That remote probably isn't drawing a signficant amount of milliamps (mA), at idle. More than likely it draws close to microamps (uA), at idle. The instant on fucntion on your TVs draw more than that. The clock on the microwave probably draws more than the remote. The propane gas detector probably does as well.
