Android phone won't go into standby

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I just got a Samsung Galaxy Nexus the day before Easter, (my first smartphone ever biggrin.gif) and I installed an app 2 days ago that displays notification on my screen when I got an email or text, missed call etc... This is the app [link]. Well the next day at the end of work I looked at my phone and saw that I only had about 10% battery left! I noticed from the settings screen that my phone was always awake and figured it was this app so I uninstalled it. So today at the end of work I noticed the same thing, dead battery and phone is awake all the time. I googled the problem but all I found were people who had 50% awake times or so not 100%. Here is a screenshot that I just took.

700

What could be causing this and how do I save my battery!! 9 hours and 8 min is stupid.

Have you made sure that your screen isn't set to never turn off, and has a timer of maybe 30 seconds or 1 minute? Maybe keep your phone on your desk so you can see if the screen turns on. I have the same phone, it's awesome thumb.gif oh and are you rooted or ROMmed?

Yeah the phone rocks =) my Sleep timeout is 30 seconds so I don't believe it is the problem. It is still stock but perhaps this is a good reason to root it >=D

Yeah, definitely! biggrin.gif it will wipe it, so it may be a good idea! it flies at 1.35GHz (yep, OCd my phone rolleyes.gif )

I would recommend the Eagles Blood ROM: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1388728
Or of course the classic CyanogenMod 9: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1398495

I used this root method: works for the GSM or CDMA version http://galaxynexusroot.com/galaxy-nexus-root/how-to-root-galaxy-nexus-universal-guidegsmverizonsprintwindowslinuxmac/

A great kernel to flash: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1455874 (better battery life, my phone lasts for 2.5 days at least on a single charge)
