Leaving battery in camera

With my old P+S which took disposables, and my videocam, I found whenever I left the battery in the camera unused for any length of time it seemed to drain the battery
However I was reading a "camerabag checklist" on another forum, and several members advised leaving the battery in the camera, in the big. Is this ok?
What do other people do / opinions?

IMHO it is standard practice to remove a battery from any device if it is not going to be used for any length of time.
This is from a drainage rather than leakage point of view.

Short term it doesn't really matter. I don't know if the same applies to leakage, but I would imagine so.
