    This thread really only applies to the older versions of Android... They have since resolved this issue and changed how the system stores and reads the wallpaper... If you post those screenshots hosted elsewhere we might be able to tell you more but they are just way to small to read

    Could be any number of many many different things. Get something like gsam, or better battery stats and use that to investigate the battery drain. Usually it's a rogue app that always has background processes running...

    There are a lot of factors that can contribute... Can you give some usage stats... You can find them under the Battery section in Settings.... Screen on time, radio usage, how often things are syncing and updating...... Android changed how a wallpaper is "stored" and "referenced" with the Gingerbread build I believe..... Hence why you can now delete the image you are using as a wallpaper and the wallpaper will not be affected.... In the first builds of Android if you deleted the image that was being used as the wallpaper it would no longer display that as the wallpaper....
