I have background data disabled always, and still my PDN doesn't sleep all the time. (GE or non-GE). That's why I wrote and use SoftLocker to help me workaround this issue. It has seemed to help me out quite a bit, at least since I gave up worrying about closing apps and stuff just so my screen wouldn't wake up...and of course it still did from time to time.digidad;85226]I read a number of you have had success with sleep after disabling said:Update:[/B] I am testing WiSync (GearSoft Homepage: Product News) which looks like it might fit the bill. If that doesn't work, there is another app called SyncWifi which might. I will report back in a few days. Anyone tried these apps to address their sleep issue with GE installed?
mrschmitz - Isn't that almost the exact opposite of what most of us are trying to accomplish? Your app actually prevents the device from entering deep sleep? From reading your posts, you indicate that using this tool your device charge level drops ~ 30-40% in 7 hours of non-use - that would kill the battery within 24 hours. Others who have gotten deep sleep to work have reported almost no drop at all over the same time period. I just want to be able to reliably pick up the device - even after a few days, without the battery having unexpectedly discharged. I guess it all comes down to whether you want the device to function more like a phone or more like an e-book reader, and what your expectations are as a result.mrschmitz;85260]I have background data disabled always said:SoftLocker[/URL] to help me workaround this issue.

Update: removing Kindle did nothing for me. I have no idea what's going on. I've tried AutoTask Killer... which seamed promising for about 15 minutes, but it only prevents apps, not processes from popping up. I actually just switched from the Open Platform V 3.0 back to 1.0 w/o the market and it is STILL waking up randomly on me. The search continues.StoneDog;89303 said:Kindle huh? I wouldn't think that it would try and sync up books without you telling it to. I've been having similar problems on the Open Platform as well (waking up after put into sleep). I'll give it a whirl (uninstalling kindle) and see what it does for us.
