    Hmm, that's odd. The HP drivers were the newest, but it looks like they've been taken down from the website and replaced with older ones. Doing some digging now but the Lenovo one's may well be newer...

    Seeing the same thing just now when I checked, cold booted and ran metro ie then desktop for a couple of minutes and noticed the back of the device near the camera was warm so I checked task manager and ntoskrnl was taking up 23% CPU.

    Restart the tablet will fix this problem. I hope asus release new firmware to fix it soon.

    Breed - thanks for posting this great info. I read through this thread and had a couple questions for anyone:

    1. Can I install the intel chipset driver only and not have to install the wifi/Bluetooth/etc? Or does installing a new chipset driver break the other drivers?

    2. Is the issue with high CPU utilization caused by installing the new Intel driver?

    No, I have experienced this problem with stock drivers, and I got a solution that works for me. Go to Services and disable ASUSACPI service and restart tablet. You will lose the functionality for some of the hotkeys on the dock, but cpu usage on System and the battery draining will stop.

    Hi, isn't the ASUSACPI service needed for power management of the tablet? I don't have the keyboard dock, maybe I can disable it permanently if it is really not necessary.

    You should be fine just installing the Intel Chipset Driver. The HP one is no longer the newest - for some reason it was taken off the Website, so I'll be linking to the Lenovo one when I update the guide tonight. It a slight modification to an xml file that comes with it though, otherwise in only updates the front camera drivers, not the back and flash.

    Thanks for this information, but could you be a bit more specific and let us know which hotkey functionality on the keyboard one would lose. Also like some asked, doesn't the ASUSACPI handle the power management? Thanks again.

    I just wonder how companies think treating their customers poorly helps them. I can say Asus will be one of the last companies I consider when it comes to buying my next device and will probably go with Microsoft as they will have no choice but to support their devices due to the high profile they will undoubtedly have. Surface Pro 2 with Haswell anyone?
