Data connection is always on, killing battery, used to turn off...

I've been using Calkulin's 6.5 SPB ROM for several months. One of the things I liked the most about it was that my battery would last a *long* time - I can usually make it all day and still be at 60-70%.

I've been messing around with the new kitchens, and loving 6.5.5 (since Calk quit with the ROMs, I've been having to cook them myself). The problem is, I don't know what piece of magic he put in there to keep the battery going so long.

I think the problem is that my data connection *never* cuts off. It used to go dormant when not in use. I even had Exchange push turned on, and still got the exceptional battery life in the old ROM. Does anyone know how to get the data to turn itself off when not in use? What did Calk do?

I'm not sure what he did in his roms, but I run this program (bandswitch) that will kill an idle connection after so many seconds (that you determine) and will reconnect when requested, I have mine set to 30 seconds so when I'm browsing the web, had it set to 15 and could get 9+ hours, but browsing the web sometimes took forever cause it had to reconnect, give it a try and see what you think

Nosey, that sounds cool! I might have to try that cab out.

OP, keep in mind the newest stuff with more eye candy and features will require more resources than the older stuff. More processes running requiring more ram, cpu, and battery polling. So naturally you probably won't get the battery life you had with older builds. Never say never though! That's part of the challenge when cooking to try to add new stuff without overloading the hardware.

Re: Data connection is always on, killing battery, used to turn off...

Ok, thanks, I'll give that cab a try and see what happens. Otherwise I'll go back to the old ROM. A couple more months and I'll probably switch to the Evo anyway. I love WM to death - I had the original XDA on T-mobile and have had one ever since. But, with MS killing it, I don't see much point in sticking around. WM7 looks like a turd compared to Android and WebOS.
