    How do you disable the gps or remove the satellite icon from draining battery?

    I noticed it turned on (satellite icon) without my input/

    Yes, I am aware of the task killer app but when I look into the running applications in the Settings I do not seeing anything referring to the gps.

    Thanks! :icon_ banana:

    The easiest way is to put the Power Control widget on your home screen (Menu > Add > Widgets > Power Contorl) and you can click that Satellite icon on the widget.

    That will toggle the GPS satellite status.
