Hi all

I used my Nexus as a alarm clock last night and put the nexus in aeroplane mode overnight. It was on 67% battery at 11pm when I went to sleep, when the alarm work me up at 6.30 the battery was at 55%.

Does this seem a bit it excessive?

Airplane mode doesn't stop apps from draining battery. I run cleanrom with wifi on all the time and get better standby, so i would install something like better battery stats or wakelock detector to see whats causing drain.

I always sleep with airplane mode on. It drains about 2 to 4% (top) on 8 hours. Used Waterlock detector with grenefy (with advanced features) to optimize it a long time ago.

I've had better luck just turning off WiFi itself instead of using airplane mode when putting the tablet to sleep. I know it's counterintuitive, but it seems to drain the battery far less.
