1. Turn off Wifi
2. Use Advanced Task Killer to kill all apps (except for the alarm clock).
3. Plug in the USB charger (or docking station for that matter)
4. Press the "sleep" button once so the screen goes dark. Or, just allow the screen to sleep. It doesn't matter either way.
5. Go to sleep.
When I wake up in the morning my battery level might be at 50%!!!! How is this possible. And, say, 60% of "what's been using the battery" is "Display" (!?!)
Also, I can unplug the charger from the phone, then put it back in and by the time I'm showered and dressed for work the battery indicator icon is at full (probably above 90%).
What's going on here and what can I do to fix this? It's REALLY annoying.
When you connect the charger before going to bed do you check if it actually starts charging? Some people reported that it does not always stat charging for them and they have to disconnect it and connect again.
