I got a Toshiba NB200 last month and I noticed that the battery discharges itself about 70% over two days if not used. I found this forum while searching on this issue and found the following thread.

I followed the instructions on it and disabled the USB Sleep and Charge. However despite disabling it and saving the settings when I switch back on it has changed itself back to Mode 1. Is there something else I need to change in order for it to stay disabled?

Many thanks!

What is the BIOS version on your NB200?

I have v1.20 and the battery only runs down about 2% overnight. Update the BIOS if its not v1.20

In the BIOS, make sure that these are disabled:

USB Sleep and Charge
Wake on Keyboard
Wake on LAN

In the control panel theres something called "Toshiba USB Sleep and Charge Utility".
In there you will find and option to disable it. Also be sure to check out [my In-depth review on the NB-205|http://www.mynetbook-reviews.com/toshiba-nb205-review/] .
