So I have discovered an issue with the battery. So far I have not been able to diagnose what causes it, but I am not convinced it is related to the Cell Standby and Phone Idle. I don't find them to be any higher than ApeX. I believe that these appear comparatively higher to stock, because the blur framework and other bloat uses more battery and therefore reduces the percentages of Cell Standby and Phone Idle and makes them appear to use less battery on stock.

Here is the issue I have discovered. Using CPU Spy, I have noticed that sometimes the phone does not utilize the Deep Sleep state at all. All day today my phone did not use it. I rebooted a little bit ago once I noticed this, and now it is going into Deep Sleep again. I can't find an app that is using excessive CPU or setting wake lock to keep it active, so it seems that it may be a ROM bug.

Now, all that said, I am still getting excellent battery life. Even today, with the phone not going into Deep Sleep at all, I was at ~12 hours with about 30 emails, 20 min calls, 20 texts, Twitter and FB on 30 min, no battery saving features enabled (wifi sleep or disabling of sync/data), and maybe an hour of music and I still had 68% remaining. This is fairly close to what I was getting on ApeX 2.0 and nearly twice that of stock 596 and it spent all day idling at 300MHz. All of this is at the stock clock and voltage.

Edit: Forgot to mention this was happening on nightly 17 and 18. Currently on 18.
