    My battery drains while my Nexus 5 phone is turned off. It will drain completely if I leave it powered off long enough. I have tried 3 manufacture resets and it continues to drain while powered off. Is this a software problem, battery problem or hardware (phone) problem?

    Many thanks in advance.

    Welcome to AC.

    My guess is battery. See if you can get it tested.

    LiIon batteries do lose charge over time naturally. You don't at all mention the kind of time frame you're talking about. Does it drain 5% per week? 20%? 100%?

    It shouldn't drain much per week (in a few months, maybe, but not in one week). If it does, you could have a leaky capacitor on the motherboard (which normally means a new motherboard - most shops don't get into component-level replacement, because most people can't do it).

    Or, as belodion said, it could be a bad battery.
