Okay I have found my first my first serious issue with my R1F and it is battery related. When I first took my R1F on the road a few days ago I charged the unit the evening before until it stopped charging and then unplugged it. It was properly turned off and I left it like that over night. The next morning I decided to get some work done for one of the classes I had that day and booted up the R1F. I was shocked to see that there was only 86% charge left. I was extremely worried that this meant I too had battery wear problems but after being able to charge it back up to 100% and seeing a battery time of 3 hours and 40 minutes I dismissed the problem. This was not correct however, today after leaving the R1F for a night and a day turned off with at least 25% of the charge remaining right now I booted up and the battery warning indicator was flashing. After boot I was horrified to find that only 6% of the battery charge was left. Obviously something is eating the charge even when the Tablet is powered down (not hibernating but properly powered down). Is this a known issue? I vaguely remember reading about this but I am not sure and with all these battery related topics I cannot find it. Another thing is that ASUS Live Update will not start. I have tried starting it three times from the start menu but nothing is happening. Wierd. I cannot call ASUS until Monday but I hope to have resolved these issues by then. I don't have problems with the headphones so that is something to be fearful about at least.
