Default Why is phone "awake" so much?

So I just looked at my battery usage and notices that my phone has been "awake" for such a long time. I know I haven't used it much at all today. Anybody have an idea why this is?

I would upload the screenshot, but its telling me that the file has the wrong extension. ???

I have a huge battery drain (about 60%) by OS Android proccess even in the standby mode. I don't know what to do with this ****. From 100% to 0% it takes about 6 hours my phone dies in standby mode (with CM9 rom), with stock rom my phone lives in standby mode about 2-3 days.

Sounds like you have a rouge app(s). Download Better Battery Stats and CPU Spy. Read their respective threads to understand how to use them. There are threads where people will help you interpret the logs these provide.

Android OS only reports such high values in ICS because it includes screen on time.

Did you download better battery stats and CPU spy? Look in the ATT Galaxy S II thread. There's a pretty good known battery drain thread. My idle drain is less than 2% part hour. My deep sleep is over 95% when idle. Has to be a rogue app.

I charged mine and let it sit for 7 hours. With wifi set to always on, I get 11% drain overall, 92% deep sleep and 6% at 192.
