Sleep issue: the phone should enter a standby "sleep" mode when the screen is off and there's no apps running like pandora.
Depending on how often you use the phone your awake time should be arond 10-20ish%.
The phone starts out fine then something triggers the phone to remain awake which kills the battery.
You can check this through spare parts by seeing the battery history. It will say what the phone is running at (awake time).
It was thought the drm process or mediahub causes this, but it's not the case. It's something else.

Is that the COMPLETE list of fixes are is there more within this update? And what does the email lag fix? The OS lag when sending large emails?
Is my key tone for swype going to come back with this update like it went away with the previous update? lol.

what about news widgets on your home screens? They keep running right? WOuldn't that explain it?
Also what about the Beautiful Widget? It's got realtime weather updates.. wouldn't that also force the phone not to sleep?
Do we EVEN know what constitutes as sleep mode? Should expect phones to be sleep most of the time when we turn the screen off?

Go to dialer and enter *#4636*1111#. Then select Battery History. From there you can find all this info....specifically Under "Other Usage" the top bar reads "Running". Tap this and it gives you time without sleeping. You can select whether to see this info since last boot, unplugged, or all time.
After a lot of tweaking and locking down certain apps I'm at 23% time without sleeping today. Pretty good considering my Airave went down for about an hour this afternoon. Prior to adjusting settings it was always above 60% and sometimes in the 90's.

Hmm... I don't think this is a defect with the Epic... I've gone through 3 phones... and every one has had its problems, but they have ALL been able to sleep perfectly fine.
For those that have a problem with this particular issue: you must have some rogue process or application that's doing it. Download the System Panel application and it will help you locate the problem.
