    THIS MAKES NO SENSE.
    I can leave the 'rooted' Appeal 'ON' all day and have only a 3% to 5% battery drain when it's not in use. (Sleep)


    If I completely turn the phone 'OFF/SHUTDOWN' the battery shows a drain of 70% to 80% drain within 8 hours.


    Yesterday I charged the phone to 99% then at 2PM I completely SHUTDOWN/OFF the Appeal.
    This morning at 10AM when I turned 'ON' the phone, the battery showed 7% battery.

    I checked the standard 'About Phone/Status' as well as the app 'Battery HD Pro'. Both showed the same percentage.

    This just started a couple of days ago. I have 'Titanium Pro', and have most known battery drainers 'Frozen'.

    THIS MAKES NO SENSE.
    I can leave the 'rooted' Appeal.........

    Try download battery caliberation from da play store charge it til 100% then hit calb. Unplug it dnt charge it use it til its completly discharged then recharge it with no break
    Cus sometimes wen flashin a new ROM its recommanded to use battery calb. All it does is erase the batterystats.bin system file the OS generates a new clean battery stats file. Thus any fake information from the previous ROM is removed.

    If it doesnt help then it might be from a file or kernel

      Deeper down the rabbit hole!!!!
    try wiping battery stats in cwm, you're right though, it doesn't make sense that it would fast drain when powered off but be fine when in standby... if it just started recently as you said i suggest you examine what you've done with your phone recently maybe remove and reinsert your battery, sd card, and Sim card... try swapping the battery from the other appeal and see what happens, sounds almost like when a car has a parasitic drain... maybe a short somewhere due to condensation or failing solder joints I honestly don't know... as an experiment try pulling the battery out of the phone for the same amount of time as you left it powered off for, then reinsert the battery and see if it experiences the same drain if so then you have a faulty battery since it won't be in the phone for the phone to affect it

    I bet the battery percentage is just reading incorrectly. Watch the voltages instead.  I've had something similar happen by rebooting with the charger plugged in.

    To fix this I ran the device until it died.
    Plugged it in for 2 hours after it read 100%.
    Unplugged it and ran it until it died.
    Repeat process at least one more time.

    This has worked for me on 2 different devices...
