Only partially true. If you charge from a "dumb" wall charger it will sleep. If you charge from a USB host (computer, or in my case a car charger which will stream music from a USB drive), THAT is what triggers a wakelock so you never get to sleep. See this thread.

I charge via USB on my MacBook pro 3/7 nights in a given week and I've never experienced this. At all. Charged from MBP the night before last and phone lasted 5h 5m and 43s screen-on time with 22.5h unplugged time. No juice defender, no nothing but stock TW and Kernel.

That is a handfull of people reporting a similiar problem and you jump to concluding that it affects every single note? All the reviewers of this device, all the note forums and the 10 people in the one you linked that are basically speculating about wakelock causes make that a widespread issue? I think not. I've never experienced this.

So just root your phone and replace the framework-res and SystemUI files with the ones posted in the Note themes and apps forum here -- there are instructions posted as well.

Or install an app like Battery Indicator.

So a handful of people have confirmed this is a valid bug and you jump to concluding that it doesn't affect every single note - just because you haven't encountered it?

Yeah, that logic goes both ways.

The problem with most battery apps is that they add a second battery status icon to the bar instead of just replacing the one that is there. Modding the framework-res and SystemUI files, on the other hand, replaces the stock status icon altogether.

Does the BI app actually replace the stock icon, or does it add a second one to the bar?

You are correct, it just adds a second indicator as an "ongoing notification". Not perfect, but for someone that doesn't want to root just to replace the stock indicator it is a 2-minute solution.

Yeah just search for "current widget "in market. It can log mA info so you get an idea of your screen off battery usage.
