My wife is getting remarkably bad battery performance on her Kindle Fire; I think that at least sometimes it's because some app is using wifi. I wish there was some kind of "I'm just reading a book" mode that would quiesce everything on the device not involved with reading a book.

I better defer this to our resident Android experts. However, if she has an app running that wants to use the WiFi for updating data on a regular basis (like a calendar or email app) then that can certainly drain the battery. My KFire isn't too bad, but my phone gets crazy and drains uber fast some days.
