I'm sure this subject has been ran into the ground, but I still haven't seen a straight forward answer. I fully charged my Droid X, unplugged it, and didn't use it for 3 hours. no txt, no surfing, no talking. Looking at the phone the battery was then at 15%. Battery usage screen says Display- 38% Cell standby- 31% Phone idle- 10% Gps is turned OFF Wi Fi is turned OFF The other night I went to bed with it fully charged, and like an idiot thought I could use it for an alarm clock. Needless to say it died sometime during the night. I now use my old ENV 3 for an alarm. while the Droid sits on life support at night. Where do I check for and control other running programs? Is this as good as it gets? If so, I have a brand new Droid X paperweight for sale.
