battery still drains after shutting down the laptop

hi,

my dell inspiron i3 battery still drains when I shut down the machine using the Power "shut down" option in windows 10.

after i'm done using the laptop and turn it off using the shut down option. it either I see a red light indicating low battery or the machine won't turn On at all because it has run out of battery and I need to connect the charger

Disable fast boot:

Once that's done, Windows 10 will shut down rather than hibernate. 

If that doesn't solve the issue, it may be time for a new battery.
