Default Re: 9930 shortened battery life with Bridge 2.0

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....
You may reinstall the OS by LOADER.exe
before you go, you must delete some unnecessary file in:
C:\Program Files\Common Files\Research In Motion\Shared\Loader Files\9000-v4.6.0.282_P4.0.0.235\Java
