Locking the keypad when carrying the device will prevent an accidental key press from activating the display. That will prevent undue power use.
Also take a look at the third party and add-on apps you have running all the time, and particularly those that are hitting the network all the time. Think facebook, twitter, any navigation apps, and that sort of stuff. Absolutely close everything except the core apps that run all the time, and set the update period to the max (hours instead of minutes) on the add-on apps that can't be fully closed either, and watch for 24 hours and see what happens.
