Even when powered up, the static state of memory should have little/no effect of power usage. Likewise, a corrupt file may refuse to load, or load looking a little strange, but I cannot see how this effects battery life.
That's right - I agree. But loading a larger part of a file into the cache might use more power than loading a lesser part of a file into the cache. Still, you wouldn't expect it to be much -- but who knows?

It does sound like Mrs_Often just has a defective battery so it would be interesting to know if it is now operating properly.
