why does the Sensation 4g's battery drain so quickly?
what running software in my sensation can I turn off so that it conserves power?
The short answer is you have one of the largest screens with one of the most powerful processors in your device so that equals a lot of battery drain but here are some great tips for your battery on your sensation.

I use PowerMax and it really works to conserve my battery. I can play music for 2 hours and still show 96%.
I have a chichitec 1900mah battery and I also Downloaded the Juice Defender lite app. I was using the app with the stock battery and it was good but now its better.
What is PowerMax?
PowerMax is a battery management application you can get in the market.
One other means to conserve battery life that was not mentioned, is to go into Settings -> Location, and uncheck the "Use wireless networks" option.
You can still use your device's GPS if needed for location needs, that wireless networks option is just an additional assistance option that is not necessary. It uses power and data bandwidth, because it also is sending details about wireless networks around you to Google for their own purposes.
