    Default Play store eats battery life

    Hi,

    I noticed the play store is eating my battery life, even when the unit should be idle. Here is my battery usage for today. I used the unit for 30 minutes this AM and then closed the case.

    Weird. I can't tell you why it's happening, but usually a power down/power up cycle will clear it up.

    Also, it would be worthwhile to hit that "Report" button and give the folks at Google a description of this problem.

    I think then play store runs to check for new versions of apps. Perhaps it is getting stuck since the WiFi shuts down when I close the case.

    I usually have my Wi-Fi off, but I never have those battery drain problems. Still shouldn't be happening.
