    Go into settings > Accounts and sync then uncheck the 2 checkboxes on that screen there and that should help.

    You have apps using the bkgd data option. Your wifi sleep policy doesn't know about this and will turnoff wifi to save batt life when the screen is off.

    See Settings > Wireless & Networking > Wifi Settings > Menu/Advanced Settings > Wifi Sleep Policy > Select Never.

    You may see a decrease in batt life though

    Let me know if that works. i'm struggling with phantom usage now, my battery gets like 8hrs with no calls, a few emails in short - terrible
