I am running Arch linux on my Lenovo ideapad 320 with KDE as the GUI. My laptop is always connected to a good power source but for some reason it keeps losing power from the battery, i.e. 1% every 2 days. When I close all the applications and leave it charge, it does reach to 100%, so I'm not sure why it loses power in the first place.
I have TLP installed and enabled, so does anyone have any idea to fix this power problem? Or are there any certain packages I need to know about that drains the battery?
Here are some relevant info:

When I switch to Windows it charges to 100% and never loses power.
