    Man I've been M. I. A. from the forums. how is everybody? hope all is well. But ive got a small question, if my awake time and up time are the same, what can i do to make this freaking phone sleep? my battery seems to drain more than the usual. I could normally take it off the charger at night on 100% and wake up and it's at 89% or better. now it's at like 64% or worst. I dont think i need to flash another kernel, but if i do i will. but before i do that does anyone have any other options?

    have you checked in spare parts for partial wake usage. this should show you what is keeping your phone awake.

    Try airplane mode at night? Basically are any radios on that don't need to be?

    yes i always check spare parts and i see that it'll say android system will be the most. but in the first screen of spare parts it always says running is the most and screen on was close behind that. but my screen isn't on like the phone says it is.

    And i turn off almost everything when i sleep. wi-fi, 4g, gps, but.............

    im running Myn's RLS5. the cell standby and the phone idle is always between 46 & 48% both are. the cell radio is what i believe to be eating the battery but im still trying to cut things off and do different things so that it'll run fine again ...and yes this just started about a 2 weeks ago.

    If you go to settings/about phone/battery are your up and awake times different?

    Do you roam alot?

    Do you have the newest radio? (2.15.00.11.19, not technichally the newest but its still compatible with everything)

    Are you on PRI 1.90?

    When you sleep are you in a wifi network? If you are leave wifi on it will actually save battery, being on wifi takes up less battery than being on 3g.

    Edit: I know this didn't help with the sleep and awake time thing but just thought I would let you know.

    I don't really see an issue then bud. Turn off data if you aren't using it for extra battery savings...?

    I mean cell stand by is using half the battery used, just means the phone is usually idle and talking to the tower...?

    Toggle airplane mode heard that helps...

    honestly, its probably a new app that you have downloaded and sometning in it isnt playing nice and keeping your phone awake.

    You could either think back to about when it happened and see what app you downloaded at that time,
    or uninstall one app at a time to see which one is causing it,
    or wipe everything and start fresh.

    I usually wipe my pohone every other month or two. although ive been on konis and havent wiped in almost 3 months because ive been busy and havent found time to play. i like what ive got with konis now. AND!! had not even rebooted for about a month up until recently. (got screenshots to prove it ;) ) way to go koni!

    There is another app I've been using that has one good thing and the rest of the app sucks. It's called Android Booster. I don't use it because it is a task killer; however, in Utilities>Power Manager>Applications it tells you the specific app that is using up your battery. And that is the only thing I use it for. THe app sucks and the widget is even worse(it eats the battery!) I was able to pinpoint the app that was draining my battery (Tango and another time it was Tikl)
