    If i turn off the gmail sync to save battery, is there a way to have it refresh on it's own every hour or so, or is it all or nothing? Either push or manual.

    Yes, if you toggle sync'ing OFF, then go into the Gmail app ... just press the Menu button, then tap Refresh. Works perfectly. :cool:

    I think he wants a timed auto-refresh without push. I don't think you can have that. Choices are auto-sync or manual refresh.

    That's what I figured, but I just wanted to make sure I wasn't missing anything.

    Are you talking about syncing emails? Because if your talking about Calendar and Contact syncing there really is no battery drain to be seen.
