    Any way to help stop the battery drain from beejiveIM besides not using it?

    That's why I uninstalled it. It takes my battery drain from about 5.9% per hour to over 13%.

    yea its a bummer...maybe cuz its only the beta right now? Or if its the official release maybe they will update it eventually. I'm sure they are getting tons of complaints.

    Yeah, it does suck. The only reason I can think of is that it is continuously checking for new people logging in so that is always using the connection. Using the connection = battery drain.

    I also have to chime in a say that the battery drain is so bad that I stopped using it altogether. I didn't have this problem when I was using a Curve. I hope they fix it soon so I can start using it again. The amount of time they're taking to finish this app is pretty pathetic.

    Yup the battery drain kills the entire program for me. I'd buy it if it weren't for that.

    Very good program but I have noticed since my trial expired and I uninstalled and switched back to google and yahoo chat clients separately, both my memory and battery life have improved significantly
