I use to have that problem as well, and I thought I had a defective device. However, when I upgraded the phone OS to .247, I didn't have that issue again. So I don't know what OS you're running, but maybe you could look into upgrading and see if it solves it for you as well.

if running current os, wipe and reinstal.

I have had this problem from time to time with the several bolds I have had. I even had the first one replaced under warranty. It happens just occasionally, but when it does, the battery drains from full in a few hours or less. The problem will go away, and then return sometime later, usually weeks or months. Does not happen very often, but when it does, it is a real pain. Has happened on many different OS's. Most recently on .266.
Wish there was a utility to show what percent of cpu use each running process is using (like in task manager in Windows). That might help provide a clue as to what is going on.

I noticed on mine when I have heavy data usage it gets hot. I plug it into my stereo in the garage when I'm working outside and stream via pandora. I have a charger out there I plug it into as well, but notice it gets very hot.

Since I have upgraded my OS to .247, I have not had it gone hot and this is about 3 months now.

I had my bold for roughly one week when it did this. It was in the holster and I didn't notice until the phone shut completly off and wouldn't turn on or take a charge. Had to go to att and get a new battery and no problems since.

I never had the screen go hot. It happens to the battery during heavy usage.

Based on this happening to a lot of people, I highly doubt it is related to the OS.

You should upgrade for other reasons...
