    I noticed Video Skype tries to auto log in silently, causing massive drain in background.
    When you use Messages + skype, if you notice a switch "send text / send skype" means your video Skype (NOT the old Skype with blue logo) is still logged in.
    Enter in Video Skype app, settings, log out, confirm.

    EDIT: battery better up to 30%, a whole job day, it's a little step forward

    Enter VIDEO Skype, not Skype blue logo, settings, log out, confirm. It's the only way.
    The confirm you are out is when you're typing sms, and you dont' have the switch box Send text / Send Skype anymore.
    The App Messages + Skype merges the two services since some app updates ago.

    If the auto long is the drain problem, if I am signed in, there should be no problem correct?

    Also, under Battery Saver, the background usage shows almost zero. How did u determine 30% drain?

    Right, no problem correction. Skype IS the problem till now. I determine my better 30% in real daylight use before and after . Now It's just a whole office day.

    Hmm...? I'm not quite sure what you're referring to, but this got the live tile to show the date for me.
    1. Click the "more options" icon
    2. Click "Manage Accounts"
    3. Select your email accounts
    4. It should prompt you to log back in.

    You may have to unpin and pin again. Then you should be set!

    UPDATE:

    It seems Android and iOs official Facebook app still suffers the old 20% massive drain bug, so I guess the same on Windows mobile app.

    I'll try uninstallin it
