WTF?

How can a sleep cover cause such problems? I know the Kobo was sleeping when the cover was closed - the light went off and it was obviously sleeping when I'd open it.
Looking back over the thread, I'm surprised that no one suggested removing the cover. The closest was a suggestion to swap covers with your wife.

There could be problem with the cover if the magnet was a little out of place or weaker than it should be. Another common problem is something in the environment is interfering with. If you are putting it down in the same place all the time this could be it. Either could the device go into a wake/sleep cycle. Or simply not sleep. When you close the cover, it sleeps, but it gets interrupted when you put it down.

I tend to agree with you here. If you can't upload a few books without using half your battery, something is definitely not right.

I don't have a Clara, but I have its near hardware cousin, a Tolino Shine 3, and I haven't been impressed with its battery life either. Not nearly as bad as yours, but it doesn't match the other Tolinos (pre-Kobo Vision and Shine).

The Kwmobile cover as seen here:

Looking over the reviews it appears I'm not the only person that has seen draining issues with this sleep cover. Kind of a shame as it's actually really nice, outside of causing the reader to go dead in a matter of days.

Ever since removing the book from it's cover the issue has disappeared. I reloaded everything then deliberately kept it sleeping for a few days, only waking it to check the battery, and it's still at 99%, so it was the cover all along.

Which is annoying 'cause if I'd just checked that first I would've saved myself a lot of hassle.

Thanks everybody for the suggestions anyway, I appreciated all the offers of help!

I'd suggest swapping the cover with your wife to check. That will help make sure if is the cover or the device. I would also check that the cover lines up properly. I've had some covers that worked perfectly when new, but, as they got older the "hinge" stretched and the front didn't always align properly and the device didn't sleep.

I bought a similar type of cover (without the stand) for my H2O and the magnets did not line up properly. It went back ASAP.

And I do agree that you should try your wife's cover. If you find it's still draining, just turn off the sleep cover function in the settings. In settings, it's in Energy saving and privacy under Sleepcover.
