Description of the issue:
Lately I’ve been noticing an alarming issue where I close the lid on my MacBook Pro for the day, and when I come back to it the next day, my battery is below half charge, or is nearly completely drained!
In the last week, I went to Activity Monitor and looked in the Energy tab. It has a category for “Preventing Sleep,” and Brave was the only app. where it said “Yes” under that category. Unfortunately, it does not give any indication as to why.
Today as I post this, this problem with battery drain happened again, but when I looked at the Energy tab under Activity Monitor, and looked at “Preventing Sleep,” it said “No” for Brave. It did not list any app. as preventing sleep mode. Frustrating.
I suppose what I could do until this is diagnosed is quit out of Brave before closing up my MacBook Pro for the day, and then relaunch it when I want to get back to it. It’s been good about restoring all browser windows and tabs on restart.
How can this issue be reproduced?
I only have a suspicion about what’s causing this. I do not know yet how to reproduce it in a way that would satisfy a debugging process.
Here are my System Preferences > Battery settings:
Turn display off after: 15 mins.
Slightly dim the display while on battery power: selected
Enable Power Nap while on battery power: Not selected
Automatic graphics switching: selected
Optimize video streaming while on battery: selected
Optimized battery charging: selected
Low power mode: selected
Under “Battery Health…” Manage battery longevity: selected
That’s the best I can give you right now.
When I close the lid on my MacBook Pro, I expect it to enter sleep mode.
