Default Rooted phone drains battery!

I tried to root my U8800 so that i could use it as a wifi hotspot, after having installed superboot I tried to use different wifi tethering apps without any luck. And after rooting it, my phone drains the battery in 5 hours or so!

Does anyone know the solution to one or both of these problems?

Go to settings/ about Phone/ Battery usage

Thsi will give you a report on what's chewing up your power.

Rooting the phone doesn't cause power drain.

The new power drain is caused by an app or a system setting and you will have to figure it out because at this stage you havenpt provided enough information to form a possible solution.
