I am 98% sure it was off. I also had another alarming drainage rate
story. Last Sunday, I had the unit, which I thought should be almost
charged (I hadn't charged it since the day before, but I only had about
2 hours of play time on that charge.) I had it in the car, and after a
lockup (the car was sitting still in a parking lot), I checked the
battery level, and was mildly surprised that it was at 36%. I ran some
errands, getting gas, and a couple of other things, maybe 4 or 5 songs,
and checked the battery again, and it was down to 25%.
