I have this Battery Drain issue on my brand new base 14" MacBook Pro M1 Pro chip. 8Core/16GB Memory. I did a Factory reset last night and re-installed the OS (Monterey - 12.0.1). So far there was no Battery Drain while on Sleep, but while using it with very minimal apps open such as Safari 5-6 tabs open, Remote Desktop App and Activity Monitor it has consumed 30% in the last 3 hours of usage. The battery has been set to low power mode along with "Slightly dimmed screen while on Battery power" option ticked, I have the Brightness set to 45-50% .No Bluetooth devices connected. No external device/s connected and no External Monitor. Find my Mac is Turned off, almost all notifications are off. Display is manually set to P3-500 nits with 60Hz with Auto Brightness off, True Tone Off. There is no Time Machine configured or any other Backup services. I'm not listening to any music or Spotify/Pandora. I'm really starting to think that this is really for Pro users who really need the power and doesn't really care about battery life. The M2 chips will probably be geared towards people like me. But then again, I was planning to use this for running multiple VM's, Visual Studio, iTerm2, Watching some training videos, Study/Lab materials etc. I'm really hopping that this is just a bug that can be addressed in an update. I really like the 14" and don't want to go to 16" as its a little to big for my preference. Though I have heard that some 16" MBP with M1 Pro Chip having the same issues. Has anyone been able to figure this thing out? I wish there was a way to test Big Sur on this machine to see if its really the OS or its just the hardware on this laptop that's consuming the power.
