Was that from a full charge? I've never had that bad battery drain.

Yes. I turned my phone off for about an hour while I was in a dead zone after charging it. Waited till I got home to turn it back on.

One thing Ive noticed from these bat stat pictures that everyone posts is their cell standby %'s. They are always in the 15-20% range. Mine has never been that high. The highest ive ever seen it was 3% and it always at the bottom of the list.

That's because you're always using it!

You're right. That's how much battery is used by idling. The less your phone sleeps the smaller it will be.

I meant because you're always on your phone, so it doesn't get much sleep.

Yes everything gets switched to the SD card that can be.
Those 2 STweaks are set to those.

I dont have any battery issues that I know of. Battery seems to be pretty stable. Havent really been using the it to point where it could be an issue cause of the other issues. If I can get the other issues straight then I will worry about the battery. If no one has any idea on why this is happening... then I guess I will do a restore back to stock Gingerbread and that is the last thing I want to do.

I was having the same problem with words with friends. I had moved to my external sd before i upgraded from stock. Wwf was practicaly unplayable after i flashed SHOstocl3 and froze up quite a bit. Moved it over to internal sd card and it started playing the way it always did. I guess with the extra files on sd card ( rom/kernel) it made the game hard to read.
It is a very cheap sd card....

2 ) Games are not working. Tried Jewels Star, Words With Friends and Cut the Rope and they dont get past loading up?
3 ) The whole system seems to lag?
4 ) When I restart.... some app icons are no longer on my home screens?

Any ideas? Someone point me in the right direction as to what to do?

I think I figured out what the problem was. I had Developer Options turned on. It definitely fixed the games not working and the system lag. I got an email and that seemed to be fixed but lets see if that continues to go ok. The apps disappearing from the home screens is still a problem after a restart? Any ideas there?

Another problem is that Shazam nor Soundhound works. When I start them they both say another application is using the microphone?

Move the apps to the internal storage, and they will stop disappearing.
