Post your battery usage screen
Went to bed last night.. unplugged it from the charger at 97% battery.. 9hrs later when i picked it up.. my battery was in the red.. At my house i have full 5 bars of cell reception all the time..
Should my cell standby and phone idle be using up that much battery ?
*Edit, this is an EVO by the way*

Sounds like your phone isn't sleeping. Download the app spare parts and repeat the experiment. In the morning open spare parts and look at battery history choose the option for partial wake usage. If you see anything that is using more than a few minutes of partial wake usage that app is what is keeping your phone from sleeping. The phone should be able to sleep for at least 24 hours if not more without killing the battery.

yes something is eating your cpu resources. you could also install system panel, but you would need the paid version to track cpu usage over an 8 hour period. but it gives you a list of each app and what percentage of cpu each app used, and shows it on a timeline, so you can see exactly when each app was doing stuff. sounds like an app is not letting your device sleep.
i've slept with my device on for 12 hours and only lost 11%. nexus one, though. but still, that isnt normal.

are your phones lying idle? jesus i thought i was getting good life, i give my phone moderate to heavy use everyday and get around 15-17 hours of it.
streaming music, lots of btunes, lots of internet, my location on, gps off, 4g off (sometimes on for a couple min), wifi off, LOTS of text, and about an hour of calls.
but 14 hours and 90% is awesome! i want that!

After reading the suggestions to install Spare Parts, I did so, and noticed a few strange things. I had run Sprint TV this morning to watch the World Cup so in order to make sure none of that stuff was affecting what I saw in Spare Parts, I plugged the phone in and let it charge a while. I then powered it off, unplugged and restarted it. After doing a little bit of stuff in Market (installed AppBrain, uninstalled another app), I ran Spare Parts again and this was my result.
Is this normal? What is the '0'?

Edit: and wouldn't you know, I follow the instructions word for word and they DO NOT WORK.....atleast for my phone. When I hold the volume down button and hit the power button nothing happens! and I know I'm doing it right because if I hold the volume up button I get the bootloader
