    Late 2013 13" MBPr, fully charged (100%), battery health normal, nap sleep off, nothing appears to be running. MBP put to sleep at 8 AM, open lid at 4PM, battery at 0%. That was 2 days ago.

    Yesterday, fully charged again. Used MBPr about 2 hours, simple web browsing. Put it to sleep at 46%. Open lid next morning, battery at 0%.

    Planning to go to Apple soon if cannot get some help here.

    Have you checked what processes are running?

    Yes, I have checked processes, nothing using unusual CPU, energy or other.

    Battery goes from 100% to 0% while sleeping with no applications running when put to sleep. I can restart, fully charge, then restart, no apps running, put to sleep. 8 hours later open lid, and battery is drained. Diagnostics say battery is normal. The MBP is only six months old.

    It sounds like a faulty battery to me, I recommend a visit to the Genius Bar.
