    Turn off GPS and Geolocation - and just type in your location.

    In addition to the good suggestion about GPS (geolocation is not a big battery consumer), check to see how often you have it updating (every 3 hours should be enough). Also, are you using the BW live wallpaper, if so check the Fps settings, etc.

    I use BW with geolocation and it doesn't even show up in my battery status (program usage)

    Yup the GPS will draw the most with BW. Geolocation shouldn't, but then again I can never get my geolocation to work locally between towns that are 30 minutes apart......so I just use a zipcode.

    I have mine set to geolocation and to update every 3 hours. I am also using the BW LWP. Even with that BW is only taking up 2% of my battery usage.
