    So I was getting crashes when my xps was going to sleep mode when shutting lid.
    The downgrade to Bios 1.6.2 from 1.7 fixed this issue for me.

    It's new, stick with it as they tend to crap out in spectacular style by dropping to 30ish% wear level out of the blue.
    out of the several I have had they have all had **** out the box wear level.

    Just because you have a year old battery with better wear level doesn't mean it is better, it has still be in use a year and these things have a limited amount of recharges before they drop off the edge of the battery cliff.

    You've calibrated the new battery and gained 1% less *reported* wear level.
    New Li-Ion batteries usually reach their max potential within the first few charges so it's not a surprise you're seeing a small rise in it's reported capacity. If you calibrate the 1 year old battery you should see it's *reported* wear level going up, probably about 10% or more, depending on the battery usage pattern.

    The issue happen twice today, during playing shadow of war. Can feel sudden spike of frame drop.

    Is there any way to reset without need unplug battery?

    Any potential root cause? Which driver
    Another potential cause may be usb c adapter, I just purchase recently for hdmi with other usb port
