    Why do so many of the applications say they prevent the phone from sleeping? Is this a problem if the applications are left open or a problem with the applications all of the time no mater if they are open or not?

    What that means is that your phone won't sleep in the middle of you using the application. If you don't hit "bacK" to leave the app you can turn the screen off and the app will still use the battery from what I have seen. So you just make sure you back out of the app properly and you won't have any problems.

    Also, there is a program I've installed called Keep Screen that allows you to set which programs you want to stay alive. I found that it was frustrating when I might be reading or doing something without any input into the phone to have the phone go into sleep. Nice little application, IMO.
