I plan to get a D50 in the next week or two, but I was wondering if the battery drains (significantly) when the camera is turned off. If it sits idle for weeks (highly unlikely), will it still have the same charge?

I'm asking because one of my digital cameras uses AA batteries and if I let it sit for a day, it has run the batteries dry. With everything turned off.
