whats the problem? it shows screen usage super high on idle !?
...there is a million reason for battery leak like that "could be software or hardware"
... go HERE
and download the excellent app BBS (Better Battery Status) to report which app is exactly eating your battery "note that download section is in the second post of BBS thread"
also there is known bug in Atrix 2 "and old RAZR I guess" which report a fake screen consumption and push it to the top consumers "it doesn't matter if you have a hardware black dots problem or not" so those black dots are not the battery problem.....BTW here is a great way to solve your LCD and get rid of those black pixels HERE
Another great solution
.....reboot your phone in safe mode "which means that no downloaded apps will run in background" only the sock apps will run normally How to do that (( just press the power button until you see the "Power Off" dialog then press and hold "Power off" option until you see a message asking you to reboot in safe mode press yes and voila )) if you want to load apps again and back to normal just restart as normal again
then wait and see if the battery still drains that fast or not
NOTE: I'm not really sure that safe mode feature exist on ICS 4.0.4 or not! as I'm on 4.4 kitkat along time ago :
