I don't use the facebook app myself but from what I've heard, the 1.7.0 and 1.7.1 are draining lots of people's batteries. Wake-locks and gps staying on like you said. I'd say uninstalling it and then finding a v1.6.4 apk is your best bet for now. That or trying out friendcaster.

I use the latest facebook app on my VZW fassy (PWGB/Leankernel) just fine with battery (only charge nightly) ... go into settings and change "update frequency" or whatever to NEVER and you will still get push notifications for your widget, and the rest of data will only be updated when you open the main app.
