Motorola Droid X :: Find What App Is Not Letting The Phone Sleep
Sep 13, 2010
What is a good way to find what app is causing the phone not to sleep. I charged the phone last night while on, unplugged this morning and according to Spare Parts, my phone has been running 100%. I've also got System Panel Lite and Battery Left, but I'll be damned if I can't tell what the offending app is. Battery is on Smart Mode, Time Outs are set to 15 min for both Off Peak and Peak.
Good news is 9 hours 36 minutes and I'm still at 50% with an extended Battery and I've done quite a bit of Market searching and downloading, had a few phone calls, sent a few texts, checked the news widget, checked emails, and checked the old facepage a dozen times. (slow day at work)
Anyway, anyone have a good way to check for offending applications?
It's done this before and now that I want to take advantage of the 4 docked icons, it's doing it again. I am going to try a fix permission, but the RAB and LAB show next to the home button, but I can't drag any icons into the spaces allocated for them. The far left and far right are fine, but those are not technically the action buttons.
So i think the Weather Widget is already on one of the screens when you get the phone.... i deleted it and then added it to a different screen....
My problem is this: When i go to add a city by name or zip code and hit search, i see the pop up window for searching for a split second and then it disappears and it doesnt come up with any cities for me to select....
so basicly its not letting me add any cities... anyone else having this problem?
I cannot, for the life of me, figure out what's wrong. I've rooted my phone, 2.2 with Clockworkmod Recovery. I've loaded up my sdcard with .zip files of a few ROMs I'd like to try, go through the whole process of loading up a new ROM, and every single time the phone boots back into the stock ROM. I've had some success with loading up the given ROMs in ROM Manager- but I'm trying to install Smoked Glass 8 or Ultimate Droid, and those are not working.
I am not rooted and I don't have 2.2. Have wifi, bluetooth, etc off. I have spare parts. I was losing 20-30% battery overnight with my phone fully charged at 100% so went into spare parts in battery history and it said the phone was running 100% for 12 hours. So to test it today I plugged it in, charged it to 100%, unplugged it, killed all tasks (even task manager), shut the screen off and sat it down for 2 hours. When I turned it on it was at 80% and spare parts said runnning 100 and when I click that it says "time spent without sleeping 2hrs (99.99025592487624%)
For some odd reason my phone will not "sleep". The screen just stays on. The only way I can get it to sleep and the screen to lock is to push the power buton on top of the phone. I have the screen set to time out at 1 minute. I have searched and read but no real answers for this phone.
So I'm currently running the newest rubix build with the leaked version, but I've had this problem with other roms before this. I notice sometimes my phone just wont go to sleep and no matter what I cant figure out why. I dont have any crazy apps or services running in the background and in fact I think my wifi is part of the problem. For example, today I've had the phone off the charger for about 3 hours. I just checked it, and despite my screen only being on for about 30 mins (also no streaming or background data being used that I know of) my phone was running the entire time (100% reading in spare parts). I also noticed my wifi use in battery manager was high so I shut of wifi and of course the phone finally goes to sleep almost immediately after. I can't replicate this problem everytime although I havent fully tried, but I do know I've had a similar problem before on other roms. Am I missing something as to why wifi is preventing my phone from sleeping?
I installednexbeast and I love it... only problem when pressing the power button nothing happens.... if I hold it down I get the power off menu but no sleep for just pushing it.... dug through all settings and couldn't find anything...
back with 2.1 there was the issue with GPS, and once it was activated not allowing the phone to "sleep." You could see the results of this in the "Battery History" screen that Spare Parts would give you.First of all this does not seem to be fixed with 2.2 unless im missing something in my settings, and actually it seems to have gotten worse.Even when i change my WiFi Sleep Policy to turn off when "screen is off" it seems as though the phone cannot go to sleep, and my Wifi is not turning off as it should.
I'm plugging my phone into my computer (Windows 7), but when I try to view sd card contents I am getting "Please insert disk" notification. It recognizes that I have it plugged in and it charges, but I can't access any of my phone files. I was able to do this 5 hours ago and since I've had this phone, this has never happened before. Before when I plugged my phone in I instantly got a pop up asking if I want to see files, but now I can't even access them without that. No idea where this new problem just came from.
