    I have the Xbox service off, and the notifications off in Draw Something and Words With Friends. I also don't let them run in the background. Yet they somehow still receive push notifications. I'd rather not even play these games if there is no way I can keep them from being always on. Not worth the battery drain.

    Can anybody shed some light? Is this a problem with all games? What if I had 20 multiplayer games all getting push notifications at the same time? I only bring this up because after playing Draw Something last night, I went to bed, and my battery went straight to **** after being great all day. Should I reboot the phone after playing games or something?
