    i start chargning it wirelessly about 2.5 hours before i sleep. when i notice it's full i take it off. before i sleep i turn it off. in the morning i would turn it on again:
    in other words, daily.

    since a smartphone is like a computer in your palm, restarting occasionally helps a lot with speed and stability

    this is in line with my thinking also. there's ram in this phone and as someone else said there can be ram leaks. clearing the ram and giving it a fresh start is very beneficial. so thats why i restart it every morning right after i take it off the charger. also when you hold down the power button you only get an option to shut down the phone. it doesnt restart. you will have to then hold down the power button again til it vibrates to get it to come back on. restart option would take out the need to hold down the power button to turn it back on. some ppl have said their power button has started to get a lil loose. a restart option would help with that also because there would be less times to hold the power button. unless you never restart your phone then in that case it wouldnt matter, hehe.

    Just hold down the power button for a while and it will shut down and restart automatically. When you see the slide screen to shut down, continue to hold down the power button and the phone will shut off and restart on it's own.

    that sounds alot like a soft reset. a restart option would actually go through the process of shutting down like the normal shut off does then restart the phone for you.

    so i just tried this and my phone doesnt restart at all. hehe. the shut down option comes up but after some seconds the screen just shuts off while i'm still holding down the power button. if i let the power button go and hit it again the lock screen just comes back up and the phone never restarted.

    As I've been playing around with the Nokia, I'm finding all apps to do with the GPS, the camera, surfing the web, downloading apps, and I'm sure there's more, are battery hogs. A soft re-boot after closing any of the mentioned down will stop the heavy discharge. I just took a break, saw and took a picture of a cross on a church I go to on Fridays. I checked my battery in settings. It was 58% with 3 hours remaining. Did a re-boot, and now have 55% with 1 day and 2 hours remaining. The equipment, and apps tend to keep using energy in the background even after being turned off. My BB did the same thing. Ctrl-alt-del did the trick on it. Oh Well, just the nature of the beast.

    My phone was at 83%, so I shut it down an turned it on and it went to 76%, so I did a soft reset and it went to 91%. So soft reset does help to stop whatever is draining battery because in 3 hrs idle it should never do that. Its always after a full charge that I have to restart. Hate this bug

    I normally restart my L920 once or twice a week. I had a few problems of fast discharging during the night in a couple of occasions (like 70-80%) also if i always close all the apps opened in the background/multitasking and it was in airplane mode.
    It was strange since normally it can drain of max 3%, but I had the same episodes on my previous iPhone, and not only when it got a little older! Apart from a couple of apps which made it freeze I never noticed any particular slowdown also after a week w/o restart.

    I restart daily to get an accurate reading on battery life. Go into settings and look at the percentage of charge reported by "batter saver". Now reboot your phone and go look at the percentage again and you will notice it changes. For me it typically reports anywhere from 10-15% more battery charge than it did before the restart. I did this experiment with a friends Nokia 920 and had similar results. Not sure if its a battery issue or WP issue.

    Same here, exactly.
