    Seems to have started recently. With a fully charged battery, turning phone off at night so I can sleep, disconnected from power source so no power going to it, battery has lost 80% in 8 hours, when turned on in the morning. Also, phone seems to be consuming more power than before.

    Anyone else having similar problem? The chip is 80% full of videos and photos, 3 month old replacement phone, using task manager app.

    Put it on silent mode and keep it plugged in all night. Problem solved.

    If you're rooted I would wipe the battery stats... make sure your at 100% charged when you do it.

    That's a ridiculous amount of power loss... I barely lose 10% overnight on my OG unplugged. Either some service is running loose that's draining your battery or your battery is faulty... that's all I got.

    Same thing happens to my thunderbolt but even when plugged in:
    --screen off
    --nothing (i'm aware of) running
    --volume on mute
    --factory phone, have had for several months, apps installed, then alot uninstalled
    --PLUGGED INTO FACTORY charger
    --phone dead in morning

    something not right

    --so i unplug, then replug phone, finally orange light comes on, charge up for a few min, then can finally turn on phone

    ugh

    It sounds like you may be 'sync'ing several high drain applications, such as facebook, twitter, weather, etc. I found that when these are set to sync every 15 minutes it depletes the battery overnight.

    The OP said that he had the phone turned off... how could the high-capacity syncs be happening at all? I see this same phenomenon occasionally.... Last night I was at 40% so I *shut the phone down*. When I turned it on THIS morning, it was at 5%!!! How can that be??? I'd sure love an explanation on THAT!
