General Bluetooth eating up battery life in standby?!

    For some reason, which I can't figure out yet, when I go to Settings -> About -> Battery and look at usage, my cell standby is always highest which is fine but Bluetooth is always #2! I'm talking on average it's always 25% or close to that.

    This seems odd because it's just on, not connected to anything. If I turn off Bluetooth it immediately drops (obviously) so it just seems that for some reason the Bluetooth on this phone eats battery life like no tomorrow. What's stranger is WiFi (which I leave on 24/7) hardly goes above 10%.

    Very odd. Anybody notice the same? I guess I just have to get into habit of turning off BT when I'm not using it.

    I feel like that battery guage reporter is often wrong. Yesterday, it told me Hardcopy was taking up 90% of battery with 13 seconds of CPU time. I literally turned on the app for about 30 seconds and I only have 2 or 3 articles on there.
