    It runs in the background waiting for a call.

    Whilst I've not had it use 37%, it does seem to consume more juice than it needs to.

    You can either force stop it via Settings -> Apps -> All -> Skype -> Force Stop

    You'll probably need to force stop it after every reboot too.

    The battery chart shows you what's drained your battery since last charge, not what's currently draining your battery.

    If you reboot, charge fully, then force stop Skype, that should clear it.
