Default Samsung Transform Ultra - Android System uses 80+% of Battery Life???

Hey, i purchased the Samsung Transform Ultra from Boost mobile a few months ago. I really like the device, minus the excessive battery drain. The phone is usually dead by noon (work starts at 6:30am) with light-medium use. My previous phone the Incredible 1 would at least last 12 hours with light-medium use. I get roughly 2-4 bars of signal inside at work... Anyways, I looked at the battery usage and it shows that 82% of the battery is used by the Android System. Other phones I've used show this at below 10%. Anyone have any insight as to why this is showing this.

FYI, I recently factory reset my phone and I was only using it today to run the initial setup and send a few text messages, so I don't think its caused by a process hog app. Anyone have an insight as to why the Android system is using so much of the battery? Also it seems to take longer than other Android devices to charge (compared to other devices with same battery capacities).

Thanks
