Thank you very much for your response.
I checked my screen brightness and it was on 100, I have now reduced it to 60. Don't think that was the issue.
As for bbm, I don't always use it, but it runs in the background. I don't always receive pings, but the software is always checking for contact updates. Could that be an issue?
As I am writing this my battery has lost about 10-15 % in about 20 min...
Seems to me like there could be a hardware fault - will have it checked out.
I also have another battery, so I will make sure its not a battery fault.
Have also checked the article u talked about. Thanks!
