wifi/3g radio state and and battery drain in froyo
I am not sure if this is an app related issue or a bug in froyo:
When I am at home and turn on the wifi radio on my EVO, it connects to my network, but then the battery seems to drain 4-5x faster than normal, unless I explicitly turn the 3g radio off, which is when it reverts to the normal rate of battery drain.
It seems like the 3g radio use should automatically suspend when using wifi, but this doesn't seem to be the case, and I would like to pinpoint if this is a problem introduced by one of the apps I am running, or whether this is a bug in froyo, since I don't recall this issue manifesting itself in 2.1
I have tried using system panel to see if there is anything going on with any of my apps, and so far don't see any out of the ordinary or cpu intensive activity that would cause the battery drain (and toggling the radio manually without killing any apps, brings the rate of use back to normal)
Are there some troubleshooting apps/tips you can point me to to help specificially analyze the active power consumption for each radio, to see if the issue is just the way that froyo handles the radio state, or if it is a problem introduced by an app.
Any other thoughts?
