Anyone else experience a notification causing big battery drainage? I had my phone on wifi yesterday and it was sipping power as usual. I got an email at my Gmail account at about 3:15 that I didn't see until 10:30. In that time the battery dropped about 22% in 7 hours, whereas before I got the message and after I cleared the notification it only dropped about 1% every 4-8 hours. As far as I can tell no other applications were running. So does the notification light really use up that much juice (surely not) or is there something else going on?
