I wouldn't say it was totally abnormal. 10% in 10 hours on standby?

Not sure, I wouldn't call that "quick" since it's 1% per hour.

I would say that it loses battery life significantly faster then other laptops I have owned.

My battery is doing great even after a year and more than 200 cycles (something between 2.5 to 3 hs), but it was always a hungry machine while asleep.
