    if you aren't using wifi/gps turn them off and turn your screen brightness down.

    more extreme, turn off auto sync and background data.

    not much you can do other then that.

    you can install an app killer that'll shut down all apps that are running although your not using them

    No don't install, task killers/app killers, as they do more harm than good. The android OS handles tasks differently than an PC OS.

    As always, analyze your battery usage and address your battery hogs. If you don't provide details it's impossible to provide specific recommendations that are relevant to you.

    That will kill your battery. Not much you can do about it other than recharge, extended/spare battery or reduce your usage. It's a balancing act and you need to find what works for you. Adjusting brightness may help a bit as the screen is typically a battery hog. Again, look at your usage (start with battery info screen) and go from there.

    GPS does not chew through batteries unless it is actively used (not just turned on).

    WiFi will actually use less battery per packet of data transferred.
