    i had about 50% battery left when i went to sleep last night at 2:00 in the morning and i woke up just now at 11:00 and my phone was off :confused: so i tried to turn it back on and it came on for about 2 secs and than shut off cause there was no juice in the battery... this has never happened before EVER




    its kinda odd and im trying to figure out whats causing this... any ideas?? same thing happened to my storm a couple of times BTW

    Download the app called spare parts. It will show you what uses your battery life while in sleep mode. I found out that WeatherBug was killing my battery at night so I uninstalled it.

    Same thing happens to me everytime.. I go to sleep at night and I wake up in the morning and the battery is dead.. the only thing that i can think of might be the "Alarm" which i set up before i go to sleep...

    I not going to set up the alarm this upcoming weekend and see if there are any changes..

    Keep me posted if anybody has a solution to this problem..

    no its not the alarm, cuz i barely have mine set and when i do it doesnt drain the battery. its an app thats causing this... and its updating every 15-30 min and thats whats causing it to drain im pretty sure

    Or something that just uses your location feature (gps) and doesn't let it go!

    I use alarm clock all the time as my primary alarm. I also run weatherbug but ONLY have it update based on my zip code and every 30 mins.

    I can run youtube, emails, txt, whole lotta calls, streaming music, and by lunch time, it can be as low as 80%, which is amazing.

    Please try the app spare parts. Download the app and then plug your phone in to reset the stats that spare parts records. Unplug and leave overnight and check spare parts app when you wake up. Click on battery history in the app then click your top drop down box and select partial wake usage. This will show your apps that are running when the phone is sleeping. Make sure your bottom drop down says since last unplugged. This is how I found what was draining my battery. Let us know your results.

    Best thing you could have done was kill the battery, I killed mine and now it stays charged double what it used too. Just make sure you dont have a bunch of processes running, your battery life will skyrocket now. Just make sure you charge it 100%, If not...Let it die again and charge to 100%, you will be amazed.
