High Power Usage on idle (laptop battery issue)

rohdayoh

while on battery, my laptop on idle with the following settings, runs with 25 watt discharge rate (hwinfo). 
- 60hz
- Power Saver
- 20% brightness
- DGPU turned OFF.

according to reviews, and also other users, an 80 Whr battery on my laptop should run for over 10 hours on idle (8 watt discharge rate)
please help.

Laptop Specs :

[Lenovo Legion Slim 5 16AHP9]


- AMD Ryzen 7 8845HS 
- 16gb SODIMM Ram
- RTX 4060 8gb 
- 512gb ssd (SAMSUNG MZVL2512HDJD-00BL2
- 80 Wh battery (L22C4PC2)

(battery capacity is 82.550Wh instead of 80 if that's somehow useful information)

It doesn't seem that unusual to me, the question is how did you disable the dGPU? In BIOS or with Windows Device manager?

Disabling the dGPU can actually increase power consumption. What did you do?
