High battery drain on switch.

Anyone else suffering from high battery drain on their switch lately?

Over the last week or so I'm losing 50-60% over night!

At first I thought it was due to the new game I was playing (immortals fenyx rising) & wondering if it was constantly connecting to ubisoft for online saves. However last night I left lego star wars in sleep mode & it went from 71% to 19% in 7 hours.

Now I'm wondering if it has something to do with the last 2 updates, 14.0.0 & 14.1.0, as they now include connecting to switch online to check if you have expiring platinum coins.

Some games kill it in sleep mode, while others are just fine. I've found some games to do what you've described.
Last night I turned off the new notification for platinum points & left lego star wars running....... Its only lost 2%!!!

I think I have my culprit!
