Default Re: 9930 shortened battery life with Bridge 2.0

Is anyone else seeing this? I wouldn't think that I would have to shut down my PlayBook or turn off bridge/bluetooth to get decent battery life.
For the past week or so I was baffled how quickly my 9900 battery drains. I out of battery by early afternoon, and that's with a relatively light use.

I was constantly checking for apps running in the background, but there was nothing besides the basic apps...

After reading your post I realized that there is one other app that was running but it does not show up - BB Bridge. And the drop in battery life is definitely associated with V2.0 update.

I would definitely be a hassle to turn the Bridge On and Off to get a better battery life, but I don't see another choice, at least until RIM releases a more battery friendly version of the bridge....
