You have an app keeping your phone from sleeping,its no heads up for anyone else,unless of course someone else has this and does not know why.

There are apps on market to show you what is keeping your device awake.There is BetteBatteryStats and CPU spy,probably more but that's off the top of my head.

edit: I think only BetterBatteryStats will show what's causing problem,but CPU spy will give you details of sleep/no. sleep.

I checked battery use and found google maps was top with 42%.

I've forced that app to stop, but i'm thinking it could be a setting that says something like 'allow google to receive data' (not sure of exact wording), but can't for the life of me find where that is to change it.

I think last time i saw it was when initially adding a gmail account.

Any ideas?

goodfella, its probably the privacy and security section or the backup section.

Or if you are rooted, use Lbe Privacy to revoke permissions

Google Maps,no suprise there.

You would think google apps would be android friendly,but they love to wake up on you.

I use rom toolbox pro to freeze a lot of apps,google maps being one of them.Rom toolbox pro also has startup manager that works well:

Mine lasted 3 days with no charge on B888.

What I do, is I stop non essential services and apps from starting on boot or by themselves by using the Startup Manager of ES Task Manager. That and ES File Explorer are incredibly useful apps. You will need root for the Startup manager though.

I've had no problems with the out of the box Vodafone build regarding battery life, but after upgrading it to the B888 firmware my battery life has nose dived. A full charge will not even last 24 hours now.

I went through all the settings last night and unchecked any of the background data stuff. Although I don't actually use a mobile data connection anyway, just the wireless through my home router, and I only switch that on and off when I need to use it.

I'll see how it holds up today with the settings alterations I made last night.

Turning off the background data syncing and the google data backup, seems to have cured my battery problems. I'm frankly amazed they used so much power, especially considering I have my phone locked onto a 2G network, you wouldn't think they'd work at all.
