    So, I left my phone on my dresser last night with the WiFi off, screen at the lowest brightness, no gps on etc... and it lost 30-40% of its battery just by sitting here....

    This tells me one thing I think, the phone doesn't sleep? Isn't it suppose to sleep if not in use?

    Oh and what's the difference between the up and awake time.

    Most likely u r gonna have some open apps running that r draining ur battery.Check the Up vs Awake time that will tell weather something is running causing the phone not to go to sleep mode.Please someone correct me if im wrong.

    Up time is how long since boot, awake is basically when the phone is doing something. If awake Time is equal to up time then you ave an issue.

    Up time is the amount of time that your phone is powered on.
    Awake SHOULD be the amount of time that you have the phone unlocked and are using it. The awake time should stop going up the second you hit the power button to turn the screen off.

    Try this: Look at your awake time and write down the time it says right before you turn off your screen. Now wait some amount of time, say 5 minutes. Now check your awake time again. There should be about a 5 minute difference in the time you wrote down and the awake time that your phone is displaying when you turn the screen back on. If there is no difference you have an app or process or something that is still running and you need to figure out what it is because that is eating your battery.

    You could also try doing a power cycle on your phone, this will reset your up and awake time as well as restart all running programs which could help your issue. After a while of using your phone, and not using it, you should notice a difference in these two times. If your up and awake are the same then something is running when the screen is off. Do this while unplugged from your charger.

    I hope that makes sense.

    Awake time is 4 hours and up time is 16 hours. Using the *#*#4636#*#* thing it only says Android and calendar are on. What would show mr if something like a widget is running?
    Running services app?

    Well that is a good sign, im not sure why you lost 30%-40% overnight, maybe someone else can chime in on that.

    Id bet you have battery draining apps running still. When I kill all my apps via app killer, then I use one app, it immediately turns on other apps occasionally. Idk why it does that.

    palomino...out of respect and integrity for both forums i won't post a direct link, however i think you'll be very please with a posting over on sprintusers.com go there and search "root + overclockwidget" and you'll find a detailed account on how to set your sleep settings without rooting the phone. i've done it and it has added a great amount of battery life to my evo.

    The app "Spare Parts" allows you to look and see what programs are keeping your phone from sleeping. Open the app > Battery usage > change the top selection to 'Partial wake usage'.

    That helped me find that I was improperly exiting a baseball app I was using.

    I haven't gotten my EVO yet, I'm assuming the black and white image is like a bar code of some sort? Is there a part of the phone you take a picture of it with and the app uploads from the market? Just curious. :)

    Yep, it's a barcode. There's a few bar code scanners that will scan the image and link you to what ever the bar code is associated with.

    My phone went to sleep just fine untill 2 days ago. Now never sleeping. Uptime awake time equal. Did not change anything. Only partial wake lock is android system. Tried all the tricks metioned in numerous posts including PRL, google talk off, etc. No apps seem to be doing this. Biggest user is android system at 47%. any ideas?

    Alright, my co-worker had a battery that was fine until a couple days ago. She complained to me that it was dying and I checked, she had 100% awake time. I couldn't figure out what app it was, but under Spare Parts it showed Calendar using partial wake usage more than anything else (a LOT more than anything else).

    I kept showing her how mine was fine, then lo and behold...in the middle of the day I started getting 100% awake time too. I installed spare parts and checked partial wake usage, again, Calendar using more than anything. I am super pissed off right now. My battery is dead (completely dead) right now at 5 PM when I unplugged at 8AM. Normally at 10PM I still have at least 30% left. And I did NOT play with my phone AT ALL today except when downloading spare parts!

    I noticed the arrows on my 3G logo were stuck white. Meaning there was constant network activity. I checked spare parts and found extremely (almost constant) network activity from:

    0
    UID 10006

    NO idea what those are. Nothing helped until I did a hard reset. I signed into my Google account and so far the awake time issue is gone.

    What the hell? Did some update break our phones? And why is it the Calendar seemed to screw everything up? SOMETHING made my phone go from 70% to ZERO in a matter of 4 hours.

    WHAT...THE...F

    Calendar never sleeping was known to be a byproduct of Facebook sync being a pile of crap.
