    10% battery drop doing nothing!!!

    This morning I was coming off a full overnight charge and my battery has dropped from 100 to 90% in 1.5 hours and it was sitting on my desk with the screen off and nothing running! I checked the battery usage and the top three were the display at 29%, cell standby at 28% and phone idle at 18%. Is that normal?????

    Yes, the battery will slowly drain back down towards 90% while on charge and then when it reachs 90% it starts to charge again.

    It wasn't on the charger. I had taken it off the charger and went to work. I'm just surprised at the 10% drop and I wasn't really using it. Should those top 3 pull it down that fast?

    I just meant that it probably wasnt really at 100% when you unplugged it so that makes sense.

    Ihad the same problem with mine. WOuldnt make it through 4 hrs of work. It may be a new app you just installed. I uninstalled a bunch of stuff and mine started working correctly. Not sure exactly what app it was but the sync symbol stayed in my notification bar all the time.

    I uninstalled

    Winamp
    app tracker
    and stop media service

    Not sure if this will help but what i did. You just have to find the app you installed.

    I had tried Juice Defender last week and it seemed to pull the battery down even faster. I uninstalled it Saturday. Doesn't my top 3 indicate I've turned off everything I can????

    Unless the device is off, power use is expected.

    Juice defender works great for me, you just have to adjust the settings to what works for you. I generally keep mine on extreme.. I don't need constant twitter, facebook updates pushing to my phone what I need is a phone that will work. With liberty and the new battery tweak I'm getting around 20 hrs of battery life in between charges.

    To The OP, this happens to me pretty much every day, I think it is normal.

    The first 10% drop going fast is normal.
