My galaxy tab2 battery leaks power during standby. Why is

This answer was rated:

My galaxy tablet GT-P5110   10.1 loses battery charge when in standby mode overnight from 100% down to 60%.  Why is this?

Hi! My name is ***** ***** I will be assisting you. Let's get started!

That is strange for it to drain 40% battery overnight without being used; it is not usual.

How old is the tablet?

Hi Josh, The tablet is 2yrs old this week. I only noticed this drainage this morning. Could it be a one off?

It sounds like a random glitch in the firmware to be honest since it does not happen often or has not happened before.

Please plug in the tablet and while it is plugged in, hold down the POWER BUTTON until the tablet restarts. After the restart, let the tablet fully charge and check again.
