    This afternoon my phone decided to power cycle itself after I installed some updates to a couple of apps. It then gave me a bunch of errors so I cycled it again and it was fine.

    Well 3 hours later I checked my awake time and it was 100%!!!

    I am running handcent and the notifications of the native SMS app are off.

    I notice that every once in a while this will happen, and when I power cycle the phone, it will stop.

    Any ideas?

    Pure genius. :p

    It's an easy fix, except unless I check all the time, I'm going to be draining my battery.

    BTW, the phone went from 10:00 AM at 70% to totally dead at 6:30 PM (dead as in OFF) with the BT on, WiFi on, everything on and using the phone constantly with YouTube, internet, SMS and IM.

    Do you have Verizon visual vmail application installed? That thing uses sms native app for notifications which caused the problem for me.

    After doing sms thing and uninstalling that app theissuewent away. Also check to make sure you don't have any sms widgets on your on-screen.

    Weird, ive never seen the phone go that high. Highest ive seen was like at 35% and im also using the orignal SMS. Havent had any problems with it at all, did all the phones come with that bug or only certain of them?

    No, don't have visual voice mail.

    No SMS widgets. I have Handcent, but just the shortcut. I have no task killer installed

    Dunno, but it's a definite issue.

    I think that this is the root of the battery drain, personally. My tests bear it out. Yesterday I hammered on the phone and the time it dropped the most was that 2 hour period where it was at 100% awake.

    Weird.

    Did it again. Last looked at the phone last night and it was at 11% awake time, 55% battery.

    This morning the battery was down to 30% ...... except that the awake time was up to 45%!!!! Very uncool.
