    Upon starting up my phone was locked in awake status and I couldn't figure out why.

    So against my will, I've downloaded ATK.

    I noticed that upon killing ANY application that was loaded by the system at start up (besides ATK) would allow the phone to sleep.

    So FM Radio, Footprints, Docs to Go....

    Killing just one of those or I imagine just about anything else that loaded from the start, stopped my wakelock.



    Also I noticed by putting the phone into airplane mode, and then taking it out, seemed to work as well.


    I'm not a fan of the bug lol.

    I did notice however that ATK does not properly kill itself. Or when/if it does, it starts itself back up. Only way to stop that was to go to the applications management and force stop it.

    Great. HATE task killers.

    Advanced Task MANAGER seems to kill itself. So I'll be using that from now on.

    Another fun thing I noticed is that if you use the widget (end all) the phone stays awake. But if you go in and end one single app, any app, it will go into sleep mode when you shut off the screen.

    This shit is weird.
