I've been using Launcher Pro Plus for maybe a month. I was getting bored with my phone and the change made me . I was in denial for weeks... For some reason it drained my battery so much. I'm so over Sense... Running Launcher Pro Plus I was getting 5 hrs max battery life... If I went out for the night I could easily go through a fresh battery in 3 hrs. Taking a few pics, tweeting... I switched back to Sense and my battery life is back to 8-9 hrs........ WHY WHY WHY!!!! Is it b/c of the Launcher Widgets?? I tried changing the settings on widgets to sync/refresh less frequently but that didn't help. I have 4 batteries in total (long story) but it got to time consuming remembering to charge backups and always swapping batteries. Also Launcher was ALWAYS FORCE CLOSING..So pretty much after doing anything I'd have to wait for it to do a mini-re-boot. That's honestly why I had to switch back. I haven't read much about other people having the same problem so I feel like it's me..
