    So I was looking at my awake time an noticed that it was 70%, from just laying around at work for most of the day. Didn 't really use it at work. Most of the time its like 5-10%
    Has anyone heard of any up date's on an APP that might cause this?
    I just got an update for "spare parts" anyone hear of this maybe causes it?

    OK so here is a thought, I have the free weather bug app,
    Now we in the northeast the last day or two have had a TON weather warnings,like wind, flood, and snow.
    Does anyone thing that maybe the weather service warnings could be causing weather bug to fire up outside of the 6 hour setting I have it set for updates? is what could be doing it?
    I just opened weather bug and there was 7 flood warnings..

    Where do you find the "awake time"? I poked around in settings and couldn't find it.

    Hmmm... not on the Droid. I have an "up time," but all that's showing is how long the phone's been up since the last reboot. I got the impression that your "awake time" was showing how much the phone was being active, versus just sitting and idling.

    Not trying to be a pain here, but then how can that time "spike"? My "up time" just shows a constantly ticking clock... never stops or pauses. Again, I was thinking this was an "awake and being used by some app" time, versus just idling in one's pocket.

    your "up time" must be the time the phone is turned on maybe?
    My "awake time" is just what % of time out of the total amount of time the phone is turn on and that the phone CPU is doing something I think...:)

    Exactly. That's the way I understood you, too.

    So, to my original question, where do I find "awake time" on a Droid?

    My awake time seemed to stay between 15-26%. Last night, I put in my new 1750mh battery. I booted up this morning and when I checked the awake time it was at 89%! It has gone down to 65% now after about 20 min, but what the hell is that about? hmmmm:mad:

    what's the "up time"
    what's the awake time and %
    Your awake time will be high when you first turn the phone on, but as the up time goes up and you don't play with the phone the awake time should go down.

    Up time is 33:05 and a awake time is 61%. So this should go down throughout the day? OK, I was worried, because I just put this new battery in. I don't usually check until the evening I guess, but I checked today first thing in the morning after I turned on the phone. Thanks.
