    Hi :D

    Alllrighty. So. I have a vanilla Hero. Since I bought it (around 2 months ago), the awake time has NEVER been under 100%. I installed the Modaco 2.9 ROM yesterday (which I highly recommend; my Hero is now much faster:)) and it's STILL 100%.

    Spare parts tell me that the culprit appears to be 'Android system'. :thinking:

    Any ideas? I'd like to reduce my wake time if it's at all possible. :eek:

    **EDIT**

    I'm aware of the messaging app/dialer issue; that's not what this is, since I'm using CHOMP sms and it's still an issue.

    Perhaps you have an App installed that is preventing it from going to sleep?

    Do you have WaveSecure installed on your phone? If so - updating WaveSecure will solve this issue.

    Hope this helps.

    It's possible, but I don't know what app it would be. :-/
    Oh, and no, no Wavesecure, that was an add on.

    Try using a task killer app and killing groups of processes. If after killing a group, your phone can go to sleep properly, you know the culpret is in that group and you can start narrowing it down.

    I've come across a lot of people with Heroes with an awake time of 100%, thought it might be an idea to have a list of apps that prevent the phone from sleeping.

    We know the stock messaging app can do it, any others?

    True. If you're running the modaco 2.9, there's a fix for that.

    I can add a countdown widget to the list. I had one on my homescreen until today; after a reflash, it kept force closing. So I removed it and since then my awake time has been steadily dropping.
