Morris outlined a good problem-solving approach, in terms of trying various things to locate the source of the problem... all I can add is that there's no way a battery should be drained overnight so there's something wrong somewhere.

If it's the grip (that sounds most likely) at least you can still use the camera without it !

Agree - I've done all kinds of tests to narrow down the problem. The in-camera battery works as expected regardless if the grip is attached or not. Only the battery in the grip is drained.

Clean the contacts on the body first and if that dose not do it clean the tips of the pins on the grip.  If that dose not fix it, then keep the grip off when not in use.
