    Hello,

    I need some help. I am an android NEWBIE The phone is warm & the battery drains in about 4hrs. Started searching some forums and tried several things, been battling unsuccessfully for several days.

    Menu > About > Battery: Shows that Awake = Uptime

    using an application called System Panel Lite to try to figure out what is going on...some png's are attached.


    Here are some of the things that I have tried
    1) Performed a Factory Reset
    2) All Active Syncs = OFF : No Luck
    3) home > apps > TALK : disabled automatic sign in, Signed out and rebooted = NO CHANGE

    Menu > Settings > Applications > Running Services:
    format: Application (process): Service:
    bold = my problem

    Calendar (com.htc.bgp): ObexService
    Calendar (com.htc.bg): Connectivity Service
    Google (com.google.process.gapps: GTalkService
    Voicemail (com.coremobility.apps.vnotes: CM_Service
    Media(android.process.media):MediaScannerService
    HTC DM(com.htc.android.omadm.service): HtcDmService
    Sprint Zone (com.sprint.zone): UpdateService
    HTC IQAgent (com.htc.android.iqagent): AgentService
    com.smithmicro.DM (com.smithmicro.DM): DMServiceApp
    Touch Input (com.htc.android.htcime): Touch Input

    I tried to shutdown the MediaScannerService process, however there was NO CHANGE in the CPU usage.

    Any suggestions on what to try?

    regards

    Well you can definitely turn off Google Talk, which is just their chat thing on the gmail page. That's a start, though I dunno that it'll help that drastically.

    I think android.process.media is what accesses media on your SD card. Do you have stuff(mp3's) on there or is it still factory clean?

    Yes I have tons of stuff on the SD Card.
    1) I hooked up the EVO to a computer as a disk drive and copied the entire contents of the stock card to a particular folder.
    2) I took out the stock SD card from the evo.
    3) I put in my 16GB Card
    4) I formatted it with the EVO
    5) Reconnected to a computer and dumped the files from stock back into the evo
    6) Copied many other files that I had into various folders.

    Airball!!!!

    Actuallt, GTalkService is your connection to Google's servers. Turning it off will stop most communication with your phone. Gmail won't update, contacts and calendars won't update... leave GTalkService running. It isn't eating your battery.

    That's sound like it's going to be your problem then. Check out this link

    Basically you've got one faulty file causing the problem. Have fun trying to find it on 16 GB.

    Maybe a file got corrupted in the transfer and the phone gets stuck trying to read it over and over. Try formating and replacing everything? Or one by one opening each file and see if it hangs. That will be your problem file.

    Edit: The android.process.media will crash when you try to open the effecting file.

    eek 3500 files, 144 folders. This should be fun.
    This is considered a bug right....


    Thanks for responding, I thoroughly wasted a minimum of 24hrs on this. I need a drink.

    Just for the record. I have Google talk turned off and my Gmail updates just fine. Don't use the calandet so can't speak to that but Gmail works fine without Google talk.

    Does your Gmail still give you notifications? I stopped my GTalkService and my gmail stopped notifying me when I got emails. Restarted the phone and notifications were back working...

    I manually killed GTalkService to test this out. It took a long time for gmail to push the new email to me but it eventually did. I looked and GTalkService had reloaded itself. So yea it looks like GTalkService does have to do with gmail comunication.
