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.
- 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?
