    Had my Desire for about 6 wks and love it.Always been a bit bemused when ive read the battery threads because mine has always been really good.......until now:mad:.I had it back from HTC on Wed so am still gtting apps and sorting out my set up etc.Went too bed at 11 last night with 55% battery.All wi-fi etc switched off.Woke up late because my alarm never went off:mad: to find the phone off cos the battery had gone:thinking:.What the hell could be draining my battery that quick when its just sat doing nothing:thinking:.


    My next problem is a bookmark one.I have the large bookmark widget on one of my pages.I have Dolphin as my browser.I have managed to delete all the stock bookmarks in the widget(twitter etc)and have left just google.My problem is adding new ones to the widget:thinking:.If i go to the bookmark page i have google and Add widget to choose from.If i add an address it does not appear on the front page,but if i then open google >menu>bookmarks it is there??.

    Any thoughts????

    battery could be an app running in the background like for example a gps app or instant messenger pulling data all night. try closing all app before you go to bed, and also try putting the phone in airplain mode over night. There is an app called spareparts on the market that will tell you whats been using your battery.

    add the bookmark in the web browser, and it will show in the widget.
    so go to the browser, go to the page you want bookmarked, hit menu/bookmarks/add boomark (or whatever the browser says), the bookmarks should now be in the widget, if not try removing the widget and re adding it to the screen.

    Don't forget that airplane mode turns off all wireless signals, so no phone calls or messages either.

    Yep, but no one calls me during the night anyway, so it doesnt bother me.

    Do you use Flickr? That is a known battery killer.

    I have been going through my apps and deleted the sky news/sport app yesterday and it made a big difference on my battery over night.Hopefully this was the drain and i will now go back to a decent battery life.:)
