I haven't noticed any difference whether I have a card in it or not.

I urge you to try to "topping off" method I mention above. As I said, it has overcome the problem on the 2 Touches I have had. It is a pain to have to do that, of course, but it does work. Topping off with the computer (tethered) seems to work better than topping off with the charger. I have never had the Touch continue to drain quickly after I have topped it off with the computer from say about 85-90% back up to 100.

The reason I have been using this technique of charging it to 100% in the afternoon and then let it sleep all night and then checking it in the morning, is so that I'll know if it finally fixes itself. If it is down to 88 or 90% in the morning I know I have to top it off. So far, I have had to do this, but after doing so I get about 1 month of usage without any draining problem till the next go around.
