    When I got my iphone 4 about two months ago, I could run skype in the background and overnight the battery percentage would only change by 1-2%. Lately, my battery percentage goes down by 10-15% overnight if I leave skype running. I've tried restarts but it doesn't change anything.

    Has anyone else seen this?

    Activity of Skype through the night can affect your battery life though.

    Have you definitely changed anything else in that time, i.e. started using push email or notifications? I probably lose 10% overnight but it increased to this level when I started using push email which I don't really mind. I haven't noticed running skype making any difference to battery life but then thats probably because I have push email and push notifications running anyway

    If you don't need it on over night you could put in airplane mode maybe
