    My phone is showing a lot of awake time. I am trying to figure out what is keeping my phone awake. I used to use spare parts, bus on my Gs2 it force closes constantly.

    Do you guys have any recommendations on a good apparently to tell you what is keeping the phone awake?

    Are you using Wifi? Mine sleeps whenever the screen is off as long as I'm not using Wifi. If it's on Wifi it barely sleeps. I haven't looked into it yet, I'm sure it's a setting on one of my apps that has it syncing often when on Wifi.

    Some tips for reducing awake time:
    disable as much background syncing as possible
    individual apps often report usage and whatnot, disable those options
    set Facebook to either Wifi only or manual sync
    find an app that tells you which apps are issuing wakelocks
    disabling the use of network time/date helped on my Photon, but I haven't needed to disable it on my GS2

    Try playing with settings here:
    Settings -> Accounts and sync.
    It can be a big battery saver, but you sacrifice some functionality (ie. automatic getting emails etc..).
