    i go to applications > running services > then i click on calendarsyncaddapter and it takes me to accounts and sync settings. all the other services a screen pops up asking if i want to shut down that app. so once again i uncheck everything, but when i click to manage my gmail account sync, nothing is checked but the rotating arrows are spinning next to the calendar and the latest time it was synced is always the current time because its constantly running. when i click the calendar sync it says it sync for this item is currently disabled. which i dont understand because its obviously running , and its still at the top of the list of battery use

    1. can i just remove the calendar?
    2. should i try a different rom?

    I've has the same thing happen to me and went through all of the steps mentioned. No matter what, even if I got the sync to stop, it would re-start within seconds. FINALLY, when in the gmail account sync setting (contacts, gmail, calendars) I had the same spinning sync symbol next to calendar option. While it is spinning hit the menu button and you should see "cancel sync" option. When I touched "cancel", the spinning sync icon finally disappeared. Now my battery is no longer draining down like crazy. I believe this is buggy, b/c at first the symbol did not go away, but stopped spinning, and I had to activate again, and then menu/cacel sync/cancel. It worked for me.
