Properly configured is something like what the device is like when taken 
out of the retail box after buying it.. Maybe removing the location 
widget and the calendar widget from the desktops.

Then after that there are lots of things you can install and do to make 
it burn battery.

For example, if you turn off wifi power saving and connect to wifi, you'd 
go down from several days of standby, to 6 hours of standby. Also if 
your wifi access point doesn't support wifi powersaving, or has 
broken/buggy wifi powersaving. (Which is probaly why one would turn it off 
on N900) You said it happens also when not on wifi, so I guess that's the 
problem in this case.
