I've seen a few other posts about this. It seems like if there is a process using the Nvidia GPU when you activate Eco then it stays powered and you don't get the full benefit. Some people have been resorting to restarting Windows to clear active processes and re-enabling Eco. I'm not sure if there is a way to tell what process is holding things up.
For offline battery drain I would check the BIOS and make sure no options for USB charging are enabled. If the machine is off and you can plug a phone into it and start charging then that means some stuff has to stay awake and use power even when on standby.
EDIT: Yes, Albert is right you do have to *activate* Eco mode. I didn't ask if your 4hr number was in Eco.

Thanks for replying.
The 4 hour battery life can be obtained in eco with battery saver on, I'm not using the dGPU for any task on battery.
Also, the machine was shut down properly (shift+shutdown) , yet it drained to depletion.
I've sent it in for repairs, hoping that the battery would register as faulty and they'd replace it.
