    There are a bunch of threads out there talking about battery usage and how to figure out what's draining your battery.

    Almost all of them say to go get Spare Parts app from the market and check you "partial wake usage".

    I did that and 95% of my partial wake usage is from "Android System".

    Is that normal? Anyone who is getting good battery life (20+ hours) - what do you see in the partial wake usage?

    I just checked my phone:

    13h 10m 23s since unplugged
    Partial Wakelock:Android System Total time: 13h 1m 44s

    Is this normal?

    The only widgets I have are:

    Stock power control widget
    Ringer Toggle Widget

    I am running GDE in the background (not my default home screen).

    Any ideas?

    Yep, that's right on the money. A "properly" working Droid should be drained almost entirely by the Android system during partial wake usage. Improperly coded software will show otherwise (i.e., eBuddy will replace Android in the Partial Wake Usage).
