Hmm, Skype and apps like that might suck quite a bit of battery,
depending on how chatty they might become in their idle states. Knowing
a bit about Skype from monitoring a large company network, especially
when it does not get a connection or an unreliable connection it tries
to connect to the next Supernode very often, at least once a minute.
Wireshark might help you to find out how "chatty" your N900 is...
If I have some time over the weekend, I could run some tests with
Wireshark and Skype/Foreca/Facebook and whatever else is usually running
on my N900 to see how often these apps actually send traffic in their
idle states.
