Apps remaining active when in sleep mode?
I just pulled out my 3GS which I charged overnight, turned on about 6:30am and which I used to send 1 text this morning, nothing else. Itís now about 10:30am and itís already down to 90%. When I put it in sleep mode, I didnít press the Home button and when I opened it again, it went directly to the text app. Hereís my question: because I didnít send it to the home screen after texting, was the texting app running the entire time, thus draining the battery?

all in all, 13% battery drain in 9 hours is fan-flippin'-tastic!! compared to the complaints i read on numerous other threads about battery life.
6:30am - 10:30am = 10% drain
10:30am - 3:30pm = 3% drain
is this a true reflection of your battery life? or am i missing something here? i'd say this isn't bad.
