Realized that many people are googling this and finding this post. i will give an update on the issue.
– start latest 16 sept 2010 update –
The “solution” posted below didnt 100% solve it for me. battery life improved (not 1% drain per 3mins but 1% drain per 15mins) but not to pre 4.1 levels.
i got fed up and did a restore without using backup. You can find that option in itunes. After that i synced it with my itunes for songs apps etc and now it works fine.
I hear mixed results from this. but do give it a try or 2.
My phone can now last for at least 1.5-2 days on medium usage.

When i updated to 4.1 the battery drain was insane! My phone was 50% to 10% in 2 hours.
I had a search around the net and found some talk on the apple forums.
This is the solution for me…
- Launch game center and log off (sign out of your game center account and press the middle button after)
- Do a hard reset (press the top and bottom button together and hold it there for 20s till the apple logo appears)
Worked like a charm

A bit more information. I have an app MemoryInfo which shows the running processes. I have found that gamesd and another games process was running. I started the games app, logged out of the account, restarted and no gamesd is running.
I have skype installed but not running and it has a demon process but not sure what for.
I’ll charge the phone back up and see what happens.
So we are quitting the game center process!
