    Do not text and drive!

    Are you rooted or no? If you are, use TB to freeze it.

    . I don't think you are going to negatively affect other apps. I do not think you can uninstall unless you were to root your phone and install a custom rom with blinkfeed removed. Short of that disabling the app is all you can do.

    do you have any idea why it would still draw power after force stop, disabling and so forth

    No, I don't know why it draws power. How did you disable it?

    Go to your app manager and swipe to running, tap the menu dots in the upper right hand corner and select show cache processes. You will probably see HTC Blinkfeed listed. Stop that process

    There is an HTC app running, that must be it. I stopped it.

    No that's not it. Not the HTC Service Pack, Did you tap the menu dots in the upper right hand corner. And select show cache processes? You should see HTC Blinkfeed

    I hit force stop and close out and check it again and the button is available to press again.

    Select HTC Blinkfeed cached background process. It should give you the option to stop the process.

    I did, I pressed stop. Will it just start running again every time I restart the phone for example or am I done messing with it until I restart? Thanks for all the help btw!

    You're welcome. I am not sure. I don't think it'll automatically start with a reboot, but there's one way to find out reboot and check
