VAIO VGNTZ150N Laptop battery runs down when not in use

I have a laptop laptop that is about 6 months old. The battery runs down about 10% per day when the computer is off. I can charge it up completely and when i turn it back on 4-5 days later the battery is down to 50% or so. It does not run down if i remove the battery from the computer, the battery holds its charge when not installed in the computer. The life of the battery seems to be about 4-5 hours when fully charged and the laptop is in use on battery only so i think the laptop is using up the battery even when off. Is this normal?
thanks

If the laptop is gone into a suspended mode it is still powered on but sleeping. This will continue to use power and will power down the battery over time.

You could enable hibernation which saves the current state of your pc so that when you activate it again it restores to your previous state of work. This will use close to no battery power to perform.

After 8 days of no life at all in the laptop , having 2 computer technicians around saying it was probably the motherboard and just about to send to Sony I pressed the power button and hey presto it worked again..Guess it was just sleeping or hibernating...after all it is spring now....Actually one guy of the many forums I have visited advised just to leave the Laptop alone and perhaps it would mend itself..and hey presto he was right, although having said that I have yet to turn the laptop off and startup again..HMMMMMMM...
