    I didn't have any issues. I am getting good battery life. 18-24 hrs with moderate use.

    On RC3 it as not good but with final version it is much better

    I have pretty poor battery life and have tried everything except a wipe, different kernels, different SetCPU setups, task managers, new battery, etc. I don't think I've wiped since 5.0.8, and have been through all the RC's and now the final of CM6.

    I was beginning to think wiping is the next option for me.

    Maybe even try another ROM but I don't want to loose the features of CM. Others have reported better battery life with other ROMs. The only issue with that is that for every one of those people, there is another person that says CM gave them better battery life. So in my book, that's just a healthy bit of statistical error.

    If you are willing to put the time in, there is an app that might be able to help you troubleshoot where you might be getting a drain. It is called Droidwall, and it is essentially a firewall for the droid that will let you customize so that you can invoke the wall, and only allow certain apps of your choosing to connect to the web and data. CM6 is the first rom that I have tried where the program is functional.

    I have been up for 9 hours 53 minutes with only 30% battery drain, with some emails, a few calls, some web browsing this morning, and the display on for quite a while, and oc'd to 1200 (p3's). Today I was in an area with poor data and phone reception, so I turned on the wall with only email, gmail, google voice and the phone radio. Basic functionality I need for my job, with zero extra.

    So far so good. The program is great in that you can set up a white list (allow) or black list (block), which is kinda neat depending on which way you want to control. And if you are willing to put in the extended time to test, you will certainly be able to nail any rogue apps.

    Andrew,

    Sounds like you have sorted things out. Great. I am in the wipe AND factory reset 3 times before any new rom, and I have never had battery issues with anyone's work. As a matter of fact, wiping and factory resetting before any new rom has kept me from having many of the issues folks report on new installations. CM6 is a pretty cool rom, my first in a long time that is not just a stocked and themed version of the latest OTA, and I am pretty excited about it. About like having a new phone.

    Good luck,

    Craig

    @andrew149, in your sig, you say you're running P3's 800mhz. Is that SV or LV? 125 or 250?

    J,

    The primary function of this app is to completely block the phone with regard to the apps of your choice. The reason why I said if you have the time is that what you would have to do is create your white or black list, add or delete apps, and check over the course of a day or so to see how your battery life results with various apps shut down from data. Obviously this will not show you if you have a runaway app with regard to internal memory, but you can now check particular apps to see if they have a runaway data situation.

    The approach I have taken is to use a white list (allow) and uncheck every app that is not a core function for me. In my case I have email, gmail, google voice and a few other core components with allowed access. Then what I have been doing is using my other programs, noting which ones give me any errors upon use. For example, maps or browser will give you a network connection error. This is obvious.

    What are not so obvious are apps with adds, or perhaps apps that might be doing something with data in the background. If you recall back to when you install an app, it lists what services it will need. Many will say network connections, but do you really want your text editing app or other strictly on phone app to have network resources?

    This is not an easy way, but again Droidwall was designed for security, and it is my belief that you can also use it to control other aspects of the phone, and how they could affect your battery. You could also just shut data down, but then you have no email or gmail, or perhaps market updates. This way you can isolate each app, without sacrificing core app accessibility. And the program has a widget which is a toggle on and off, for ease of implementation.

    Craig
