Hi, I just got a nexus 7 (its been a month now) when the device is on standby it drains all the battery, in fact it only lasts 6h. In the battery usage, all there is is 'tablet idle' and 'WiFi'.
Till now I have tried clearing the cache partition, restoring factory defaults (more than once) and even signing in with a different user after factory defaults, nothing helps!

I managed to get proper battery usage maybe once or twice.

When this happens the top right part of the tablet gets really hot!

Any clues? Should I return it back to the US?

man it could be anything....more than likely though you have a rogue app that likes to kill your battery. The best thing to do is go through your apps, and delete them one by one to see if you can pinpoint the app that is hogging the battery.

After some 2 months the issue is back!! I installed no new apps since the time I said it was sorted. I have also tried to boot in safe mode but even in safe mode the battery drains in a matter of hours
