    Tasker and / or odd battery behavior

    I am just thinking out loud. *If anyone has any insight, please add your thoughts.


    rooted Droid X




    I have two issues that may be related:*


    1) *'Display' is killing my battery life. *What makes this odd is that the screen will be off for 100% of the time since I disconnected from charger, battery status will be lower (70%, give or take), and 'Display' will take credit (blame) for using 85% +- of the battery. *Does that make sense?


    2) I have Tasker installed, with several basic profiles running. *I __think__ I may have noticed item #1 after installing Tasker. *I may be wrong. *Or it may be a coincidence. *Anyway. *I went to bed ast night with screen, BT, GPS, auto-sync, and WIFI off, battery at 50%. *This AM, my alarm failed to sound bc battery was dead. *I can't think of what could be running to kill the battery in less than 6 hours with everything turned off.


    It seems something claiming to be 'display' is 1) not the same 'Display' that I know, and 2) is killing the battery. *


    If or how Tasker plays into this I don't know. *I am reading whatever threads I can find.


    Anyone notice anything similar?

    Not yet. *Looking for a more specific cause and solution. *Trying to monitor with a reduced number of profiles first. *None of the ones I deleted had anything to do with the display. *but who knows..

    have you read the thread on the battery draining bug? Sometimes just turning the GPS/Satelite usage off isn't enough... you have to restart you phone as well. that made a HUGE difference for me. I don't have Tasker so I have no idea if that could be causing the problem. I'm thinking of getting it eventually though, so I'm interested if this is part of the problem.

    good luck
    Thx, scott

    A large part of this is Tasker. I work from 7:30 to 5:00 every week day and charge my phone at night. Prior to installing Tasker, I would have at least 80% left at 5:00. After installing, my phone would not turn on when I checked it after work. This scared me because I thought something was wrong with my phone because the battery couldn't possibly be dead. Same thing next day. Drained it from 100% to nothing within 9.5 hours. Uninstalled Tasker and haven't had a problem since.

    Uninstalled Stasker.


    Something caused phone to be physically hot while sitting on my desk late friday night. Was down to 30% battery level within 3 hrs.


    Auto brightness turned off. display set to about 30%.


    Monday morning 12:01a:* Battery charged to 100%. *GPS, AutoSync, WiFi, BT turned off; unplugged from charger. *Monday morning 6a. *Battery at 50%. *Display claims to have used 38% (meaning 19% of total battery life) while _off_.


    I do not understand.


    I have now renamed all bloatware to original file name and unrooted. *may also uninstall LauncherPro.


    Anyone with thoughts?

    I finally reset phone to factory defaults. *Have slowly been adding apps and widgets. *I actually had a functioning phone for nearly 40 hours (yes. *one charge) this past weekend. *Vast improvement from the 4 hours I was receiving before reset.


    I have not yet re-installed tasker. *But I do not think tasker was the causing the original problem. *I will post back shortly.

    i have tasker installed with around 15 different profiles with about 3 or 4 active profiles at any given time.

    i have never seen tasker take up any energy from the battery. the wifi/gps/etc checks are all default except for the display off timing which is set for 5 minutes.

    my problem with the battery being drained overnight has always been the gps issue (and lately launcherpro/adw but that's uninstalled)
