ive been doing this "force fix" i found.

HTC confirms this as a "temp fix" and says their next ROM update will include a permanent solution.

if anything, just do menu > settings > apps > running apps > and force kill any apps that should be dead (usually something like aim, or maps). android is pretty good about killing off everything.

this. they tend to cause more battery drain and can cause more software issues that will fuck with your system. i know some people use them to kill programs and then shut it down which works i suppose but as Mike said, you can do that with default software with ease. also when you restart your phone, make sure to kill the calendar. it starts up and runs in the back ground for no reason causing battery drain.

From the other thread, yes, I was surprised I got 14+ hours and was at 15% battery still. I followed the tips I found on the GoodandEVO forum. Seemed to have worked well. Might be that I just got mine that a update was done to help battery life already???
