    According to spare parts android system is using the sensor pretty much constantly? I'm not using the automatic brightness and currently its showing 2 hours of use with 1 hour of awake time. I'm confused. So far this second leak has been a pile of crap for me. Should've just dealt with the gmail sign on problem.

    Never heard of it. So nope. I.just am trying to figure out how sensor usage could be higher than awake time? And its android system so not like its a process I can kill. Reloaded yesterday and ran battery down to 8 percent before charging for a little calibration I hope and well see how it goes today.

    My Android System has caused very high awake time as well. I am also running 2.1 v2. While in Airplane Mode, my phone won't sleep at all.

    It sucks because there's not an app to kill. It's the operating system.

    Occasionally, this will happen when I'm not in airplane mode as well.

    Now this morning android system is using less 2% of my battery....I think thats the way it used to be, well when the phones been sleeping anyway. I didnt do anything, it was still happening when I went to bed wth 17% left of that 3500 mah monster. Last reboot was about 6pm last night when I tried to plug in headphones and the music started skipping then locked up the phone so hard I had to pull the battery. Any ideas would be welcome, keep in mind i have the auto brightness off, and I've reloaded once already. It'll be wonderful if it stays "fixed" but I aint holding my breath.

    So is the "sensor" spare parts lists the light sensor that is near the ear piece, or does it also include the sensor that tells whether or not to change from portrait or landscape? Just curious

    It was "fixed" but I never truley found out what was hogging the sensor. After i pulled the battery that last time it was ok, then shortly after I think I installed leak 3 so who knows. Could of been a bug in the leak
