Hi, I got my Hero about a week ago. Went online, saw the work around for the messaging program, installed Handcent, and afterwards my "awake percentage" was down around 25%. Terrific. For the last 2 days, though, it's been back at 100%. I have no idea why. I have TasKiller on my phone and happened to notice that now there are way more programs running than there ever were before. Some of the things running are apps that I've downloaded but am not using since I last rebooted (ShopSavvy, RoboDefense, etc), others are things I haven't noticed before (com.biggu., AddPorgramActivity, com.smithmicro.DM). I think the only affect this has is reduced battery life, which is annoying, but most of all, I want my phone to function properly. Does anyone have an idea of how to fix this? I really would like to avoid resetting my phone. I didn't want to use my Gmail contacts for all the contacts in my phone, so I had to manually input like 150 phone numbers, and I don't want to have to do that again. I also would like to avoid having to re-download all my apps. I guess if someone knows how to backup the data on my phone so I could reload it after resetting this would be less of a concern, but still a last resort. Also, I'm concerned that if I just reset my phone, the same thing will happen again. I can post a list of the applications I've downloaded, if that helps. Please help! Thanks!!
