    I have been charging my phone at night and then unplugging it when it is fully charged and putting it on stand by, and then not checking it until the following morning when I would get to work.

    On the first day I had this:
    8 Hrs 44 Min Usage
    10 Hrs 24 Min Standby

    On the next day:
    9 Hrs 12 Min Usage
    10 Hrs 48 Min Standby

    The next night the phone froze and I had to reset it, the numbers in the morning were:
    22 min Usage
    9 Hr 38 Min Standby

    The last day is more what I would expect to see, and the reset must have cleared something, but what do you think may have been stuck causing the crazy usage numbers the previous days when the phone was in standby?

    I had 3G off as there is no coverage in my area, Wifi off during that time, location services off, and push on.

    ipod music running with volume turned down? Ipod music counts towards usage and can run in the background while using other apps. Just a guess.

    Thanks - I did check that the iPod wasn't running.

    I am stumped as to what was causing the usage to be so high even though I didn't use the phone at all during that time.

    same issue here. Not sure what is causing the high usage numbers

    It's probably one of your apps, some can run in the background as long as you don't open another. To be safe hold the home button to force quite apps after you've finished with them.
