    My Camera did that they other day. Used it for like thirty seconds and two days later, Camera was still on the top of the list... lol

    Dunno, just cycled the power and all is well.

    This sounds like a good time to use Advanced Task Killer.

    I haven't had any problems since I started to use ADW.Launcher... well except for the 50% without signal bug... stupid 2.1 OTA...

    I had the issue with the camera using 90% of battery - even after I shut it down. It didn't appear as an active task either. Restarting the phone worked until I used the camera again. The factory reset seems to have fixed it.

    I noticeds that, some apps that are free, specifically those with in-app ads turn the gps on. Likkely because they use location based ads. Best thing to do is get a gps-killswitch widget. Plenty of them in the market.

    I just noticed my battery says "96% Android System, 2% Cell Standyby, and 2% Phone idle"
    Is this how it should be?
    I am getting GREAT battery life and my uptime/awake times are where they should be.
