Htc smartphone will not go to sleep mode. shortens battery life

This phone is only about 6 months old. it doesn't go into sleep mode. Screen dims but about every 20 secs or so it lights up again. Since this has started the battery is only lasting about 8 hours. Usually goes 2 or 3 days without needing recharged. I did a hard reset and nothing changed. Except now it's the owners info that comes on before it would start my contacts. HELP!

SOURCE: HTC S710 - Battery issue

Hi,
it could be either battery or charger, If the charger isn't supplying enough power it will fool the phone..
some 3rd party batteries and cheapo chargers can cause all sorts of problems like this.
best way to test is charge your phone by usb, it takes longer but will give you some idea of weather its the battery or charger.
Make sure that the box at the bottom of the power management window (dont charge by usb) is set to off. Also for best results remove any other usb devices from the computer this will leave more power for the phone.

Best of luck

SOURCE: how do i get the old owners info off the phone so i can put mine on it?

Well the easiest way to start with a clean device is to perform a "Hard Reset".. This resets the phone back to the way it was when it came from the factory. It restores the Operating System BUT it deletes all the info YOU and the previous owner have put on. So before doing a hard reset move anything you want saved onto your PC. If there is nothing vital then go to:

Start>Settings>System(tab)> and click on clear storage.

All previous wifi and network settings will be removed. (All customisation and programs installed by you or the previous owner will also be removed)

If you need assistance in inputting the new settings then I suggest joining a support forum like www.xda-developers.com or Modaco etc.

Your HTC is also known as the Mogul or the Titan so on the forums it may be listed under these names.

SOURCE: Fully charged mobile battery goes dry within few hours(3 hours)

If it is 8 Mths. old, it should be under warranty.Have the providwer fix the issue.

you can try Kaiser Tweaks:

***Copied from this link:
http://www.htcwiki.com/thread/935379/Battery+Life

which will change the settings in the registry automatically:

These WILL work, and WILL improve your performance!

1. HKLM\Comm\AsyncMac1\Parms\DisablePowerManagement
Change Dword value from 1 (default) to 0

2. HKLMComm\Irsir1\Parms\DisablePowerManagement
Change Dword value from 1 (default) to 0

3. HKLM\Comm\PPTP1\Parms\DisablePowerManagement
Change Dword value from 1 (default) to 0

4. HKLM\Comm\L2TP1\Parms\DisablePowerManagement
Change Dword value from 1 (default) to 0

To make these registry changes, I used CeRegEditor. Works from the computer and connects to the phone/PPC while synched. I have noticed an improvement in battery life. Should work with WM5 and WM6.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.

How long is the battery life?


Hi,
As far as I discover ,up to now, the battery life of the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 smartphone has been kept under wraps. The official product page is just left blank under the battery performance section. However, with the news of the handset launching in Japan, the official SE Japan site does reveal this juicy information. Given its 1GHz Snapdragon chipset and 4-inch screen, I wasn't putting too much hope in decent battery life, but it's looking reasonably okay.
Talktime with 3G networks should last for 4 hours and 50 minutes, whilst a 3G standby time of 200 hours is quoted. Obviously official numbers are always inflated, but at least you'll hopefully be able to get a good days use out of it before having to re-charge.
Just for your own test;
On the dialler press * #*#4636#*# * and under battery history make sure that your phone is sleeping when you are not using it. (Time spent not sleeping)
If its at 100% then an app you've installed is preventing your phone from sleeping. I think the latest firmware fixes the issue
Please switched off the auto screen brightness and set it manually at about 75% which should shorten the battery life but so far no.
A free program called TaskKiller will definetely help to close the .apps draining battery...
Pls read the articles on the URL below for more info and Tips..
Hope this helps! Take care and please Remember to rate/vote and give me

Why my battery have a short time of life?


HTC phones and all android phones use much more battery life then your previous phones. they run many applications all at the same time, whether you want it to or not. To save battery life, download an app killer from the marketplace. I purchased an extended battery and it made it much more tolerable about charging occurances

How to disable airplane mode


the hero has some setting widgets you can put on one of your screen to get to these settings very quickly and easily. no more needing to go into the settings and hunting them down.

go to add (+) > htc widget > settings > airplane mode.

there will now be a widget you can push to turn on airplane mode on and off. you can also put the others on your screen as well. turning these widgets off will also save your battery life.

I am using HTC Touch (P3452) for last 4 months. Sometimes I am facing a critical problem when my phone stays in SLEEP mode. I usually press power button to turn the phone to SLEEP mode. It helps me to save...


Hi dpramanik, even i had the same problem with my HTC touch 3452 which i had bought 4 months back. For the first 3 months i didnt had any problem while i was using spice sim. In the 4 th month i changed over to Airtel sim then this peculiar problem started.(the airtel sim worked perfectly when used on my other phone N70). then i realised that the roblem lies with HTC phone.So i returned HTC 3452 set to Univercel shop where i had purchased.(I tried hard to convince the people in univercel shop, i tried to call to airtel no on HTC 3452 set from my other phone. I tried nearly 1 hour coz not all calls get missed but only few which u cant predict when calls get missed without your notice). After 20 days i got my phone back and was surprised to see new version of windows 6.1 with lot of improved features. This solved my problem of calls getting missed. But i was unhappy with only one thing - i lost Touch Cube , instead windows 6.1 has sliding scroll down on the screen. So i suggest you to get windows in your phone upgraded free of cost(within warranty period) from 6.0 to 6.1 or else get a spice sim and retain the touchcube and win6.0 OS. Good luck. i think i was of some help to you.
