Battery is still dropping fast.
A lot of awake time with no screen being on.....

This might make a difference between this phone and the V. Since the V was rooted I ran Droid Wall and blocked access to apps that did not need it.

I hate to do it since I have the apps I want and everything customized on the phone the way I like, but may have to factory reset. Add no apps and see how it does for a day, then start adding 2-4 apps a day and see what happens.

Also had this happen twice to me, once yesterday and once this morning. Hit the power button to turn the screen on and nothing happen. Held it down, still nothing. First time it happened yesterday I thought maybe the battery was exhausted. Pulled the battery and put it back in both times and booted up fine with plenty of power left.

Seems some app must have fubared the phone...
