    Today after just a few hours off the charger, my phone was almost dead. I launched the battery app and found that gmail was taking up a huge portion of my battery life. 70% was the number given.

    I tried disabling / force stopping gmail... i turned off sync etc... no luck.

    What can I do to stop or remove this app? I cant even seem to uninstall it under settings > applications?

    Sorry if this is a newbie question, I am brand new to Android phones

    If Gmail came on your phone (it did), you can't uninstall without root. If syncing is off, it's not causing battery drain. Make sure you have good cell coverage (more than 1 bar), that can be the biggest battery drain. Battery apps don't always tell the true story. Background data is OK to have checked, auto-sync is not (unless you know what your apps are doing). Try putting your phone in airplane mode for 2 or 3 hours, see how much battery goes down. Turn off wifi if not using it. Turn off GPS.
