BYEOS shutdown step order questions

Question

I use a Canon T6 with original Canon battery, 3 yrs old, BYEOS 3.1.13, and Windows 8.1.

My normal shutdown procedure is

1. In BYEOS, click "disconnect" from the camera.

2. Turn off camera

3. Disconnect the USB cable.

Recently, I noticed my battery still showed 100% charge on the back of the camera, and then I shutdown using step 1, step 3, and then step 2.

Overnight, my camera battery totally discharged.

Doing things in the normal 1, 2, 3 order since, and the battery holds its charge nicely 2 days and counting.

Does the 1, 3, 2 shutdown order explain the dead battery?

What is the correct shutdown order?

Or is it likely my battery is just showing its age?

Thanks!

Steve

I think the battery may be showing it's age.

BYE does not really care how you disconnect your camera from the software.  Ideally you would do step #1 and after that it does not make any difference. 

EDIT:  BYE does not draw any power from the camera, it merely tries to report the battery status and it is very vague as to how Canon really provides this value.  All power is drawn by the camera itself.  Could it be that you inadvertently forgot to actually shut down the camera overnight?

Regards,
