So I know the Incredible isn't great with battery life, I've had mine since day one. But I've noticed it get a LOT worse recently.

I've been changing roms for the last 6 months and finally settled on PONS CM7. I'm using the Mar. 21st build and noticed my screen was always the culprit low battery. So I ran a test. I charged my phone to max, started downloading a few songs, I unplugged my phone and turned the screen off completely.

I left it alone for 30 minutes and then checked the battery usage. The battery was down to 54% and the display used 61% of the battery. I know I was using 3g to download, but why was the display taking away soo much when it was off?
