My kindle won't go to sleep or turn off, I move the power switch at the bottom, the light flashes but still it won't turn off or go to sleep. Everything else on it is working fine. Anyone else had this issue?

Slide the power switch, hold for fifteen seconds. Walk away and have a cuppa. Once it has reset everything should be fine.

Haven't experienced that issue myself. Sounds like you might need to do a restart (it seems to solve a lot of problems). Failing that working, I would give Customer Support a call.

My still continues the same, after too reboots.

Never sleeps, so the battery gets low far too quickly.

It wouldn't have any more effect on the battery than the screensaver will unless you have wi-fi on. There is a way of disabling the screensaver - have you at any times done this? Have you installed the hack which allows you to put different screensavers on it?

As Damaskcat says the Kindle being on will have virtually no effect upon the battery as it needs no power to display the image. The wi-Fi on, however, will have an effect. If you're not downloading or browsing the internet you can always turn the wi-fi off.
