I had a quick question. yesterday I was at a bar in the basement and wasnt getting data or signal. i noticed that while my phone kept searching for signal/data it was dropping a percent every couple minutes. Is there a way to make it stop searching? i know APn works for data, but what about signal? Just something to make it stop when im in an area (underground) where I know I will not get service.

Put your phone in flight mode perhaps?

#1 and #3 data traffic
#2 audio: if you were listing to music obviously not a problem
#3 wifi wakeups
#4 only then userland

Of course #1 and #3 are an indirect effect of apps but may also be related to bad reception that you seemed to have.
My hints:
- don't leave wifi on when you don't use it: it causes a huge overhead
- get rid of the facebook client, it's known to cause large amount of wakeups
- check your yahoomail settings and see if other user have bad experience with that client. Test another one if required
- something has caused a huge amount of notifications (>2000) while you were using your phone. Those wakelocks are not the cause but a symptom of something waking up your phone very often

Thanks for reply.

I use WiFi when I am at work and at home and totally disable Packet Data when I use WiFi. So I leave WiFi on so that I can recieve my whatsapp messages and emails. Many say wifi uses much less battery that 3G or GPRS/EDGE. If i set wifi to be on only while screen is on and also have my packet data disabled, will i still recieve notifications while my phone is in my pocket? or will they only come through once my screen goes on and wifi is resumed so to say.

I have tried FriendCaster, alas I prefer the standard Facebook app, I am willing to sacrifice a bit of battery for this. Its not much though.

I cannot seem to find a setting to specify at what intervals to scan for new yahoo emails.

May i ask where you can see that something has caused my phone to wake up >2000 times?

I'm lucky to get 15 hours out of my phone. I've attached a dump and would really appreciate someone taking a look if possible please.

Thanks

I named it in my post yesterday. If you can't find that post, just Google that name, it's the first result.

You may want to try "Touch Client for Facebook"

Thanks for the suggestion but I think I'll pass on this application. Too many bad reviews around the web and the features are lacking. Also doesn't look as nice as the original facebook application imo.

Hey mate, I managed to find the time to go on airplane mode for about 3-odd hours to take an idle dump. Apparently, during the couple of hours, AlarmManager still registered pretty highly. Any advice?

Does anything look out of the ordinary? Phone is sleeping properly according to the battery usage chart and CPU spy, but I'm not 100% sure. That "show key guard" thing I can't find anything online with solid info.
