    These are not rechargeable batteries, just standard AAA. They drain quickly (within two days) even when the Palm is off.

After the batteries are used for so long they will not hold their charge. When they do this the battery needs to be replaced. Here is also a link to the palm free chat that Palm offers. They may be able to give you some more insight as to what options you may have to get it fixed. Scroll to the bottom of the page once it loads and you will see palm chat. Click on the chat now link and follow the prompts. I have always had good luck with this feature. Best wishes.

What is normal current draw with engine off, key removed, doors closed?

Ideally it should be nothing. However, given all the electronics/accessories it should not be higher than 250ma or 1/4 amp. Even this low draw will drain an unused vehicles battery in a few days

Spilled milk on Microsoft Wireless Multimedia Keyboard 1.1, turned it upside down to drain it out. Now it will not connect even after hitting reset on sensor and connect channel on keyboard. The Keyboard...

If all you did was drain it there's a bood chance that there is still residue that could be causing a short somewhere on the board. My personal suggestion is to remove the batteries, and then wash thoroughly underrunning water; then leave to dry out for at least a day preferably somewhere warm and dry. Once it's completely dry again replace the batteries and try again, if this doesn't work then there is likely permanent damage to your keyboard and you might want to get it checked out or get a replacement.

If you left the camera turned on all night, most likely you've drained the batteries. The camera does not include any charging circuitry, and does not charge the batteries via the USB connection. In fact, connecting the camera actually drains the batteries faster, since the camera has to communicate with the computer (even if it's only to say that it has nothing to say).

Optio E10 Keeps running thru batteries, I bought a new 8 pk for a field trip with my sons school, I took 5 pictures and had to change batteries, placed in anew set and it wouldn't turn on. waited about 15...

This sounds very much to me like a short circuit causing the batteries to drain so quickly. The most common cause would be moisture or water damage. Another likely cause could be a malfunction of the control circuits causing the unusual power drain. ie the camera may be continuously charging the flash.
It may be time to consider this camera has seen better days and find a replacement, unless of course it is still under a warranty.

Batteries drains quickly

I had something similar, it kept saying "battery low" after putting in new batteries. Try the Clear method; Take out one battery, hold the Clear button, while holding it insert the battery again and press on, and release. Now press clear again, turn it off and turn it back on again. If that doesn't help... well it must be something else... sorry :S

The batteries were drained in my FinePix S7000 camera whthe camera was not in use.

The CompactFlash card may have caused the batteries to drain. Some solid state CompactFlash cards consume power while inserted in the FinePix S7000 even if the camera is turned OFF. Fujifilm recommends removing the CompactFlash card when the camera is not in use. Microdrives and xD-Picture Cards do not exhibit this problem.
