    I'm using Hekate CTCaer with AutoRCM (installed by ChoiDujourNX), I noticed the battery drains even I select "turn off" in CFW. I saw some discussions in the forum saying that to stop draining, must turn off Swtich from the CFW loader OR stop using AutoRCM, is this still the current situation? Is there any workaround? Thanks.

    Well, why turn it off at all?

    That just means you need to re-exploit.

    If AutoRCM is uninstalled, the battery won't be drained after turning off from CFW?

    When you turn off an AutoRCM'd Switch using Horizon's power off option, it likes to turn itself back on after 10-20 seconds. Except since it goes into RCM, it's just a black screen, so you can't tell it's on.

    The most reliable way to turn it off is to choose "power off" from Hekate.

    Or just never turn it off like most people, leave it in sleep mode in the dock when you're not using it. I do this and I've never had any problems ever.

    Correct, but you would burn fuses if you accidentally boot without it (idk why you have it, so might not be your case). And if your force shutdown the switch or turn it off from hekate, it will be ok too.

    AutoRCM doesn't drain battery; people who believe turning the console off from Horizon drains battery because it actually just reboots into RCM which drains battery at about 5% per hour. And because AutoRCM is installed, the console doesn't charge as well so it still gains a net negative charge.
