This morning, dead.
Would turning it off fully make any difference?
I don't fully power off, so my guess is that it would extend battery life, but I don't know for sure. Fully powering off should NOT be necessary.
Your battery symptoms are much worse than I've experienced ... from 97% to dead overnight sounds like a bad battery or some intermittent electrical problem. If you have a local B&N store, check with them about a replacement.
If you're getting close to the end of the "free replacement" timeperiod, don't waste too much time on the "top-off" technique.
Good luck ...
