    The first day I got my 920, I let it drained and did a full charge of 12hrs. I got it off the charger around 10 am, and I left it at home(cuz I was still using my old phone at that time). At the time when I got home was around 5pm, and the battery was still showing 100%. So it was about 7 hrs off charger.

    Last night, I went to bed with around 92% of battery, had everything turned off, all background tasks were blocked. And this morning I only had 45% of battery left. It was about 10 hours off charger.(Yeah, I had 10 hrs sleep, feeling great right now)

    Do you think it's normal to have such big difference? The only thing was on last night was the "battery saver, will be turned on when battery is low". And couple notifications on my live tiles. That was it. I don't see any changes would cost this drain.

    I did kill three times already. So I am assuming the first day it was telling me wrong 100%.

    I've noticed what appears to be apps or tasks constantly running in the back ground. What leads me to this belief is when my battery life is excellent the phone is cool to the touch, but when my battery life sucks the back is still warm...and this is with all applications as closed as I can get them without rebooting the phone.

    could explain the differences in battery life.

    Unused while snoozing, your battery should not be draining that much, probably not even 5%

    That's what I think it is supposed to be. I will keep an eye on the battery these days, and update.
