    Recent battery drainage problem - Droid X

    I have a Droid X running Android version 2.3.3. My battery run-time has gone down about 50% over the last week. I have three batteries and this drop occurs with all three. Now, I get about 6 hours of run-time per battery before I have to switch to a new battery or charge the battery in the phone. I have not changed any of my settings or added any apps in the last week. Blue-tooth, WiFi and GPS are off. The brightness on my display is set for about 30%.

    Main Battery Usage is as follows:
    com.motorola.service.ma 45%
    Phone idle 19%
    Cell standby 14%
    Display 12%
    Android OS 4%

    What could be causing this sudden decrease in battery run-time and how do I correct it?
    Thanks.
    Richard

    Looks like it could be a stock system app that keeps running. Are you rooted?

    Try charging the phone completely. With the charger still plugged in, pull the battery out. In a few seconds you'll see a picture of a battery with a question mark in it. Put the battery back in, the icon will start at 5% and eventually go up to 100. Take it off the charger, power it back on, and see if that helps. If so, you might have to do that for each battery.

    Try what skennelly said. But normally display should be the highest, not system.

    If the system should not be the highest, is there anything I can do about it?
    Thanks again.

    Problem solution

    I found the culprit to my problem. When I clicked Settings>Battery & Data Manager>Battery Usage>com.motorola.service.ma, I discovered that Microsoft Exchange Services was listed as an included package of com.motorola.service.ma. I then remembered that I had recently turned on "Data Push" for my Microsoft Exchange based email. I then unchecked "Data Push" in the email settings for my Microsoft Exchange based email so that my phone used the "Data Fetch" schedule. After about 12 hours, I checked the Battery Usage settings of my phone. The.com.motorola.service.ma item went from about 45% battery usage to about 8%. My battery life returned to normal.
