    Mike, I would press Alt+Escape. This will bring up the list of open programs. Close those that you don't need and that should help. Keep in mind you can't close several programs. However, getting 2 days out of the battery is really not that bad.

    2 days is actually good...I've just ordered the Seidio 2400mah extended battery so should have that with me soon. According to reports I'm expecting around 4-5 days use off it without charging. We'll hope and see

    Bukit, please update as soon as you run and test your new battery.
    I'm currently shopping for one myself.

    I have the Seidio 2400 battery and must say it make a big difference. I still top it off every morning but with using my phone about 3-4 hours per day and atleast 3 hours per night working with apps I still have over 60% left. I think its well worth the investment
