Popping in here too. Something-something “modern standby” (I call it “newspeak standby” because it seems to not be sleeping at all - just a really, deeply flawed low power mode).
I don’t know what it’s doing and I HATE that there seems to be no way to hold whatever-it’s-doing accountable. Task Manager doesn’t update while it’s in Newspeak Standby, so when it wakes, it’s got that stupid look on its face like
(✿◠‿◠) What? I wasn’t doing anything, I swear!
Every time I have the computer asleep and plugged-in, the computer heats up significantly, and the fans start up. I charge my computers solely from solar power using a power bank (just a symbolic gesture really - the solar setup it charges from dumps 80-90% of its daily stored battery energy into the wall because I only need 10-20% of it every day for charging everything I use). Thus, I have granular visibility into how many watts it’s drawing at any given time. It also makes the issue significantly more painful as I can’t rely on charging the laptop while it’s asleep and plugged-in.
Just a moment ago, “asleep”, fan roaring: 49 watts.
Now, typing this with display at 30% brightness: 37 watts.
This is way more than just battery charging, and “every day, every time” is way more often than doing menial occasional tasks like Windows Update or indexing (indexing is complete, Windows is up to date).
When it’s unplugged, it’s better behaved and sleep behavior is satisfactory. When it’s in hibernate, of course it consumes near nothing (though 1.2 watts while fully charged is still… not great - my power bank auto-shuts-off at <1 watt and it never reaches that).
Mine is also a brand new Framework laptop (batch unknown/not shown anywhere, but has the new Tempo audio chip) with a new install of Windows 10 Pro, and it’s exhibited… unusual firmware-like issues, such as not exposing the “network in standby” options, and having a weird hard-defined 20-minute hibernate timer set by default (in another thread, this was pointed out as unusual in my build).
