    ahhh. thats what it is!! the sync in the power control widget.
    ive been manually syncing. i think i like that better. gmail isnt important enought to me to warrant real time syncing.

    There's an android widget that you can add to the home screen called Power Control. It let's you turn gps, wifi, Bluetooth, and data sync on or off with a single touch. I (and others) had data sync turned off. It's the icon with two arrows in a circle.

    Gmail sync takes very little battery power. I leave it on. POP3 takes very little battery power too, by the way.
