Hi buddy,

I have also noticed a similar problem. During the notebook is powered off it looses battery power so after searching here a little bit in forum I founded out to disable the following features in BIOS:

-Wake up on LAN
-Wake up on Keyboard
-USB Sleep and Charge

After this your notebook shouldn’t loose so much battery power anymore. :)

Do you use your notebook most the time on battery power supply?
Is this 25% so important for you?
All you have done is right and should stop reducing battery capacity - http://aps2.toshiba-tro.de/kb0/FAQ9C015N0001R01.htm

I mean if you leave notebook OFF over the night it will lose the capacity and it is nothing unusual. In my opinion losing 2-5% capacity over the night is normal.
How much capacity will be lose in 10 days for example? Have you ever checked this?

Alic i had a similar situation and found out that my PC was booting up at 8:20am everyday (you probably wouldn't notice it if you have it to auto hibernate). A BIOS update solved it for me.

I have 3 laptop at home, when I shut down and leave several days, when you turn the battery pack is 100%, the battery consumption makes it degrade the ongoing burden that would not occur if the battery estubiste 100%

Wake-up on Lan: DISABLE
Wake on Keyboard: DISABLE
USB Sleep and Charge: DISABLE

Hi

Please check your user manual…
There you will find an info that the battery will always loose a little bit of the power even the notebook is powered off.
This depends also on the battery and how strong the battery is…

MasterG, from 100% to 25% in 4 days isn't normal!

Contact nearest Toshiba service, explain the situation and if they will confirm what you think ask for replacement.
I am pretty sure you will get new battery and it will be covered by warranty.
