    I have a samsung droid stratosphere and would like to share one of my issues and see if any of you have experienced this.
    Plug in and charge your phone before you go to bed, turn it off and unplug it, in the morning try and turn it on. Mine was dead, and its not very old ( almost 1 year) Im an electronics tech and know all about batteries and how to charge them for optimal capability.
    This is what Ive experienced just last night. I charged my phone (1 yr old droid) completely and then turned it off and unplugged it, woke up this morning and it was completly dead. Charged it and it lasts all day.
    Anyone experience this?
    My conclusion is either I have a horrible battery (which I seriously dought since it works normally when charged stays all day depending on use) or my apps are using my juice as I sleep without the phone being on.
    I suspect this is the reason because why would they put in the permissions of most apps now, that they can access the internet and all of my data, phone lists, posting to the internet on my behalf and even over write any of my info or programs. It makes me really suspiscious of what the hell is going on when Im not using my phone.
    Try this yourself, especially if you have a bunch of apps.
    Most people do like I have for the last several years, they leave their phone plugged in overnight ( I know I did for years with no notice of battery issues, even now) So why was my phone dead in the morning when it was turned off???
    SO now Im gonna clean my phone of apps that require any admin access to my personal info, internet, phone features like my camera or audio or allowed to overwrite my info , post on my behalf, or even power on if turned off.
    No app needs to access my passwords, personal info contacts, data and certainly dont need full access to the internet camera or audio when the phone is off!
    I really suspect something aweful is happening here without our knowledge.
    Any ones insight would be appreciated here, especially anyone willing to experiment with me to find out the real issue be it battery or juice theft by app

    I may be over a month late in this response... but i will do it anyway ^_^

    I have seen before when you turn a phone off, it turns itself back on.
    Yes this has happened to me and my Samsung GNEX, It is possible it is a samsung issue...

    after a while it stopped doing it. But it would turn itself on and stay on the entire night, and yes this can drain your battery... just depends on what is running, I remember waking up to mine on and about to die and having to drive 3 hours in the snow... so yeah not a happy camper for me. (upset cause i may have needed it in case of an emergency, not for texting or phone calls while driving in the snow).

    Maybe that's what happened. even though im sure you have found a fix.. but i will add this anyway :) take the battery out next time and see if it is dead in the morning. then you will know the phone turns itself on...
