idle battery drain
In trying several Android SD builds (Cope's and Warrenb's CM7, Daniest's Desire Z) I am facing the same issue over and over. Initially the phone idles with the battery drain around 5ma (which is suitable for daily use), after a day or two, idle battery drain jumps to around 60ma (with wifi/bluetooth/gps/syncing/background data turned off), making the build fairly useless. Rebooting or turning Airplane mode on/off does not solve the issue.

Any ideas on what could be the problem or how to find out what applications are causing this change?

I searched several threads, but cannot find any helpful answers.

I've loaded darkstone's Froyo onto my HD2 and it's running very nicely. I'm just wondering if the above line from the wiki means that Android will never have power management capabilities on the HD2 as good as when the HD2 is running WinMo?

I've done some searching around but most of what I found seemed from a while ago and not sure if it's relevant.

Much appreciated!

It basically means that Android cannot call a "halt" to the CPU, but the governor can set the CPU speed to save power, more specifically if its in standby the Qualcomm CPU will get down-clocked to ~230Mhz

Dear jonbasa,

Is halting the CPU a regular feature of android phones or these types of CPUs? They wake up when they're needed?

Well halting basically means that the CPU can go into a "sleep mode" if the device is in standby. whether or not the Qualcomm CPU can support that function natively, I don't know.

If anyone is having battery issues you should change the kernel if possible.

Thumbs up Ndrive 10.1.15
I installed CopenWarren's Cyanogenmod 7 on my HD2 build 4/2/11.
Ndrive does not work. It opens and then closes again. Any ideas on how to get it working?

It was working perfectly on Darkstone1337's superramfroyo 1.5

Not all apps work on the GingerBread Builds.

I installed MCCM GB v1.8 Sense Gingerbread (FEB 16) SD on my HD2 and Ndrive works perfectly on this build.

Just installed AmeriCanAndroid AOSP HD2( FEB 16) and NDrive 10.1.15 now works on their (Warren213 & Copenhagen) latest build as well.

This new build seems more stable than MCCM's 1.8 build.
I'll carry on using this new build for now.
