    I have started to notice some strange behavior of my Evo 3 times over the last 4 days. Everything will be running fine until I hit a point where my CPU appears to spike to around 40% and plateau there, but ONLY while the screen is off. As soon as I turn the screen back on CPU usage drops back to < 5%. Rebooting seems to fix the issue, but now that it has happened 3 times since sunday I'm started to get concerned.

    I've tracked down plenty of rogue apps in android using systemPanel and spare parts, but I am having no luck with this one...

    I'm currently not rebooting so I can troubleshoot the issue...

    any suggestions?

    First thought...are you using set pci and if yes what is the screen off setting?
    Are you rooted?

    set pci? or do you mean setCpu? either way the answer is no.

    Rooted? Yes. VaelPak ROM, has been running well for about 3 weeks with no issues.
