    Idle, without me touching the phone:
    -Battery Saver Disabled
    -Cellular & WiFi ON
    -Not Locked
    -Twitter & Facebook set to update every 2 hours
    -SmartWiFi running in the Background

    This is 7:30am to 1:00pm today, and my battery indicator is still full.

    Drain is 0.94% per hour.

    It seems that it does something on standy mode, look at this graph, where I left the phone alone for a bit(I was driving) the graph really levels out. You can see it clearly in the middle and at the end

    I woke up this morning at 7:30am pulled it off the charger, started the BB battery test and when I came back at 1:00pm it was drained less than one percent per hour.

    My Cellular & WiFi signals are both full strength. Seems pretty damm good to me.

    Here are some screenshots: the drain has changed to 1.47 since I began using the phone.

    It's been good on my 9900. About 6 hours uptime today; I'm at 78%, drain rate 3.55%/hour. That's with several phone calls, a lot of emails, some RSS feed refreshes and reading, and a half hour of Kindle reading. The Kindle reading is significant, since it keeps the screen lit up continuously. I doubt that the OS changes battery consumption for that, but the overall drain rate is better than I'd expect, so it's clearly about what's (not) happening when the phone is idling.

    My battery output is pretty much 10% but I'm not sure why
