Any battery powered device loses battery power if it is on. Phones more so, because even when they appear to be doing nothing, they're not.

Plus its a smart phone. The battery won't last a week like a cheap nokia.

To save battery, you should change sync / update intervals to bigger gaps. All your syncing that happens in the background also takes up power.

Heeey thanks dude! i changed my sync settings and turned off da background synching, but can u tell me how to change sync intervals to bigger gaps? Cheers!
