If I leave it alone at that point, it will continue to lose charge at about 25-30% each day, till it gets down to about 25% in 3 days, at which point I have to recharge it. It always does this if I just leave it alone. Very frustrating! The very minor extra step of topping it off with the computer after that first overnight drop to about 88% stops the drain in its tracks and it behaves normally from then on. Weird or what?

Have you ever tried this that I found on the B&N comment thread

Try charging your Nook in sleep mode (for 3-4 hours). After charging, completely shut down the nook, then power it back up. This is the only thing that's worked for me.
It might be worth trying that the next few times that you need to recharge, it's simple to do and only takes a minute or two to power up again.
