    What is a good way to find what app is causing the phone not to sleep. I charged the phone last night while on, unplugged this morning and according to Spare Parts, my phone has been running 100%. I've also got System Panel Lite and Battery Left, but I'll be damned if I can't tell what the offending app is. Battery is on Smart Mode, Time Outs are set to 15 min for both Off Peak and Peak.

    Good news is 9 hours 36 minutes and I'm still at 50% with an extended Battery and I've done quite a bit of Market searching and downloading, had a few phone calls, sent a few texts, checked the news widget, checked emails, and checked the old facepage a dozen times. (slow day at work):D

    Anyway, anyone have a good way to check for offending applications?:thinking:

    Found "my" answer to this in another thread. I just toggle the GPS icon.

    I keep it off. When you use an app that needs it, it will turn on so no need to leave it on.

    For some reason, Android does not seem to shut it off even though it shows as off. Just turn it on, wait 2-3 seconds and shut it off. Wait a few minutes and spare parts should show the phone as NOT running 100%.

    Works for me, i hope it works for you. I am now getting 16+ hours of battery life with 20-30% left !!!!

    system panel will tell you what apps are using the most battery. click on the app and it gives a percentage. my system panel is running constantly and it averages 0.6% so anything close to that. im no expert but i had the same problem with the pervert finder app, life 360, and now i dont have a problem

    Spot on...Thanks.:D
    As many times as I've read those gps threads I should have known. I turned gps on over the weekend and left it on...I usually keep it off till needed. I just toggled it off and on, no more running 100%. :eek:

    Or better yet, use "Spare Parts" from the market.
