    Arrow Battery Problem???

    alright guys, i just got my droid 2 global yesterday and i am absolutly thrilled with it! its great! BUT, the battery drains super fast. I got advanced task killer and set the setting to kill when its auto kill level is crazy and auto kill frequency is when screen is off. After i kill everything it all comes back in a few minutes even if i dont open anything The battery only lasts about 5 hours. and i only use it for like 1 hour and 4 on standby. The brightness is at like 0. i looked online for solutions but they didnt help. im at home so the phone is hooked up to wi-fi.
    I really like this phone and i dont want to return it because of the battery.

    What Ag3nt X said. ATK is MAJOR bad news for Android.

    Where do I find the Task Killer that is already on my phone? Is it called something else?

    I don't understand why apps like the camera don't have a "Close" or "Quit" option. The only way to exit seems to be hitting the 'back' key which seems to leave the app running and draining the battery.

    Did you read the link I gave you? Task killers are bad.

    Even that one. And the other one. And any other one. ALL OF THEM. Yes, that one too.

    Task killers are bad!

    go to settings then applications then running services from there you can force stop any app you like.

    Seems to, yes.

    Funny, it doesn't actually do that. I wonder if anyone posted a link earlier this this thread to a different thread that has the answer on how Android works so you don't have to worry about that...
