    Default HTC Checkin Service (or: how to drain a battery)

    Hey all,

    I've noticed that there's a service that is always running: "HTC Checkin Service / Sync Feeds / Android ...".

    It constantly takes at least 13% CPU. I've seen it get to 40% and it's not rare to find it at over 20%.

    1. What is it?
    2. How do I get rid of it? I tried to kill it but it doesn't die (or just immediately comes back)

    I googled for it for a while and saw that I was not the only one who had noticed it, but couldn't find an answer for what it was or how to get rid of it.

    Any help will be appreciated

    Did you ever solve this mystery? My HTC Legend just started with the "HTC Checkin Service" cpu issue today and I've found no answers. The constant 10-15% cpu usage is killing my battery fast.
