    Hello All

    Over the last few days I have noticed that my phone battery is only just lasting a day.

    It used to last no problem, but I would charge it over night as it wouldnt last 2 days.

    I have advanced task killer installed, and have it set to agressive, when the screen turns off.

    Any ideas?

    Yeah...about Task Killers.

    I suggest you turn it's auto kill option off.

    Then leave the phone alone for 5-10 min. Then open the task killer and make note of what apps are running. Kill them.....wait another 5-10 min and then open task killer again and are there any apps in the list that you think shouldn't be in there?

    I would suggest cleaning things up, like unused apps on the phone. And some apps cache grows and grows and needs to be cleaned....maybe search for an app that does that.

    Anyone else have any suggestions?

    it seems like setting it to aggressive has made your task killer drain your battery even more, just a guess.
    maybe use minimal settings without autokill and kill apps after you've finished using them.

    Are you running GB?

    I noticed when I switched to GB, the battery went down faster due to the CPU.
    But being rooted, I reduced the CPU speed to 768Mhz max and not use the 998Mhz at all, It lasted longer.
