Question Battery Drains By Itself without use Overnight???

This has happened about 2-3 times now since the phone was released. T

The phone is fully charged before I go to bed and in the morning it's dead since the phone turned off by itself.

Also it might explain why during the day, even without use for 2-3 hours it drains for no reason down to ~25%?

So weird, anyone else have this problem? I don't have the GPS on.

Something is staying on. Always. Try a *#*#4636#*#* Then check out the battery info tabs. Get back to us.

get an app called "spare parts"

then click battery history

check what are at the top of the lists under "partial wake" and "other usage"

That will pinpoint what drained the battery down

Some app you've installed is not "sleeping" when not being used.

Could be electromagnetic interference. Some places drain batteries dry real quick, no matter what type. I had that happen with my digital camera. Usually, it lasts a few hours, but in some areas, it drains in under one.

Until you find the problem you could power off the phone when you go to bed and cut it on when you wake up.

It's a common problem. I had to do a factor reset to fix the issue for myself.

I heard about that some months ago on the Eris forum.(I think) Try doing a search in the entire Android Phones forum to see if anything pops up.

No, Settings -> Privacy -> Factory data reset. You'll be back to square one and have to reactivate, reinstall all apps. It's a big pain in the butt, but it resolved one of my issues for some stupid reason.

I'm not sure if it's the calendar on the Exchange sync or not. I heard that Google sync might be a problem but I don't have that problem. I also just read that a full wipe fixed it for someone but that is such a pain. If it's really a problem I would give it a shot and set up everything again. Also you can take a look through this thread.

Try this, its saved me a boat load of battery at idle.

From homescreen, menu/settings/wireless & networks/mobile networks and uncheck 'enable always-on mobile data'.

Definitely try this.

My boyfriend has the same problem, but with his Motorola Droid. He even will plug it in at night, or put it on the holster, and by morning within 5 minutes it's completely dead. We can't figure it out either. Verizon said it's probably a defective holster... but that doesn't seem right to me either.

I would switch it out with warranty, but then the waiting begins...

I have this problem when a calendar "reminder" pops up and I don't actually dismiss it. The phone won't charge even when plugged in (the orange LED just blinks and the battery drains). My battery info said that the calendar was 80%+ of my usage. At first I was just clearing the notification panel for calendar items, but now I have to click on each one as it comes up and actually "dismiss" it. I haven't had the problem since.

If the holster has a magnetic flap, its entirely possible.

The Moto Droid has magnetic sensors in a few spots to automatically put it in car mode when docked in the car dock or desk mode when put in the desktop dock. Run a magnet near those sensors and the screen comes on and it changes mode. That'd run down the battery pretty quick

What notifications do you lose exactly? The net connects when it needs to, and then turns off. If something needs data it will go out and get it. No need to always have data on.

And is any of that worth losing that much battery life over? And there is a difference between background data and always on data.

it might stay connected, but its also 100% of the time so the phone never sleeps. if the phone went to sleep with the always on data off then you loose the notifications and such. with meebo running 100% of the time you kill your battery

On this subject. What are the "running services" that need to be constantly running? The ones that have always run, since day one, on my Inc are:
ObexService (Calendar)
Touch Input
GTalkService

I assume I can "stop" the calendar. The others necessary to keep running?

Red face Apps that are draining out the battery

Guys, I had the same problem today. I woke up and the phone was off. I was shocked, because I knew that last night the battery was at over 70%. I have used the CODE (thanks bjanow) and I have found from Usage statistics that the Google play music run for 27,031,826ms=7.5 hours. So I learned on hard way that even if you get out from application doesn't mean that it stop to run in the background.
Easiest way to stay out of this type of problems is to check what app using your battery every time you are using a new app.
Hope this help.
