Support Calendar using a lot of battery

    I went into battery usage>>partial wake and found that Netcounter and Calendar were using virtually all of the battery between them. I've uninstalled Netcounter.

    However, I am curious as to why Calendar is using so much battery power? Is there a way I can reduce this?

    Are you running a task killer ?

    No, no task killer. It is specifically the Calendar app that was draining my battery, along with Netcounter in the 'Partial Wake' state of the phone.

    The reason I asked is that when I had ATK running on mine (long since gone) it kept the Google Maps application running at 100% (don't ask me how or why) which emptied the battery pretty quickly.

    The only other time I've had an app running high partial-wake was when the Facebook app had its problems (version 1.3.0 and 1.3.1 AFAIR).

    From the dialer *#*#4636#*#* (or download Spare Parts)

    Then look in Battery History
