Thank you. Great app.
I kindly ask you to renew the icon of ReRemindConfig.exe.
Also, please replace folder tree icons with the folder icons from WM 6.5.
Thank you.

V7 Released
- Added new notification: "Unread MMS" <- Default is enabled, so be sure to go into Config if you don't want this.
- Config now supports sound and vibration preview (see the "menu" button).
- Added hack to work around bug in Windows Phone 6.5 regarding the lack of an audible notification for "all day" appointments with a reminder set. Limitations: Only WAV files are supported (use the standard Sounds and Notifications setting to set it), AutoSnooze will not work (the replay of the notification two minutes after the first notification), and Windows Mobile 6.1 is not supported (has the bug too, but due to differences in the way the notification system sets values in the registry, my fix will only work for 6.5). See http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=469186

Thank you for update.
I kindly ask you to update the config icon and to split the settings on 2 pages, in order to eliminate the scrollbar.
Thank you.

It's probably not ReRemind unless you have a waiting reminder and set it to something like chime every minute (which would cause your device to wake up every minute).

Unless you have an app that's flipping the registry values that reremind monitors constantly (in other words, keeps ReRemind actively taking action on values that are changing constantly), then there is no explanation for that type of drain. Something might be wrong with your device/ROM.

To test this theory, install ReRemind and then deactivate all monitors (uncheck them all). This will pretty much just start the reremind service, but the triggers for the monitored registry values won't fire.

EDIT: I should point out that any battery test can be tainted by other factors. Make sure all today screen plugins are off, all other third party services are stopped, there are no reminders that will fire during the test period, activesync push is off and schedule is disabled, and the cellular radio is off during test. In addition, you should do several tests (maybe three) with AND without the problem application (whether its reremind or not) as battery level testing is subject to SO many variables.

Thanks.
It could be the custom Rom, the HD2 is using, is not suitable.
I have suspected/uninstall/reinstall/tested multiple other apps that is drain the batt for last 2 months. Till 2 days ago, uninstalling reremind, prevents the batt drain.

Will try the test changing notifications type in reremind.....

Using HD2 Merlion 1.8 Rom:
Test again, reinstall,

(a)
untick all sms mms email calls reminder ....
tick "wake on notify", tick "do not notify during", "notify limit = 0"

The every 1.5 min, extra batt drain still exists.

(b)
untick all sms mms email calls reminder ....
untick all any other options :: "wake on notify", "do not notify during", change notify limit to "1"

The every 1.5 min, extra batt drain still exists.

(c) uninstall reremind

The batt drain is left with basic, the extra drain per 1.5 min does not appear.



==> HD2 Merlion Rom is not compatible.

I can't explain it. That's quite bizarre. The application literally doesn't do anything in the (b) case you describe. It starts up, but then will be completely idle. Yes, I think its safe to say it's not compatible with that ROM. lol.

EDIT: Maybe that's just the overhead of running a service. How much less time does the 1.5 factor equal in terms of battery life? I mean is it like 5 hours versus 10 hours, or more like 9.8 hours instead of 10 hours?
