Life is such a drain.

My laptop battery drains even when the computer is turned off.

So, I went ahead and bought this
computer. But now I seem to have some odd behavior. The battery will lose charge even when the laptop is completely shut down. (I don't have wake-on-lan enabled.)
I have read in other forums that this is typical behavior for a Toshiba. So I some questions.
1) Is this typical behavior for a Toshiba or other brand of laptop? (My dell didn't do this.)
2) Short of removing the battery is there anything I can do to stop the drain? (Will leaving the battery out help it to drain less severely?)
3) Will this seriously erode the life of the battery (or does Toshiba provide batteries that take the behavior into account)?
