GH1 poor battery life

I've been playing around with my new GH1, mainly navigating through the menus, checking AF, testing the EVF, etc., maybe 1 to 2 hours a day (max), and after 2 or 3 days the battery is GONE.

I have configured the Power Saving to 15 sec the display and 2 min the whole camera.

Am I doing something wrong ?, I used to do the same with my former Pentax K-7 for weeks before the battery will be dead.

Comments, suggestions ?, thanks

The manual tells what to expect for the battery life. I think it said about 2 hours....but I'm not going to re-read it to verify.
