Like aiharkness said, "hold the menu button down" to see what's running in the background.

UberTwitter was always notorious for running in the background (#1 reason why I removed it).

If it happened just all of the sudden I would retrace your steps to see if there is a new app installed or maybe you decided to start using NFL Mobile, etc.

Also, Bluetooth. Since a lot of the new GPS units have Bluetooth, it's worth mentioning if you have them paired. The battery will drain significantly when connected via bluetooth.

Good luck!
