Such an enormous difference cannot be the consequence of some sub-optimal
power management.  It's clearly a sign of a bug somewhere between ACPI,
BIOS, Linux, and your kpowersave daemon.

Check /proc/acpi/battery/BAT0/{state,info} at various point in time to see
how much power is left in your battery, how much is being consumed etc...
