turn auto brightness off. You'll have to search in powersettings for fastboot and then that off. it works for me as i found the battery stats kept going crazy. turn intenet on when you need it. used black wallpapers. download juice defender.

also give the battery a week to optimize and also if you really need auto sync then adjust the syncing times. do you really need facebook and mail every 10 mins? etc if these things dont change you may have bad battery. twice a day is alot.

If your sensation is rooted and you flash roms, i would suggest flashing the Once v103z rom, i get the best battery life i ever have with it and i have tried a lot of roms. Also you can flash a newer firmware, that will give you better battery life as well.
