I was happy with my Awake Time usually running at around 10-11%. For some reason, now my awake time is always at ~ 40-50%. I had installed some new weather apps & widgets, so I uninstalled them. I uninstalled Spare Parts, because my change in awake time happened after upgrading that program. I uninstalled Astro File Manager - even though I don't think it's the problem, but it is a big app (I know that's not related to awake time, I was just getting desperate). I have the following apps installed currently: ATM - hardly ever use this. It's NOT set to do anything automatically - I just like to look at what's running if I have a prob Handcent Digital Clock Widget Bettercut My Backup Pro I have Mail set to pull mail every 30 minutes (same as before). Nothing is set to auto sync. GPS & Bluetooth off, Wifi on (when in range) and Mobile Network on, Location setting off. While I'm at it -- I generally hate the trade-offs with this phone: There are tons of cool apps and widgets in the Market, but each time I've tried something, I usually end up uninstalling it because in some way, overall phone performance is downgraded or compromised in some way - battery drain, lag or similar. Now, I am down to the most basic list of apps, and my phone thinks it's working half of the time it's supposed to be sleeping! I have read all of the tips for battery life and optimizing - btw. Just checking for any fresh insight to this awake time problem.
