Default Why is my battery dying when I am not even using the phone?

I understand the battery dies fast if you're using apps/games. But I didn't touch my phone, and it's dying slowly. I was at work today all day, and I didn't mess with my phone when it was fully charged, in 8 hours the battery was 35% without me even touching the phone beside turning it on to check the time or the notes I wrote in it. Yesterday i did use it a little bit, but by night time my battery was dead.

So what's the problem with this? is it the apps that sync automatically like Weather Bug, News, and Facebook? From my understanding, most apps close by themselves eventually if you're not using a task killer, so I don't think opening a lot of apps has much to do with it. Also, I have the Lookout app, it's a Virus Scan, back up contacts, and it locates the phone, it opens up often, so is that the reason for the battery dying?

Thanks in advance.

There's some battery advice in Et Cetera section of http://androidforums.com/support-troubleshooting-evo-4g/141369-how-fix-froyo.html

Also, check the radio advice using the Network app of section 3 there.

Failing that - you might want to consider a factory reset.
