    Why does the youmail app not let my phone sleep?

    Background: Installed youmail app, realized battery was going FAST. Looked at awake time and it was 100%. Uninstalled all apps since the awake time debacle.

    Awake time returns to normal. Re-install only youmaill app, awake time goes back to 100%. Go into preferences or settings, whatever and set for NO polling at all unless requested, no notifications, nothing. Awake time still 100%.

    Un-install youmail, awake time back to normal.

    I really like the app and the widget, someone tell me there is a way to fix this. I would like to re-install and use this app.

    I have been looking for a fix for this all week. I have finally decided it is a flaw in YouMail's programming or something. The only fix that I have found...is not a great one but it's what I've decided to do and still use YouMail.

    I have deleted the app on my Eris and made a label in GMail named YouMail. I have a filter sent to that label that includes the words "youmail" with attachments. I went to youmail's website and chose the option to send an email with mp3 attachment to my gmail. I don't get the "cool" app but then again that "cool" app was ripping my battery a new one. It's a small fix until YouMail fixes this issue on their end. Good luck and I hope this helps!
