Certainly with the PCM-M10, "standby" refers to the mode when the record button 
has been pressed, but not the play button. It's probably digitising sound then, 
so I imagine the times are the same as for recording, and the manual lists a 
battery life of 43 hours with alkalines for mp3 at 44.1kHz/64kbps. Surely much 
longer when it's in what the manual calls sleep mode, but I can't find any 
mention of how long.

At the time I purchased the Olympus LS-11, I had narrowed my choices
down to either the Sony PCM-M10 and the LS-11 and at the time I had
copies of the manuals of each and did a feature for feature comparison.
As I recall, the LS-11 was rated for 23 hours in stand-by mode and the
PCM-M10 was rated for 24 hours in stand-by mode... I use Tenergy high
capacity NiMH AA cells with the Tenergy 8 cell intelligent charger, and
I typically get several days use out of a set of 2500 ma Tenergy AA
batteries in the LS-11. However I rarely use it for more than 4 to 6
hours a day when using it in the field.
