    News and Weather battery drain?

    I'm sorry if this is old already, but does the News and Weather service running in the background drain a lot of battery? I disabled the auto refresh but it still seems to run in the background constantly.

    Am I going to need taskkiller? And if so, is it even necessary?

    Thanks

    EDIT: Wow...even with Task Killer, the service keeps coming back!

    I checked my battery usage it is minimal. I have a charger at work,car, and home. I just let it run. Full brightness.

    Yeah the news and weather app will drain your battery. It only did this if I put the widget on my desktop but once i removed it I regained reasonable battery life,

    I have had pretty terrible battery life with my n1. Stock or C6, Adw or launcher pro, Bluetooth wifi on or off. The one constant is that I have always had the news widget on my homescreen. I just removed it and hope I can get a full day usage. I live by the charger manifesto but I'm going camping this weekend and don't know how I will handle waking up with a dead cell!

    Well I just use the small widget for weather (gives just the temp) and leave sync on.. really dose not strain my battery. My daily battery use from 4am to 5pm is about 80% use (thats with GPS on).. but now while at work I usual have GPS off (unless I take pics since I work at McCarren Airport, then I turn it on for a bit) and my phone last all day (once I forgot to plug it in over night and woke up and it was at 10%.. so thats a good 24hr).
