Am I the only one experiencing a larger than normal drop in battery life with 10.5.7?

My MBA RevB was plugged in all evening last night - fully charged. I stuck it in my backpack to take with me today and when I opened it up - the battery said 88% Charged. Where'd my 12% go? It can't take *that* much power to keep the machine asleep!

I'm also 99% sure there wasn't this much drain during sleep with 10.5.6. :(

Anyone else experiencing the same thing?

Very likely what happened is that your MBA got "woken up" by a jolt somewhere along the line and then went back to sleep after (however long you've set for it to sleep on battery). This happens more often than people realise.

And for those who doesn't know. disconnecting a bluetooth device wakes up the computer.

Battery seems fine with 10.5.7 on my 1st gen MBA.

This would make sense if this has only happened once... but this happens quite frequently... Hmm, guess I'll google around and see if others are experiencing these problems.
