I seem to have this problem intermittently.. I'm not sure what the variables are. I had to run the webos doctor for some other issues, and after that the battery started lasting a LOT longer. I didn't realize that the previous battery drain was unusual. For 2 or 3 days the battery life was excellent, battery monitor showed only 2.something for drain per hour, and only a little bit higher while progrmas were running. Then, the battery issues came back.
I just pulled the battery and restarted, and battery monitor is showing around 12.something for drain per hour, with nothing running except battery monitor. For the first minute or so it was around 33-34, then slowly dropped to 15, now is hovering in the 12's.
I'm not sure if this has anything to do with the sleep/wake problems (although govnah typically shows the lowest value around -80 after the phone screen has been off, so I'm guessing I have that problem too at least some of the time), I'm more concerned about what is using up all the battery while the phone is awake. Nothing is running!
Also, if I have wifi on while I'm at work, the battery drains to under 10% by 3pm (from 8:30). I thought wifi was supposed to save battery? Apparently not at my office, though.. maybe the wifi keeps going in and out, forcing the phone to keep reconnecting. I've tried with data off and wifi on, and vice versa.. battery definitely lasts a lot longer with wifi off, whether data is on or not.
