    Hey I've read up on the battery life sticky and various other threads pertaining to battery life and awake time. But my phone seems to still be around 50-60 percent. I don't use my phone all too much, and neither do I have any programs set to auto do anything except for mail to go and do its thing. But I remembered I do have various Sense widgets... could those be draining my battery? I have the Facebook, Mail, Calender, Sense Clock, Music, Weather, A Calender reminder, and Bookmarks. Please I need help :( I can't afford a better battery. Making 8.25 an hour really suckz :/

    On a side note, I know that 8.25 is more than last year, and the year before that, blah blah... ;)

    Have you used Spare Parts to try and track down the culprit? I don't think your awake time should be consistently that high under normal use, unless you're constantly playing with your phone (which I know a number of people here are guilty of). :D

    Also, I would check your Facebook app's settings. Sometimes those apps and widgets can be downloading data every few minutes, unless you specify otherwise.

    Your awake time is at 100% when your first turn on your phone. It will gradually go down as you don't use it. So it really depends if your using your phone a lot when you just turned it on.

    My awake time is running around 11%-12%. Also, how much free memory is desirable or put another way, at what point does low available memory start to become a problem? My free memory is usually around 110MB.

    Thanks,
    Roger

    At around 50-70 mbs the internal task killer will start shutting off anything unused. That's the low memory threshold

    I find it extremely strange because when I leave my phone on, overnight the battery doesn't go down AT ALL!!! I could have my phone on for days at a time! But during the night when I don't touch it I'm assuming it's still at 50-60% awake time because this morning I woke up to my friend texting me and it was STILL at 50-60%, and that could not have been from 1 text. And it wasn't a reminder it was the actual receive beep.
