    Now i am using "Where's My Droid" to find my Desire in case i will loose it.
    I usualy keep GPS turned OFF but this app need it ON to work.
    What i need is an app that will automaticly turn on the GPS and turn it off after the locator procedure goes to end.

    So does anyone know how Wachdroid works in that case?

    I've never tested one that turns it on. Even when they say they do. Just leave gps on. If its not showing in status bar, its not using power

    Doesn't GPS usually work that way?

    You can enable it, but it only works when an app needs it. The moment it doesn't need it anymore, it's not used.

    Lookout does this though, it can enable GPS when requested through their website. There is a downside if you're just looking up a few things on Maps and it uses your GPS all the time, or it tries to give you the weather but uses your GPS for it. That's using power.
