My 8700 normally last 4 days with moderate usage, but when I had Cingular network problems it drain in about 12 hours. My problem was 3rd party apps (bbweather and Yak-on) were constantly trying to connect when Cingular has disabled my account. This could happen if you are in a weak signal area too, not just 3rd party apps, but the BB itself trying to seach once your signal is dropped.
By pulling the battery, you may just be closing all the apps which fixes the problem.
Other points, like leaving the BB out of the holster, proper charging, etc. have already covered.
