    I was wondering if we can compile a list of apps that makes the awake time higher on the phone or makes the battery drain faster? I just got my hero today, and am trying to figure this out? It could potentially help others too!

    Thanks!

    just check the reviews on the apps.

    Also, download Spare Parts from the market, and that'll help show what's been running in the background.

    Stay away from task killers, they tend to do more harm than good (check the sticky on the front page).

    ROOT, ROOT, ROOT. Get rid of those damn sprint apps (the ones your not going to use), they're just taking up valuable space, and half of them run when they don't need to. Put on a custom ROM (I recommend Fresh 1.1 as a starter), and a custom kernel. The phone will speed up considerably after that.

    Did I mention ROOT?
