I would first like to thank Stillaftermath for giving me this information and bringing it to my attention.

Partial Wake is when your phone’s display is off but Wifi, 3G, ect are still on and running sucking out unneeded power to keep themselves updating. To do this type again *#*#4636#*#* in your dialer and go to Battery Usage>Other Usage> Partial Wake Usage.¬†After you do that look underneath that for any apps that are still running. If you fallowed the guide you shouldn’t see any that you haven’t allowed to keep running because you should have turned off auto sync ect, earlier in the guide. But if you see anything running that is taking up more than 5% battery either uninstall it, make sure Autokiller sees it and can stop it, or turn it off the autosync. There is a bug that has the Flickr auto sync perminantly keep your phone in Partial Wake mode. To turn this off go to Settings>Accounts & Sync> And click the green circle next to Flickr to turn it off.

This is the second battery test I am doing for the HTC Evo after I used my guide https://stuff2help.wordpress.com/android-evo/ to get amazing battery life! I left my HTC Evo on over night to see how much battery leaving it in Standby will do. Standby for me is leaving on Wi-Fi and Airplane mode because I don’t want any calls but I still want my HTC Evo to function as an Alarm clock and as a Text Message¬†Receiver/Sender.

Not for the Big part I got 9 hours of battery life on standby, not that good? I had 85% when I woke back up. 85% Left! Here are the pictures.

Started the Test at 2:02 Am, and sat it on my Desk for the night.

And I woke up to a Text Message at 11:10 in the morning and took Screen shots of what I saw. An outstanding 85% battery life left after a 9 hour sleep. What’s even more amazing is that Wi-Fi took up half that battery so if I left it off I probably would’ve gotten 90-95% battery life left when I woke up. But seeing as if I turned Wi-Fi off it would ruin its functions as a phone…

Well there you have it I got 9 hours on standby wasting 15% of my battery life. So doing simple math I would have gotten about 60 Hours of battery life if I left my phone off for that long…But I do use my phone so don’t be looking for a time when I’m not going to use it for almost 3 days.
