    Hello everyone. I'be been lurking for a week here, trying to learn Android and my new awesome EVO. I'm loving it so far, but I'm still working out my battery issues.

    I downloaded and installed Battery Indicator, which provides a battery life % in the status bar. When I was at 35%, I shut off 3G, 4G, GPS, WiFi, and Bluetooth. So the only thing left was the phone itself. I turned off the screen and actually got some work done for an hour :D I didn't touch the phone at all during that hour. Then I checked the battery and I was down to 25%.

    I had read that some folks here are losing only around 1% an hour when idle, so does anyone have any ideas for what else I can do? That's a big battery loss when the phone is just resting untouched with no internet connection.

    Sign out and disable auto-sign in on google talk.

    un-install any task killers.

    Install "Juice Defender"

    Disable automatic screen brightness

    etc etc etc, or just buy bigger batteries and be done.

    The problem i have with Juice Defender is it won't quit Sprint Apps.

    I don't have task killers, and my brightness is set to like 30% with the auto feature shut off. Also, does it matter how my account-syncing is set up if I have 3g, 4g, etc turned off? Won't those apps realize I'm offline?
