Sometimes it gets to a state that "eats" battery very quickly when not in use. Shutting down (which, in this state often need two tries before the screen goes fully black) and rebooting seems to fix this.

Glad you brought this up. N5 just eats the battery in idle state.
Clearly our experiences differ here: if you always see what I see sometimes then figuring out why there's a difference could provide the clue needed to fix it. Either your phone is different to mine, the way you use it is different to me, or something else (the cell network?) is different. I've tried to explain how I use it in the top post - are you doing something different?
I see from the linked thread that you've tried some experimentation. Would you be up to trying some more?
First, to get a baseline that we can both reproduce:
- put into flight mode
- power off
- charge fully
- switch on
- immediately, without starting any apps, leave idle overnight (8hrs say)
- Check the battery level in system settings
If we get wildly different results, then something is different in the phone. If not, something is different in how (or where) we use it.
