The best batteries on the market are the Energizer Lithium AA cells. There are 2 types, but the Ultimate Lithium are the top drawer batteries. A bit pricey, but because they last so long, you really do save money (and frustration) in the long run.

I'm afraid that problem is a common one with touch screen cameras. I recommend trying:
1.) Ensuring the battery is fully charged 2.) If battery is fully charged and it still isn't working, remove the battery from the camera for at least 24 hours. This ensures that all electricity has drained from all the circuits and allows it to fully reset.
If neither of those work, unfortunately it most likely needs to be repaired. If you don't have warranty on the camera, repairs can be costly and not a economically sensible option.
There's always a small amount of drain on the battery for the ECM, alarm, etc, but if draining bad within 24 hours you either have something live not wired correctly and drawing or possible short of a positive. An ASD relay that shuts off the car in case of a wreck or ECM tells it can go bad and lock into giving power to the engine nonstop and will drain that fast. Overnight it wont start the next day. This relay might also be called MFI. It has an always live 12v on one part even when car is turned off.
You have an older camera, so your battery is probably getting worn down. How much of a charge does your battery hold? Batteries often lose some of their charge after sitting for a bit, and it's possible that it holds such a little charge that the charge lost while sitting is enough to drain it completely. If this came out of nowhere, because batteries lose capacity gradually, then it's a defect with the battery. Either way, the only way to solve this problem is to get a new battery. Considering the fact that your camera seems pretty nice, it's probably worth the money. I don't know of any places off hand that carry your specific battery, but some good places to look are Amazon and B&H, or even Nikon themselves. Hope this helps, good luck to you.
this problem can be caused by many factors. Use of the phone can drain battery life for example if you use the phone for browsing the web or as an mp3 player, even to make or recieve calls the battery life will not be as long as it would if just on standby. also if the battery hasn't been conditioned or is being over charged this can also lead to short battery life.To resolve the problem try conditioning th battery, basically let the charge drain completely out of the phone until the phone actually switches off, then charge the phone for 24 hours. Next time the battery goes ded only charge for the recommended charging time (this info can be found either in your phone user guide or by contacting the customer service department of your network provider).
