    Here's a good one. On waking the phone, I found that the battery had drained from 100% to 3% overnight. 3%! Do you believe? In fact, the phone had actually powered off to protect the battery. In the battery usage stats, Internet Explorer was shown to be the culprit, at 100% of the charge used....7% foreground, and 93% background....the app that, just the day before, I had set NOT to run in the background. An app which I can't uninstall, and about which I'm unable to do more than I've already done to prevent it draining.
    That is a PRETTY good one you've got to agree.

    do you have it set to sync (favorites, etc.) with your other devices ?

    If it can't connect, it will continue to poll (e.g. I put my device in airplane mode, overnight) or was it left OPEN in the background.
    Try to soft reset your device, see if that fixes anything.

    In addition, a good rule to follow (to avoid anomalies) is to Power OFF the device, once a week! That will fix a lot of stuff

    IE drains a lot here, but not that much. Just make sure to close all apps with Return key.

    Thx for replies. Correct methods followed by me so far as I can think. Perhaps after setting IE to not run in background, I ought to have rebooted for it to take effect. Who knows. In future I'll be Powering Off or using Airplane Mode overnight.

    I always leave it on the charger overnight. That way I cannot be surprised in the morning.

    Excuse the tardy reply miodrage. I did compose a reply earlier but when I pressed Send, was told that the action was not permitted and that I did not exist. Ho-hum, smartphonery, it can be tiresome.
    Yes, your overnight charging is a good ploy, but I would be worried about the phone deciding to do something endlessly....syncing or searching or something, and overheating.
    I powered off three of my devices last night and was pleased to see on waking them that they'd lost no charge....in fact, one had gained a percent or two.

    Belodion: every1 is allowed to do whatever one wants with its device... Also, I am a guy who is used to press back like ten times in a sec, so am not particularly worried about some BG process.

    Funny, I had the same issue last night. Went from 51% to 3% over night. I have location services off to save battery. Recently I installed the new Gestures Beta, maybe its related to that?

    But I have had the same thing with my old 820, so I am thinking it may be a firmware (Cyan) issue.

    Hmm I've had the same issue on DP. but for me Outlook was having 95% background battery drain overnight, something that NEVER happened to me on any device. I've reflashed my 1020 with a german ROM and avoided DP and now seems to work just fine.

    There is a possible clue in my case, although I doubt that it's relevant. In IE I had looked up a type of car, and in the web page there was a link to a YouTube clip of it, so I opened it. Afterwards I closed by using the back button and tapping the X. Only some time after the next morning's battery drain did I happen to scroll down on the Start screen and notice a new tile at the bottom....I must somehow have unknowingly pinned it. I made a screenshot of it and here's the relevant part.
    Of course I unpinned it afterwards....I don't know what happened to it, it's nowhere among the list of app tiles. I already have a proper YouTube tile.
