    Craig,

    thanks for reading. yeah, i went through all that. I am 10 feet from my wireless router and have 5 bars on VZW with strong 3G (tower near by). GPS off and but the phone would not sleep.

    I bit the bullet yesterday and did a reset and wiped all data. I got compcache and the OC running first then started to install a few apps. Went to bed @ 90% battery and woke up to 90% battery!

    Spare parts confirmed the phone slept all night (on 3G). It appears that on WiFi the phone does not sleep. I have the sleep setting (advanced wifi) set to when screen is off.

    I will install my apps a few at a time and monitor the sleeping habits of the phone :)

    I have a feeling this is going to be great once i get it set!

    Itch,

    Have you tried playing with the wifi sleep policy settings in Spare Parts? Perhaps choosing a different toggle will help. I went through the thread you linked, and those folks are all over the place as the "reason". Wifi to Launcherpro. It is a worthwhile read as there is good information, but my take is that no one solution seemed to work for everyone.

    craig,

    i don't see wifi setting in spare parts. the only sleep function is the pwr button. I have that set to sleep when pressed. with wifi on and that set it still does not sleep. bizzare...

    I know that thread was all over the place i was just referencing it since others were having a problem...no solution but i am not alone :(

    with wifi off battery seems great. the phone is sleeping again.

    you know anything about rack and pinions in cars? lol...having car troubles too

    Itch,

    The only thig I know about rack and pinion is that in my work truck mine needs work, that will have to wait until work picks up.....new phone - truck repair? Truck repair - new phone? The new dual core phones have my attention.

    In my version of spare parts there is a wifi sleep policy setting. I just checked and it looks like I may have nuked the spare parts in CM6.1.2 and downloaded the market version.
