    My battery did not last longer than 4 hours this morning after I got my driod. I believe it's due to the following process:

    Settings -> applications -> running services

    I have a process called DownloadService which falls under Media Process: android.process.media

    Any ideas what may be using this process? I've killed it about a dozen times to have it re-appear within seconds. I thought at first it may be due to exchange email and synching. I disabled email from pushing and it still runs.

    I've also killed tasks using TaskPanel (from Market) and it is still running in the background.

    I checked a friends Droid as well and he does not have that process running. So I believe this is the cause of my battery draining so quickly.

    Any ideas?

    Did you fully charge your phone prior to using it? If not, that 20% charge or whatever they give you right off the bat could be the problem.
