I have a 8800 and would like to know if anyone else is experiencing the unique behavior of my unit. If I leave it on, the battery drains slowly overnight - the unit might use 3-5% of its battery availability, but if I use the Auto On/Off feature and let the phone go off for 8 hours, it will drain 50% of its battery while off. I have refreshed the unit to the latest firmware available from Rogers wireless and am also using the latest desktop software, and have no third party apps.
Any thoughts or suggestions?

Sounds like there might be a bug in the verion of the OS on your device. I would recommend upgrading the OS and seeing if that resolves the problem.

That's a good suggestion - and I've actually already done that. That's how I had the option not to install messenger. At this point, I'm confident that the problem isn't related to anything that I am doing with my unit, or anything that I've installed on my unit, but I am curious to learn if anyone else has experienced the same issue. If there is a bug in the version of the OS, then I would expect a lot more Rogers subscribers to have the same problem.
Leaving the unit on does provide me with great battery life - drained about 25% over a 3 day weekend, but it still bothers me that I can't turn it off without discharging the battery.
