Default Battery life question

Yes, I use my device a lot. That said, I wanted to post my running services to see how I can reduce the load. I am running Baked Snack 1.8 and am rooted with unrevoked. I use Touchdown for email/calendaring/contacts. I recently started using Juice Defender Beta and SetCPU (only screen off profile). I can literally watch my battery percentage drop. I have done the following:

unchecked always on data
unchecked google talk
sprint only for network

I noticed that there is a "running" tab under manage applications. Here is my list of running apps (and I even try to keep it trimmed down):

android system
beautiful widgets
calendar storage (I use Touchdown for calendar)
chompsms
com.android.providers.application
com.android.providers.users
com.htc.dcs.service.stock
com.htc.provider.settings
com.htc.socialnetwork.provider
com.smithmicro.DM
contacts storage
customization settings
customization setup
DCS utility component
dialer
dialer storage
download manager
DRM Protected content
EPST
Facebook for HTC Sense (i only use Tweetdeck)
fantasy '10
Flickr (dont use)
Friend Stream (dont use)
Gmail
Google Partner setup
Google Search
Google Services Framework
Google Voice
HTC checkin Service
HTC DM
HTC IQAgent
HTC Media Uploader
HTC Message Uploader
HTC Sense
HTC weather sync provider
HTC widget download manager
Juice Defender Beta
LauncherPro
Lockbot Free
Market
Media container service
Media Storage
Messages (I use ChompSMS)
Messenger
Music
My Uploads
No Lock
Open Sense Plugin Mgr
Package Installer
PC Syncronization (I dont synch anything via PC)
PDF viewer
Peep (dont use)
People (I sync via Touchdown)
People
Rosie Utility
SetCPU
Settings
Settings Storage
Slacker (never use)

I am guessing its your touchdown, fantasy football, or lockbot causing the problems.

The following are required by the system.
Calander storage
messages (chomp requires this)
Facebook for HTC synchs your contact photos.


I would ditch the 3 apps at the top and see how it goes.
I can't comment on the rom, I run fresh 3.3.0.1

Lockbot is brand new and I have had the same issues since I installed that yesterday. I Touchdown is my email client and I cant use stock HTC app since exchange version is little older than needed. Thanks.

CM6 with Snap 7.6 problem solved..I cant tell you how much better my Battery life is since this combo.. I tryed everything else out there second best combo was the latest Fresh rom off the newest OTA update, CM6/Snap7.6 bests Fresh by alot from what I have seen. Since I changed I get home after a full day with 20-30% battery I used to NEED a bump (the phone not me) around late afternoon before no matter what.

Try turning off your Mobile Network when you don't need it - this will save a lot of juice.

Yeah, that's what I meant. It defaults to like 3-5 min pooling. Not sure why yours doesn't sleep, mine does.

I run CM6 Stable w/ Snap 7.5 and am getting 24+ hours easy with my (light-moderate) usual use.
