Did you check that you have these off?
-WiFi (and/or 3G, EDGE, etc)
Also, dim the light.
When I rooted my phone, I put in CyanogenMod's ROM and it included 5 buttons:
WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS, Sync and Backlight. I turn all of those off (I don't have 3G, I use WiFi and I use my phone with the lowest backlight setting.
(Get these apps to help you from the Market. All are free unless stated.)
For the backlight, use Brightness Toggle Widget. It'll let you dim it so you can save more juice (it really makes a difference.)
For the rest, search for toggle widget. You'll find lots!
(If you'd rather pay to get them all in one pack, search for androidlet toggle widget. It's like a buck and it lets you customize.)
Now, just in case, you place a widget by doing a long press on the home screen and selecting widget. Find the one you want and place it. Hope that helps!! Anything you need, send me a message and I'll try and reply as soon as possible.