I searched through another thread and it wasn't specified, but I have the Droid2 and want to connect to the home wifi router, but don't know my phone's MAC address as this is the setting of the router to make it more efficient for gaming.
I have already gone to the settings page under wifi and 'advanced' but it has a MAC ADDRESS listing, but won't let me select it saying it is unavailable.
1. How can I enable and find out my MAC Address 2. While I'm at it although I have not been on the forums in a few weeks and admit this is a lazy ploy at help, has a one click or 'user-friendly' root come for Droid2 that doesn't require me to read pages of a thread and go through 100 steps!?
I received the invite for Google Voice/Phone today - I set up the phone, received my new number, and have even called the number to make sure it works...it does....But I want to be able to toggle back and forth from my verizon number and google number when making calls....how do I go about this....
So I'm looking around the web for a good belt case / holster for my new Droid, but all the ones I've seen have a magnetic flap to keep them closed. While this is great, wont this confuse the Droid into thinking it's docked (and thus drain the battery)?
So here I am tooling along feeling great. Getting good life out of the battery, running about 18% awake time. This afternoon all of a sudden I am stuck at 100% awake time! I disabled ear, advanced task mgr etc. Nothing.
after downloading the update i cant manualy put the phone to sleep. It's like the button (red-end button) just doesnt work. I have to just wait for the phone to time out and go to sleep on its own. Any thoughts...
I always have used handcent and recently i started to use the sms notification over the handcents quick reply. Then i changed my mind and got rid of sms notification. When i did that, now my phone wont sleep. I already read the thread where i need a new sms messenger over the regular one and i even uninstalled and reinstalled chompsms and handcent. Nothing i do can make my phone sleep, it is always at 100% I also uninstalled any new apps.
If I hit the power button to shut off the screen, does it sleep immediately? Or is there a time limit? I ask because when my screen is off for a little while, I stop receiving notifications for text and emal, battery is in performance mode.
I apologize if these topics were already covered in previous threads.I wasn't able to find anything related in my searches. Auto-rotation for keyboard when answering a text message received in sleep mode does not work. If I actively send a text when phone is already awake, keyboard rotates with no problem but when I go to reply to a text that I received while phone is in sleep mode, the keyboard does not rotate. Is this the norm?I am also experiencing a delay when the I wake the phone. After unlocking the phone, I used to go straight to my home page, now I get a "loading" message which takes several seconds. Is this due to the number of apps I have loaded? Is it possibly due to number of photo frames I have on my home screen or the complexity of the wallpaper?
I have the dock (now) and I have the Droid set to sleep and lock after two minutes. Great while I have my phone out of the dock but annoying when it is in the dock. I don't see a setting to disable sleep mode while docked.
I tried the market and searched google (only to find apps that help you sleep lol). I'm looking for a way to set a button on the home screen to press and put the phone to sleep instead of having to push the top button all the time.
I know this is going to sound dumb but how do I put the eris into sleep without not touching it? like the droid has a dedicated key at the top which is also the power key so how do I do it for the eris?
Okay so I seem to have a new sleep issue on 2.2. I also had this same issue with the leaked 2.2. This is what happens. My phone will be okay for maybe a day or even a day and a half. it also might occur after only a few hours. Phone will be sleeping fine and then all the sudden I notice my running time is increasing, even when the phone should be sleeping. Then the next day and every day after my running time is at 100% until I do a reboot on the phone. Here is the odd thing with this. If I go to partial wake usage there isn't anything there causing it. All the partial wake things are very small like they should be. With the GPS issue it was Android System that was causing the phone not to sleep and it was obvious. With this issue there is nothing showing in partial wake. I've also seen a few others post replies in certain threads with this issue. I've tried doing a wipe and starting over and that was last night. Within about 6 hours or so off the charger today the issue was already back. We also have another Droid X in the household and I took a look at it tonight and it's also running 100% since off charger and nothing really showing up in partial wake. I'd just like to see how many others are seeing this and hopefully someone can be smart enough to figure out what's causing it. I can't say for sure if I'm actually seeing a battery impact or not. Battery still seems decent to me. It's just very annoying knowing it's not working the way it's supposed to.
