am connected via 5ghz wireless it will lose close to 90% to make things even more intersting, i found that the power loss is only happening when i am connected on my 5ghz band. When i connect via 2.4 ghz i only lose 7% similar to having the wireless off completely. I think he operating system is doing something weird and doesnt allow it to sleep while on 5ghz band.

I hope this info helps someone else.
