    I have a feeling this may be happening to my iPhone. I left it on overnight with full battery, in the morning it still had full battery, but during the day it drained like no other.

    Do you think it is plausible that it did drain overnight, it's just the iPhone didn't "realize" till it was being used again?

    Yes.

    Also, make sure you turn off Location Services, as they will drain your battery like no other.

    I had a full battery all day today, until I rebooted, upon which I saw my true battery life, which was about half, as expected. So, it does seem like the battery meter can be inaccurate at times. Another glorious feature.

    This reminds me of a van I had rented many years ago. I drove it from L.A. to the Bay Area. Just as I was thinking I should be needing gas, I noticed the gas gauge reading about 3/4 of a tank. I tapped the gauge as I pointed it out to my friend and the needle "unstuck" and disappeared from view under the 'E.' I barely made it to the nearest gas station with the engine lurching and sputtering.

    I mean can't the iPhone accurately, and correctly show battery depletion in the battery status while it is on standby!?
