    I ran a CPU monitor app and it says "Android System/Checkin Service" is using 10% of my CPU. Is this a normal part of android or is something running that should not be and reducing my battery life?

    Are you using a monitor from the market?

    I noticed that too (Using CPU Usage from the market), but when I click refresh a few times, it disappears and only the 'top' app is taking up about 5-6% CPU. I think the Android System/Checkin Service is what was run as the CPU monitor was starting up.

    Another app called 'Show CPU' does a 2 second poll constantly. And what I find disturbing is that idling it's about 3-4%, but when I gesture on the touchscreen it jumps up to 20% on my Acer Liquid with 768 Mhz Snapdragon processor. Granted I'm running a beta version of the 2.1 Eclair ROM, but still... Using the older stock 1.6 ROM, it jumps to about 10%.
