    Well I picked up my Droid X while it was charging and it felt warm, I figured it was because it was charging..

    But I just picked up my phone and woke it up from standby (not plugged in) and it was warm? It was on standby for 3 hours and the battery was in the orange/30% charged?

    I'm new to the droid x, is this a common problem?

    Note: Nothing was left on like WiFi or GPS, the screen was off and everything for 3 hrs.

    Mine does that too I think that's why the battery drains so fast and I have the extended battery! What fixes this problem?

    Mine does not behave like that. It's always cool to the touch when I have not been using it. Are you absolutely sure something is not running in the background?

    Well when I go under settings, application, running applications, there are like 10 different things running, not like Droid1 were it was a few.
    but every time I close say VerizonSync thing, it reopens, same with skype, among others.

    Ok I just took my Droid X out of my pocket and it's burning up while on standby?

    This is the 4th time I have touched it when in standby and it's very warm if not hot?

    WTF is going on?

    I would definitely say it is the Task Killer. It is not needed. I have over 30 apps running on my X at all times. The only time you need to kill an app is when it is acting crazy. Uninstall the Task Killer and let your phone just chill and do nothing, then see what happens.

    Nope, I removed task killer about 4 days ago.

    I also just removed Lookout Security to see if that was the problem..

    Kinda sucks if that was the reason, Lookout is a great program to back stuff up and if the phone is lost, help find it.

    Go to Settings, Battery Manager, Touch for usage statistics, and see what the phone thinks is using the most power. That should indicate what's running/using most of your power.

    If nothing is really running, then I suggest you have a defective battery or phone and need to get it replaced.

    I have the same encounter and I dont use Task killer but I do use Lookout. Theres obviously something running in the backround but when I check nothing looks to really standout. My phone gets hot in idle all the time...and so did my last phone

    Try the Watchdog app. It'll let you know if any apps are hogging your resources.
