Question about JB-5 batteries...

Hi guys,

I'm wondering if I'm the only one having this issue. I've got a JB-5 I bought about 6 months back that's exhibiting some odd behaviour; my battery goes flat when I don't use it for a few days. If I leave my jetbook at home for say, a week, when I come back to it, the battery seems to have died. I have to charge it for roughly 8 hours (!!) to get a full charge into it, and then it restarts as if I hit the reset button. Is this normal, or did mine develop some weird issue?
If it helps, I read all my books off of the SD card (which I know reduces battery life some), and I tend to leave my jetbook on whatever page of the last book I was reading.
Am I hitting some barely-documented sleep mode or something?

Thanks in advance.
