Since i switched to Maclaw's CM 11 about a month ago and i had no trouble with the phone untill i updated to version 3/8 and the versions after that..the battery gets drained fast even when the phone is always underclocked to 200 MHz which never made an issue for me in terms of being a bit slow.
It used to drop just 1% every 15 min with heavy data use..a lot of the time it even lasted more than that! Now drops 1% every 5 min or less with the same heavy data use!!!

What went wrong?

It's just CM 11. Remember, it's still under heavy development, so it's not 100% yet. Don't worry, they'll get it fixed.

I do hope they do.
Does Carbon has that battery drain problem too or is more stable than CM?

My battery lasts the whole day with moderate use.

I have the same problem, but haven't tracked down what it is that that drains the battery other than Android system.

Yeah but something changed after that 3/25 version. I've updated to the latest version yesterday and will put it under test today; hopefully the problem will be gone.

Got a lot better with Carbon without doing any more scientific research into what was eating my battery. If you still have CM installed, maybe a simple "top -m 10" in an adb shell will give a clue to what the power drain is. (I'm new to adb and forget how easy it is can be to have a linux shell on my phone. )

hey thank you so far, i just got CM 2 days and i'm not sure about the battery drain so far. but if you found out what it was at you, please tell me. ah and btw. i heard skype has an issue with it, do you have it installed?

also: whats the differencte of CARBON from CM?

/edit: I tried the parameter, and it says 94% sorta is "system server" is this normal?
