    Try going to settings> general> reset> reset all settings
    Then only turn on battery percentage and test out the standby

    Since you offer a fix, you know of the problem. Since you know of the problem, you know of the GIANT thread on this issue. So why post yet another separate thread?

    Why? Because single posts in GIANT threads get lost and unless a particular person reads the page IT'S ON they won't know of it

    K?!

    You guys should really try this out. My phones settings were untouched the first 2 nights and my standby drain was 2%. Then after trying to change some settings to conserve usage power I noticed it draining faster during usage, AND I lost 20% over the third night.

    I honestly believe its a software issue and if you reset to factory settings you will see your standby battery back to normal. Usage still sucks but it's not as bad. I believe that something in the settings logically should increase battery performance, but a bug is causing something to continually drain power when whatever it is gets switched off. So you get extra drain during usage and drain during standby.

    Is nobody willing to test this out and let me know if it helps their standby???

    Does this delete any data or email accounts?

    What do you mean by that? All I'm saying is the standby drain has to do with one of these settings that we all less around with when we got our new phones. Can someone with standby drain test it out?

    Battery life hasn't been horrible for me but in the name of science, I'll give it a shot.

    Well if you haven't had any issues you might not see a difference. But those who are seeing standby drain overnight it will fix that.

    No. It resets all settings in the Settings app (except for your apps' settings). No media (music, photos, videos, apps) and email accounts (including calendar, notes, reminders, etc.) are deleted.

    OMG the suspense!

    I am kind of upset that my phone regularly gets down to 30% daily and my usage is completely unchanged from my 4 (I am not even playing with Siri that much anymore, only using it when I need it). My 4 my the end of the typical day got down to no less than 60%.

    Also, I noticed that my 4 also had battery drain after I installed iOS 5. I am pretty sure a software fix/tweak is coming.

    I agree! I am tired of people trying to get everyone to post in one giant 20 page thread. Technically, this entire forum would only have maybe 12 threads TOTAL since just about every thread is just a rehash of something else. (Example: every battery thread, "should I buy an iPhone" thread, "is the iPhone better than X competitor", etc.).

    What makes forums fun is to have people respond to you, and that pretty much almost never happens if you are on page 17 on some large thread.
