Default Dismal battery life?

Need to find what's keeping my phone awake and sucking the life out of it.

So I have my Elite set up pretty much the way I had my V with using the same widgets on my home screens.
I know that widgets can suck battery power to use, but never really had issues with the battery life on the V. Iím noticing poor battery life with the Elite, so I need to change my ways and have some questions.
I use Application Folder to create widgets on my home screen with shortcuts to my apps inside I frequently use. I use Go Launcher, which can create folders on the home screens. My question is this; Do the folders created on the home screen use battery the same as widgets?

On the Elite after 9hrs 31m I have 20% battery left.

The V after unplugging in the morning at 4:30AM till I plugged it in when I went to bed around 11:30PM typically had at least 40% battery left.

I uninstalled the Application Folder app and tried changing some settings, rebooted and so far the phone looks to be sucking the battery just as hard....
I'll be able to tell better tomorrow.

Still using Widget Locker and BW on the phone....

Hows the battery holding up for everyone else?
