    It was doing that while on the charger, right? Mine does it too while on charge once the charge level has reached 100% and charging has stopped. I speculate it has to do with how it monitors battery levels so it knows when to resume charging. Its nothing to worry about.

    Mine was doing this one day last week. I couldn't figure out what might be causing it. I rebooted, then it stopped.

    stopping all apps in the background could be a good way

    So a reboot stopped it for you, mattman? I wonder what app or service was causing it. :blink:

    This was happening to me on .211, have not seen it on .215 course I did uninstall GoLauncher and all other Go products since upgrading to .215. So maybe it was related to GO?

    Yeah, I was wondering about that also. But I was at work and didn't feel like taking the time to investigate. After the reboot fixed it, I never even thought about it again until I saw this post.

    Humor me... turn off your phone and remove the SD card. NOT THE SIM. use a pencil eraser and gently clean the contacts with the eraser. The blow off any debris and reinstall it.

    Also, go to vzw and get another sim card.

    Idk if this is your issue. But my wifes phone just started this yesterday...this cured it.

    Hope this helps :)

    Check SMS app settings. I use GoSMS and there's a seeing that turns screen on when you get a message. I'm not sure if Handcent has such a seeing, but whatever app you use to receive messages, check for "screen on or screen unlock when receiving message" setting.

    After the ICS upgrade my Maxx was doing that as well. A fdr fixed it for a month or so, but now it's doing it again. VERY annoying. :angry:

    Hey guys,

    After some messing around I beleive I might know at least one of the causes of this.

    It's the duplicate email account check applicaiton.

    freezing it with Ti addresses the issue.

    I have seen for gingerbread that pocket detection was doing this. Try disabling that and see.
