hmmm. My N800 recently  began running the battery dry in only a half day or
so; as you mention, it used to go days between charges. This began suddenly
with no change in habits or new packages having been installed. Since I
really only use the device at home and at work, I ruled out anything to do
with the whether or not the APs support WLAN Power Save Mode. As I said, it
all worked great until recently.

It is frustrating. Even if I charge overnight, I'm sure to hear the N800's
plaintive wail for the power adapter just after lunchtime. Could my battery
simply be dying? Is there any way to check?
