    I have the same problem with my Satellite R830-181.
    Even with all the things you mentioned disabled, the battery still loses power when off.
    There must be something in the laptop that's draining power even when switched off.
    Have you tried removing the battery and seeing if that makes a difference?

    That's a heck of a drain! As to what bbsix said, also, what happens if you DO use sleep mode? I will have to try this on my x775, my ul30 will sleep for 2 or 3 days then hibernate.


    I left my X775 unplugged when out of town for four weeks.

    Battery dead, 0 percent when booted yesterday. The battery came back to 100% but I'm now at 11% wear in overall capacity.

    This may be a function of the Sleep and Charge port both these models have?

    Seems to be a new BIOS update that may addresses the issue:
    ACPI Flash BIOS version 3.70 for Portege R830


    **EDIT**
    It's also supposed to fix USB 3.0 problems, confirmed above and here: http://forums.toshiba.com/t5/Windows-7/Portege-R835-USB-port-problem-wireless-mouse-amp-keyboard/m-p/297672#M9619

    I figured out why I couldn't load symbols (i.e., function names): the output file was not being created successfully in C:\, even when xperf is run as admin. For a while I thought the output was kernel.etl, but apparently it's just an intermediate working file that misses out on some postprocessing. Writing the output to my document directory worked better.

    Still can't figure out how to fix the bug though, sigh. Changing power plans doesn't help, and this registry tweak doesn't help.

    Bro, you have both laptops, can you tell me their real weight, I mean people says that R835 is heavier than R700, is it truth?
