    Default Huge battery drain over night.
    My phone was almost fully charged last night when i went to bed and when i woke up this morning it was at 43%. There were no missed calls, or texts or emails, so status notifier wasn't making my phone vibrate all night. I did install some new apps last night though, BreakTouch, de Blob, FunkyPunch, Fuzzle and MotionX Poker. Anyone know if any of this games magically drain your battery? Or is my battery starting to poop out on me?

    Thanks,
    Nic Allen

    Do you have SBsettings installed. Any themes running like video themes?

    Nope, no SBsettings or video theme. Just a couple custom icons, five icon dock and winterboard, which i use for my wallpaper and to change my keyboard theme.

    Thats weird. I would just reset the phone and see what happens. Maybe some process got stuck running in the background.

    Sure it is possible. You could install sbsettings to see your free memory and to see running processes. If it continues this way, I would do a restore to see if it is a program that is messing with you. If after the restore, it still does the same thing, your battery is toast. Contact cpjr if you have any questions about battery swaps, dude has done it several times.

    If you were playing one of those games or browsing with Safari, a process may have been left running in the background. Ive had the same thing happen. Do what the others said and install SBSettings. After using apps you can check to see if any process are left running and clear them. Just don't clear phone.
