I'm running off a SD card too and with bluetooth on and wi-fi connected 
to AP it lasts couple of days.

Apart from something you installed (some home screen or status bar 
applet?) there is this metalayer-crawler that can get stuck when 
indexing card, there is also getty respawning bug 
https://maemo.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=1222 but still it is probably 
something else as the first one probably drains battery faster and the 
getty bug slower. Nothing suspicious in kernel log?
