    Okay here's the deal. I've had my phone for a few weeks now and after power cycling it twice when I first got it I've had better battery life. I recently decided to cycle it one more time as everyone says to do it 3 times. So last night I killed it then fully charged it to 100. At full charge I unplugged the phone and went to sleep.I woke up about 9 hours later to now find my phone at 72% battery......WTF? For 9 hours of standby. Before hand I was only goin down like 7 or 8 % while I sleep. Am I screwed now?

    Nope, I was using advanced task killer and I didn't have anything running in background.

    Something like this happened to me over the last two days. Yesterday morning, I went to bed and the phone was at full charge. 6 hours later in the morning, it was at 88% (12% decrease). Went to bed that day with it at 39%, 6 hours later again and it was 37% (2% decrease) in the morning.

    Did you check to see what was draining the battery under About Phone/Battery Use?

    and/or the phone may be relearning the battery data.
