Something is killing my laptop's battery life. How can my laptop be using 30W when idling?

It used to do around 10W before.

@Ste1lar I think it is coming from the CPU. It keeps throttling as if it was under high use.

And this laptop is less than half a year old and equipped with an SSD.

@Ste1lar I found the problem. It looked like the mere fact that the Nvidia driver was installed caused a huge drain on the battery.

Even when not running an xorg session!
