    I've had my Droid since day 1 of release. I have the GPS enabled for Navigation, but the GPS indicator (icon at the top) would not ever show unless I was using Navigation, Maps or some app that was actively using GPS. Over the last week or so I've noticed that every time I wake the phone from sleep that the GPS indicator is showing and remains there for a few seconds, then goes away. If I manually put my phone back into sleep mode, and then wake it up, it's there again. Sometimes it actually seems like it is off, then when I wake the phone up by pushing the power button it comes on it appears, then I unlock the phone and it turns off.

    Current running apps:
    Android Keyboard
    Android System
    Beautiful Widgets
    Bluetooth Share
    bTunes
    Bump
    Calendar Storage
    Calendar
    Clock
    com.android.providers.ap (then it is cut off. It has 0.00 for all of it's data/use/size)
    com.android.providers.user(also cut off)
    Contacts Storage
    Dialer
    Dialer Storage
    Facebook
    Gallery
    Gmail
    Google Services Framework
    Launcher
    Maps
    Music Junk
    Pandora
    SetCPU
    Settings
    Settings Storage
    Voice Search




    Running Services:
    BluetoothService (Pandora)
    PlayerService (bMusic)
    BumpService (Bump)
    ProfilesService (SetCPU)
    EngineService (Music Junk)
    DockService (Settings)
    Google Messaging Service (Google Services Framework)
    BluetoothOppService (Bluetooth Share)
    BluetoothPbapService (Bluetooth Share)
    Android Keyboard (Android Keyboard)


    I killed the Maps Service and app, on a hunch, and it still does it. I am running a rooted 2.2.1 phone.
