Default HELP PLEASE - battery and screen flickering problem

hi everyone!!!!

i really hope i can get some insight and help into this. i've always had some problems with my milestone 2 battery. on the first few days it lasted me for 5 hours before i started tweaking it and it's been 2 months since i bought it and my settings are as follows but can only last me 5 hours top with moderate usage and with light usage 12hours top. in the forums i see people using it heavily and still getting 24-48h HOW IS THAT POSSIBLE

display: 5%
wifi/bluetooth/gps/background data/location: switched off
network: 3G
twitter/google calendar/google contacts: manual sync
no facebook account
motoblur: skipped the registration

clock widget: retro clock
battery: battery e.t.a and circle battery (sometimes i switch them off paranoid android)
launcher: lp lite or something they removed it from the market
two screens:
- one with the clock and battery and widgetsoid (sp?)
- 11 apps

RAM taken up on the avg: 80m/499m

whenever i just check or reply a sms or whatsapp, i see the battery drop 1%. what's this!!?!

no idea how to monitor it. i downloaded spare parts before but i see it running in the background/services so i uninstalled it.
running services:
widgetsoid update service (for what?)
webroot security
watchdog lite
contactsdata (motorola)
update data and time
google seriveces framework
global unplug
battery manager
data manager service
bluetooth dun
contracts unconnected
multiling keyboard

(just checking what running services made my battery drop 1%)

task manager: omg 3rd party apps keeps popping up IT'S DRIVING ME NUTS
lp sense ui
watchdog lite
multiling keyboard
maps (I RARRRRELY USE THIS and it keeps popping up everyday)
battery .e.t.a
appbrain app market
webroot security
circle battery widget
retro clocl
no lock
remote web desktop
where's my droid

another issue:
how do i get my battery discharging velocity to go down? it's right now at 15.9 despite not using it the whole night.

side note:
i've done factory reset 2x/3x. still not really helping

screen flickering:
yesterday, while trying to access anything google. i.e. google sync or whatever, the screen would flicker like mad with lines. only stopped when i pressed home. had to reboot it in order to get rid of it
