    Flight mode kills battery

    Hi all
    this last 2 weeks I have been in an environment where I needed my atrix switched off, so the quick was I thought was to put the device in flight mode... but it seems that in this mode it uses more battery power than if left on! has anyone else experienced this?

    May want to try disabling WiFi, Data and/or Auto-Sync. Even when your phone doesn't have a cell signal, it may still try to get data updates through Data or WiFi. Airplane mode disables calls and texts radio. If you are going to be in that environment for a long period of time it may be easier just to power down the phone.
    The human brain is amazing. It starts as soon as you wake up and stops as soon as you get work.

    Flight mode should disable all radios... is this not the case? certainly apps cannot access the net while in flight mode.
    What is the point in having flight mode if wifi is not turned off?

    the problem was I was in jury service and in the 10 min breaks do not want to wait the 2 mins for the phone to start up. equally I would want use the device whilst flying - and wifi operating would not be good.
    We should not have to turn everything off manually - !

    I know when I turn on Airplane Mode all my radios are turned off, but I can turn them back on individually if I choose. Though, just testing it out, it does not deactivate GPS.

    It's very odd that it would pull more battery, it should pull a lot less. We actually had a user test this and left it on airplane mode for days and the battery did not die. I know he turned off everything he could find, though.

    Did you look in your Battery Manager to see if you could tell what was eating battery? Maybe the screen didn't turn off?
