This beast of a phone is my first android phone since I switched from iPhone 3gs so I have no experience with android devices.
That doesn't sound normal to me at all. I don't remember what my droid x got in sleep mode, but my galaxy nexus generally only loses about 10-15% overnight when not charging, and I consider that phone to have pretty bad battery life.
Perhaps there is an app that is preventing it from entering sleep mode. There is an app called cpu spy that will tell you if and how long your phone is entering sleep mode.
