MyTouch Slide Battery Drain

There seems to be an issue with the MyTouch Slide causing the battery to drain extremely quickly at times (within a couple of hours). In my experience this seems to happen mostly when not connected to WiFi and when applications try to synchronize data over the 3G connection.

I tried to identify which application was responsible for this battery drain by closing them down one-by-one (using ATK). After everything was closed the battery was still draining. So I went into Settings/Applications/Manage Services and started shutting these down one by one too.

It seems that, in my case at least, the Google Talk Service was responsible for the battery drain. Shutting this service down dramatically increased my battery life. Restarting the phone brings the service back up, and a few hours later rapid battery drain begins too.
