    Weird battery drain issue

    Hi there,

    Had my Atrix since the end of September, and until about 3 weeks ago I've been experiencing weird battery drain. For the first couple of weeks it was fine. Data always on, music (Spotify offline playlists) for an hour in the morning and in the afternoon, auto-sync of email, Aix weather widget updating every 2 hours but as far as I know, nothing else is pulling any data automatically from the internet (no automatic Twitter / Facebook / news etc updates, I do them all manually). I use Whatsapp quite alot during the day and recently I've had Wordfeud going but I wouldn't have thought they'd make *that* much difference. Anyway, previously, when I first got the phone, I'd use the phone in the EXACT same way, and after work my battery would be around 60-70%. Now, it's more like 40-30%. To my knowledge I've not changed my usage patterns in any way so I am wondering what's causing the issue. I have *a lot* of apps downloaded, so it could be a rogue app I guesss.

    When looking at battery stats and such, I find the following:
    Display, 48% (I have it on auto brightness, but I could change it I guess?)
    Android system, 12%
    Phone idle, 6%
    (and then various other apps which are probably okay)

    In spare parts battery history:
    other usage since last unplugged, running 80%; screen 46.7%
    partial wake usage since last unplugged, UID 1001 and Android system are both about 1/4 blue

    I downloaded CPU Spy to see if my phone was actually entering deep sleep and it shows deep sleep for only 19% of the time, so I'm wondering if there's an app I can download which would tell me what exactly is keeping my phone from sleeping.

    Ideas appreciated and any advice would be amazing!

    Thanks.

    Forgot to add, it's a UK Atrix with T-Mobile, Froyo, I've not rooted or anything so it's still completely stock.

    Go to setting/battery and data/data delivery/social applications and set it to sink over wifi only, see how that works. Download "Android Boster", it will monitor all aspects of your phone usage.

    Thanks. Downloaded this and it's monitoring now, currently saying 52% of battery is being consumed by apps and the top app is "FOTA" which I assume is some background Motorola thing. Any way I can turn this off? I presume I can't.

    FOTA is Firmware Over The Air. I'm far from an expert, and hopefully someone will correct me if I'm wrong. I don't know why that would be running, if your not updating the OS, unless it's checking for updates. 52% by apps seems high, but that could be because of the FOTA, I guess. I've never seen mine over 20%. Unfortunately I don't how to help you sort this out, and I'll stop babbling now.........

    Bump is an application, un-install it and reinstall again. Or keep it off if you want.

    Lol. Sorry rob. I couldn't help but laugh.

    Bump means he's bringing this thread from the bowels of thread-dom up to the top so people see it again.

    I just learned something today, until now I had NO IDEA why people put bump at the start of some comments.
