    Screebl Theory
    For those of you who suspect Screebl (Pro, in my case) is eating your battery, I submit the following for your thoughts & input:

    My problem is with this app....not my specific Android device.

    Have used Screebl Pro since I first got the phone on June 4th. It was working fine....giving me more than a day of battery use, easily. Just recently though, my battery life dropped to less than 4 hours!. No programs running in background. Usual suspects (GPS, various programs) all turned off and not demanding frequent updates.

    Phone shows Screebl is using 94 percent of my battery.

    The revelation I think may be most telling is that Awake Time is way too high compared to Up time.
    (Phone not plugged in while charging)

    Could Sceebl somehow not be shutting my phone down (allowing it to
    sleep) when it appears to be doing so?

    Well, I disabled Screebl earlier today and battery use has slowed way down. I'll continue to monitor while not using Screebl.

    After disabling Screebl, Up time is now about DOUBLE the Awake time...which leads me to believe that while Screebl Pro was APPARENTLY allowing the phone to sleep, it was not.

    I don't want to give up using Screebl....but suspect this is what's

    Thoughts? All of this came out of the blue. Again, I had been getting a day
    (plus) out of my battery. Sometimes now only a few hours!

    BTW: I have not added or changed any apps from
    the time battery was performing well
