    I noticed today that Froyo re-enabled "auto sign in" in Gtalk.
    I unchecked it, problem solved.

    If you're getting bad battery life after the update, make sure Gtalk is NOT auto signing you in. That's one of the biggest battery hogs.

    Just figured I'd post this to let everyone know a potential problem.
    And yes, I misspelled battery. Let's bring on the grammatical comments!

  2. this might sound silly, but how do you get to where you can un-enable it?

    Goto your app drawer, launch the application called Talk and then Menu-> Settings for it.

    Just FYI - I did that after I updated to Froyo Monday night. Noticed my battery was draining significantly today. First thing I checked was Talk. I was signed in again. Yes - I did sign out last time. So not sure what is up with that, auto sign is is disabled. I signed out again and signed out.

    I did so many different things to get the most out of my battery I can't really say what one or 2 (or 3 or 10 :) things finally did it for me, but I know this helps for sure.

    I actually use Gtalk regularly (also when I was on 2.1) and never really attributed it to battery drain. Glad it fixed your problem though.

    I noticed the last 2 days my battery was draining WAY too fast. I usually got thru the day at work and get home at about 30% but the last 2 days I was nearly drained. Today (after nearly 16 hours), I am at 25%.....

    I've also noticed that Latitude signed me in without me ever doing anything. I noticed much better battery life after I went in and turned it off so you might try this as well.

    What does it do if your not auto signed in? Does it stop your gmail being pushed

    How do you turn latitude off? When I go there it signs me in, but I don't see a way to turn it off.

    kinda noticed the same thing. Today seems to be doing pretty good vice the days right after the update. I've also followed all the advice mentioned in this thread so far.

    I don't use a task killer. Trusting Android
  16. I've also had HORRIBLE battery life after this update, worse than the very first week. With the 1.47 update, that dramatically helped my battery. I could go 2 days with light usage before charging. Now, with froyo, I made a 5 minute phone call today, sent 5 texts, and checked email a couple times, and i'm almost dead after less than 10 hours. This is ridiculous, something with this update is killing the battery.

    I don't see how to turn off Latitude either. What the heck is it and how do I turn if off?

    I had an app (not sure which one yet) that was causing my phone to stay awake all the time (awake time and up time were the same). Uninstalled a dozen apps and did a power reset (pwr off, battery remove) and that fixed the problem. I'm slowly re-installing the apps I removed to see if the problem recurs. So far it hasn't.

    Open Latitude, then click menu, and the icon with the 3 people bottom row middle, can't remember the name. But go there then the top option is turn off latitude.
