    Look at this picture.

    Note that it says it was unplugged for 9 hours at the top of the screen shot. I unplugged my phone right before I went to sleep, at a full charge. I woke up and the battery was at 70%, with the breakdown in usage what it shows in the picture. Why does "idle" and "cell standby" use SOOOOOO much more?!?!? Anyone else experiencing this?

    That's not abnormal. If you use the phone more those will drop like a rock.

    I disagree. The phone shouldn't lose 30% from just sitting there.... it didn't do that before 2.2

    I also have noticed my battery since the 2.2 upgrade getting the life sucked out of it within 10 minutes after being removed from power. When I look at the battery usage like you show in your picture, I don't see the idle usage as high as yours, but my Android System usage is over 50%...
    I would think that if you have it charging all night, and it is only sitting idle, then the bar for idle would be higher than the others. I don't think that your battery should be any less than 100% when it has been charging all night. I think there is something up with the new upgrade. Something is draining our power. I looked all through my apps and removed any that would be getting updates (excpet my mail) and it still seems to suck the life out of my battery. I hope someone comes up with a fix soon. I already bought a second battery to keep this thing running when I am out and about.
