    How much should the battery drain on sleep over say 7 hours?

    I'm losing around 10% a night with no apps open in the dock and bluetooth off.

    Does the 30 day standby only apply to the air?

    I think it's supposed to be 1% per hour on standby. Mine is the same as yours.

    That sounds about right. It uses roughly 1% of battery power for each hour of sleep.

    Standby mode only applies to MBAs and MBP retina models.
