    is the cpu behavior you mentioned part of stock android behavior ? if so, using setcpu may interfere with that .... so i should shoot a question over to the developer about this.

    thanks for this. just found this thread after reading and posting this in another shorter one.

    i had a d1 which i loved. upgraded to d2g. not exactly a newbie with this stuff, but at this point, to do testing, i have swithced back to my d1. I am not a heavy user, but I have every radio on, bt, wfi, gps. I have about 10 min of call a day, 10 texts, use touchdown with activesync to get emails. I don't reply on the phone, but do check it when away from my desk. my d1 normally goes 24 hours before running out.

    I have my d2g just sitting with wifi on. rooted. setcpu set to max of 1ghz. have bt, gps off. wifi will check emails of course, but i don't turn the screen on. i do have enable data to on however. phone lasts maybe 8 hours just sitting on my desk. i don't touch it. un acceptable. . shouldn't i get more than 8 hrs without it doing anythng?! I shouldn't have to purchase an extended battery to have the phone last 8hr essentially in standby. will try to turn off data, but thought this would prevent me from getting updates and email.

    would really like to keep this d2g as i love the speed, no lags, and global.

    a. does anyone know if the d2, not global has this issue? I do have the gms radio turned off, but i thought this is the only diff between phones.
    b. i am going to return this phone to vzw for another one to see if it fixes it. can't think of anything else.

    Please let me know if your new D2G still has the problem. If the new one doesn't, I'm returning mine to Verizon as well.

    I'm becoming convinced many of us have defective Droid 2 Globals.

    Well, I've had one for about a week now. Im not that happy with battery life. But I understand it. Use the task manager to kill the alps running in background. Also turn the backlight on the screen down. These phones are powered by a lot bigger engine than were used to. V8. Compared to a fuel efficient hybrid. Ill take the trade

    There's nothing wrong with your phone. It's all in usage and how your phone is set up. That one day nine hours was full of doing almost nothing. The highest use is screen (that's normal), but the highest non-system user of battery was facebook at 2%. In that 1 day 9 hours, kenstar sent negligible texts, didn't play games, didn't make voice calls, etc etc.... If I just let my phone sit from 100%-15%, I bet I could pull 3 days out of it, easy.

    You don't understand. Some of us LET our phones sit doing NOTHING, with virtually all connectivity off, and we still burn through 10% per hour like this.

    I'm fairly certain some of the phones are defective.

    I'd say it's more likely that some combination of apps/settings that you have is radically different from what us more conservative users run. I posted my full setup, how does yours compare?
