    I have a sneaking suspicion that my battery runs-down more quickly (after a battery-pull) once I have run the Solitaire (by SolverLabs) app.
    I realise that this is not exactly a scientific conclusion, but it does make me wonder if there are apps that do not close completely on exit and that this could be one explanation for the differences in battery life that CB users are experiencing.
    I guess that I could try and abstain from my daily Solitaire addiction, but I am sure that there will be side-effects.
    Does anyone else running Solitaire have a similar experience?

    Yes certain apps do cause battery drain and even memory leaks. I never used the Solitaire app,
    but for me, Whatsapp, was a huge battery drainer.
    Not so much on the Z10 now though.

    I uninstalled Solitaire and what a difference!

    obviously, there will be some difference, because I am no longer playing Solitaire for up to 45 minutes each day, but the battery drain is significantly reduced in standby after uninstalling Solitaire.
