    I'm in the process of re-installing my apps, trying to find a culprit that might be keeping my phone awake - and was wondering if anyone else thinks they've found some guilty parties.

    So far the only app I've installed is the HTC Battery widget. Everything else is stock from the 2.1 leak. I'll probably put the official rom on there eventually (especially if I still can't fix the awake problem), but since it doesn't seem to be any different, I'm not in a hurry.

    Now, my phone seems to be going right to sleep when I press the end button. My awake time is a fraction of the up time.

    I just started using the Seido extended life battery (1750 I think), and I've put the phone through some heavy use - a one hour phone call using bluetooth, several other shorter calls, some instant messaging, lots of texts, some internet use and camera use. And I've not charged it since leaving the house. So far, I'm at 57% - which far exceeds anything I've experienced before 2.1, and before the extended battery. Right now I'm looking at all-day use with the phone - which is ideal.

    My issue is that I want to prevent the phone from staying awake again. 100% awake time always seems to cut my battery life in half, if not more. There doesn't seem to be a clean way for me to do this. Even after I uninstall all of my applications, the problem doesn't seem to correct itself until I restore the phone to factory settings. For this reason - it's hard to pin down which application (or setting) might be the culprit.

    Any help would be much appreciated.

    But even if the phone is not awake is still drains the battery. When im at work i have my bluetooth on and the phone is not awake and it drains my battery.

    Are you using 2.1? I haven't noticed any significant drain with bluetooth while the phone is sleeping. Certainly not as much as when I'm actually using the bluetooth during a call.

    And the battery is going to drain SOME no matter what. Does anyone know if the bluetooth disengages (not sure that's even the right word) when the phone sleeps?
