Metal Head you saved the day with your battery tips. They helped tremendously! Now I've learned to look at the phone more like a laptop. After I turn it on I have to "log In" to my email or open a folder and then close them when I'm done. It only takes a second. I can still get the most out of my new EVO with out having all things running all the time. The result was a dead battery in 4 hours out of the box. After your tips it's lasting most of the day with normal use. I have regained hope that I can hold on until sprint comes out with better solutions and or battery's. Someday I'll see my live wall paper again glowing vs the boring black background but at least I can call my girfriend on the way home from work.
I can't take credit for them, they were just a repost but some of those tips really helped me out and I'm glad that they are helping others out too. I have no issues whatsoever with battery, even with moderate to heavy use. As long as I'm not constantly playing games on it (which i usually am) I still have over 50% by bedtime.

I'm just sayin'

There is actually a downside to using dark backgrounds, it causes people to increase their screen brightness settings which does use more power. It is better to use a light background and turn down the brightness.
Believe me Google has studied this, and if this worked they would have a black background on the search pages.

Wrecklass is right, a black wallpaper won't do anything all to help extend your battery life. With the way a lcd works, it makes no difference what color your background is because it takes just as much power to turn the pixels black as it does white and because the backlight is still on just the same.
