Default Battery Drain Problem

Please Login to Remove!

I was using OS .190 and my battery was lasting all day without a problem. I upgraded to .215, which caused innumerable resets and also caused the battery to die several hours earlier. I then went back to .190 for two days, but the battery drain problem I experienced when I had .215 installed continued. Thus, I installed .216. I am still seeing significant battery drain.

I charge the battery fully every night. I start using BB at about 7 am. I usually still have at least 35-40% battery by 8 pm. Now, battery is empty by 4 pm. Enormous difference.

I have the following programs and settings (which are exactly the same as when I was using .290 and had no battery drain problems:
3G on
Wifi Off
Bluetooth on
Brightness:40
Backlight timeout:45 sec
auto dim and LED off,
Pocketday (Running)
Aim (Running)
Simulsas beta (Running)
Datavault (not running)
Google Maps (not running)
Beyond 411 (not running)

As I said, under .190, battery had 35-40% remaining after 13 hours. Now, under .216 it is dead by 4pm. Any help or ideas would be appreciated.
