GPS satellites always running with 2.2

    I've always kept the GPS and the DATA power on the power widget flipped on.

    I would turn on BLUETOOTH and WIFI as needed.

    During 2.1, the GPS would activate only if I opened an app that required it, like Google Maps.

    But since 2.2, I've noticed the GPS running for no apparent reason.

    No open apps, no open browser, no open maps. Nothing. it just runs on it's own. An it only started since 2.2.

    I've never had to shut off my GPS before, but now, I have to keep it off and turn it on as necessary. Very frustrating.

    Anyone else having this problem?

    Have you tired powering off and back on? I've seen something similar if I was in a program that was using GPS and then closed that program before it got a GPS lock. For some reason the GPS stayed active trying to get a lock. That's the only time I've ran in to anything similar but going back in to the program and waiting until it got a lock or toggling GPS fixed it.

    So that's what it is. I'm going to remove the widget from the screen and see if that slows down the frequency. Thanks for the help.
