Hmmm... good point - I've noticed that only once on my FR - after a
couple of days **shut down**, I powered it on to find that the battery
was nearly totally discharged; got me into a bit of a panic 'cos the
phone abruptly powered off and I hoped I wouldn't have to go

You;re probably using the phone a lot more, so have encountered this
issue more often - I didn't really pay attention because it seemed
like a one-off to me.

Well, let me add +1 to your query, then :-)
