It wasn't a problem the first week or so after the update, I haven't installed any new apps, and I've never used WidgetLocker on this phone.
So, I figure maybe the battery is going bad, so ordered a new one from Seidio. Hopefully, that's all it is. I'll probably do a complete wipe/reinstall of the phone with the new battery.
1. Your phone and battery are still under warranty... If the battery is going bad, Sprint/Motorola will replace it. They might even let you keep yours if you ask really nicely
2. I think there's a problem with the current (198_6) build. If you're the adventurous type, you can install 198_7 from xda developers, which really improved my battery life. I started a thread about it a few days ago.
