I turned off bluetooth, closed all apps, and turned of wi-fi, and let the 32gb playbook go to standby
After about an hour I lost 7%
I can't compare to the prev OS but is there an issue going on with power drain on standby for the playbook?

I did accept the video chat agreement, and clicked on every app I have to accept any agreement to be sure.
My battery is still draining very fast (5% lost per 10 min of usage (wifi, no BT))

Things I did differently since the last post:
1. Hard reset (hold down button for 10 seconds)
2. Charged the playbook all day using the INCLUDED plug
3. Checked that the video chat disclaimer was accepted
Left bluetooth and wifi on and let it go on standby.
Result: the charge holds and does not lose more than 0-1% over 2 hours.

For sure since i updated to the latest release the battery life is been cut in half. i used to be able to leave wifi and bluetooth on all the time and it would last a day, now it is half a day. the other issue is that i leave the charger that came with the playbook at the office. my regular charger that came with my Torch used to charge the playbook but now does not. last night i powered off the unit plugged it in and the battery was still 6% in the mornng. RIM you NEED to fix this! I have been very happy with the unit so far but this is bad.
anyone know how to roll back to previous OS?
