That actually works for you? I've been trying to do it but nothing happens.
Nevermind, it just decided to start working. Odd...

I just installed cm7 and am very pleased so far. However, I am noticing a significant battery drain compared to Blur. Is this anything anyone else is experiencing? If so, any fixes or is there something in the works from the CM team. Thanks a billion!

Give it a few days...the battery will get better. I would also suggest completely draining then recharging the battery until its been at 100% for 15 minutes.

Settings, applications, battery use.

Hmmm I think that is battery used while the screen locked and not in use. I've no idea how you'd regulate that other than turning the phone off altogether. Is phone idle draining more battery than your display? If so, that might be a problem.

No, phone idle has never used more battery than display. So I guess that's good. Lol. I've noticed lately tho, that if I turn data on, I can literally watch my battery percentage drop. I've calibrated. And completely drained and then charged (uninterrupted) the battery.
I like cm7 though. Has lots of really cool features, but my main purpose for getting it was better battery life. ( which wasn't bad on stock) again, any and all input is welcome!

How would that help if he has problems with data on? Not with it off. Also, juice defender does nothing more than turn off data connections when your screen is off or when you schedule it to. Its much more efficient to do it yourself.

It could be a problem with the driver. I have this issue too on my G2X.
