From your description I am guessing your PE is running Dingo (Android 1.6). When I updated mine to Ermine I noticed a big improvement in power conservation with the hibernate function. Now I can close my PE and it holds the charge for days, instead of hours, and wakes up almost instantly.
Of course, maybe you already do have Ermine (Android 2.2).
