[Bug 1479322] Re: Acer Aspire M5 481T consuming power while turned off! Battery drains with system halted!
I am running Linux Mint 17.3 Cinnamon with kernel 4.2.0-18.
I power off using the Menu>Quit>Shut Down sequence. My battery indicator shows 100% at power off
When I reboot in the morning the battery indicator shows 60%.
In trying to ascertain if this was a hardware or software problem I have
tried the following:
I used the Menu>Quit>Restart sequence and let the laptop start to boot
into Windows. I then hit the power off button. The next morning on
booting into Linux Mint the battery indicator showed 100%.
I also tried just closing all applications in Cinnamon and then hitting
the power off button. On power on and reboot the next morning the
battery showed 100%.
I then tried closing all applications in Cinnamon and opening a terminal
and issuing "sudo shutdown -h now" - Next morning on reboot the battery
I also tried Menu>Quit>Shut Down and removing the battery - Next
morning booted into Mint after reinserting the battery and power was
indicated at 100%.
This would indicate to me that the problem is related to Linux in some

Acer Aspire M5 481T consuming power while turned off! Battery drains
with system halted!
Status in linux package in Ubuntu:
Guys, I'm facing this problem just since I installed Ubuntu 15.04. The
laptop came with Windows 8 installed and this problem didn't exists
there. Everything seems to run just fine, but when I turn it off with
50% of battery for instance there is no energy after some hours and I
can feel that the laptop is a little hot, but there is no noise like
anything was on.. What could be happening? I've searched for some
solution, already tried to include some options in grub config like
noapic, nolapic, irqpoll, acpi=off and others without solution. Also
tried to check WOL but it's ok too. What could be happening? How to
solve this problem?
