I read about a problem where some apps can stop the phone from sleeping but I checked the up and awake time and they're different so I don't think thats the problem. Awake time seems to be about a third of the up time in general.
I don't have any fancy live wall paper, just normal widgets, mostly stock ones.
The only accounts I have syncing are facebook, gmail, and few email addresses (non exchange).
So Please, if anyone can come up with suggestions for reasons my battery is being drained, I'd be very grateful!
How is your signal strength and reception? Do you have 3G coverage? What about WiFi?
I have found that when I don't have a good 3G signal it affects my battery life tremendously. I have Wifi coverage at home and work, so I leave Wifi on all the time and my 3G coverage at work and home is excellent and I get over 2 days on a single charge.
When I travel with my phone and the signal strength is moderate, then my battery will last about 12 hours.
