Could you try taking out both memory cards, disabling all Home applets,
putting the device to offline mode, rebooting, charging the battery full
and checking how much battery is left after device is idle for one day
on table (so that nothing presses the keys or touchscreen)?

Ssh hasn't been a problem for me.

In my case the device battery went down in about a day when being idle
because the fm-radio applet was polling constantly at about 1 sec
interval.  Maybe something in your system is also waking at that
kind of frequency?
