The fact is it is good at conserving battery until you use the other features. Then it drains like crazy in comparison.
So to get great battery life:
Turn off WiFi
Turn off mobile data
Turn off auto-sync
Turn screen to 1% (I find 0% turns the screen off!)
Turn off GPS
Turn off bluetooth
Kill all unused apps & services
Turn the screen off.
Or, you could buy a 'dumb' phone, of course! That is effectively what you are doing by this.
I'm certain the Note could do a week on standby.
Doing the things you mention above, I once managed to get my Dell Streak to last for 5 days after I left my charger at my girlfriend's house. The battery was already down to 50% when I left her house, so it lasted 5 days on half a battery!
I think the battery life on my Note is about 25% better than my Streak, so it could easily do a week...
You know, if you wanted it to
I can't think of any reason you would want it to, other than being without a charger like I was.
