    The way Apple designed the OS on these devices, apps CAN'T run in the background. That's why today, you can't run AIM and another app at the same time. This is done by design to prevent the exact issue you are describing...

    Just curious, when you leave the phone on that desk, how many bars does the phone get? I'm wondering if it's getting a borderline signal and is having to 'reconnect' to the network multiple times, thus draining the battery at a higher rate?

    Gotcha...not sure what it is then...

    Not sure what it was when I put it down that night, but I'm getting 5 bars now on it on the same desk...

    Maybe that was the case that night though...
