    Hello there,

    I tried the Search feature to no avail for this particular question.

    When I originally downloaded the Spare Parts application for my Motorola Droid, it would show the amount of time each program had my phone in 'wakelock'.

    Ex: Going into the Partial Wake usage would show times.

    However, lately I noticed going in there this no longer happens...

    Anyways, just curious if anyone here has any ideas as to why.

    And yes I already uninstalled and reinstalled.

    I'm not sure what you are asking. When I select 'Partial Wake Usage', I see graphs that show which apps used the most partial wake times. It does not show any numbers on the graphs. Is that what you mean? I don't remember seeing numbers before.

    My biggest partial wake user is NetCounter.

    Partial Wake Usage use to show the amount of time underneath the graphs, so yes I was asking about that.

    Maybe they change it... Hmm.

    Just got the spare parts update, it has a setting for agressive processing and closing of apps, is that safe?

    Since you are using a phone with the Sense UI it is not really advisable. The aggressive part will actually shut down Sense on you. This will cause a constant restart of the Sense UI when you wake the phone up or have been using an app for a long time.

    I think spare parts is whacked out. On the Behold it force closes when you open it now and just a few days ago it was working fine.

    I just stumbled across this app; would someone be so kind as to explain what the "aggressive" process handling actually does?

    I can't save the changes I made to my Droid X with spare parts, anyone know the answer? I was able to save the change to the end button, but not the font size.
