could be this, i have a hotmail and gmail account setup on my email, the gmails fine but somethign interesting happens EVERY time with my hotmail accoutns on pre3 and touchpad, after a good few months the hotmail accounts seem to jump to some weirdass/wrong password, causing them to attempt LOTS of false login attempts, then i find logging into hotmail via a pc through a nomal webpage i get told that my password needs reset due to a ton of bad logins.

POP and deleting downloaded messages
If you use POP to download Hotmail messages to another program, that program could make it so you can't read your messages on Hotmail. (For example, this might happen if you use Mac Mail or Mozilla Thunderbird).
1) Don't let another program delete messages from Hotmail. (If your other program is set to "delete messages from the server," we'll simply move them to a special POP folder. They won't be deleted.)
2) Do what my other program says-if it says to delete messages, then delete them.
once i reset password via normal pc/webpage, my webos account then works again np, well for a few months then its somehow back to using the wrong password again and i have to go through the process again.
All those repeated failed attempts at logins cant be good tho, might be the cause of some of my battery loss now and then, might just chuck the hotmail account away and stick to gmail, it works perfectly.
your definatly right tho, with your phone doing nothing there shouldnt be a huge powerdrain unless you have the phone ON in a place with a terrible signal, which i do in my house so the phone only gets turned on infrequently and auto turns off at night when im asleep.
also make sure your availability is set to "offline" or "unavailable" in the chat/messaging app, it also eats battery.
