My PB will drain the battery when it is asleep (lid closed and light pulsing) Is this normal? If I don't use it in a few days the battery is dead and I have to hook up to a AC adaptor and coldboot. This is annoying!!! Anyone have any ideas?

That is normal, because the computer has to power the RAM and a few other components while it's asleep. You could just do a 'Safe Sleep' if you don't plan on using your computer for a while.
