    I am noticing a 5% battery drain over night even though my MBP is closed and should be in sleep mode. Anyone else have this issue with the new touchbar MBP's?

    Can't you go into Activity Monitor to see what is using your battery while it's sleeping or is that not possible?

    i have noticed my brand new tmbp used to drain battery 5-7% overnight. but after all the files got indexed in spotlight, the drain problem went away.

    For me I hope they fix it. At times it can be vey significant. For example yesterday, I used the sleep function, left a meeting and went to a client's office, approximately 45 minutes. when I closed the computer battery was at 18%. When I opened the computer again, is was 3%.

    This is quite a common occurrence. Never happened on previous MacBook pros.....
