    Why yes, young Helmo, yes it will!
    Young Grasshoppers will one day learn to understand that if the screen is off/locked the battery will be saved.

    Actually, this depends. If the hack to get videos in the background is actually a background process it will still drain even in sleep mode. Ever notice how you can still SSH into your touch when it's asleep. This process is still running and the more you have running the more the sleep drain will be.

    That said, I don't know how the animated background works so it may not drain during sleep but it's something that should be answered
