Try saving the theme, etc you want to use to mass memory and see if it still happens.

(with only 2 hours of wi-fi and zero usage of 3G signal)
deep space bar, 27 Jan 2010thanks bud and do you come by this problem sometimes .when you set up a theme and you turn off... morethis is my first time hearing about theme problems, but there might be the following problems and/or solutions
-select the theme again, after the theme loaded, tap save or done (i dont think there is such tap button but if there is any)
-maybe the theme is activated, but still the same nseries background. tap and hold the main desktop to setup. tap the upper part of the screen to drop down options, tap change background, and select the background you please to activate.
-reinstall the theme (uninstall and install again) then restart your device, activate the theme.
-sometimes when you connect the phone from a computer via mass storage usb cable, the theme goes back to the default when it is disconnected. in this case, just re-activate the theme. (most of this problem occurs on symbian phones, specially when the theme is installed in the memory card, i dont know the case for maemo)
mickey, 27 Jan 2010i think approx 5hrs (at least) of continuous use including online tasks is fairly reasonable. ... morei believe so, though this is the 600mhz amr power cortex phone that i used that runs like this long in a fully charged battery. but if your only to use the n900 for just phone calls or text messaging and other stuff except wi-fi, the battery can last up to 24-36 hours.
Some tips which I follow to make the most out of the N900 battery.
1. Disable touchscreen vibration
2. Disable vibration mode for the profile
3. Disable bluetooth if not required.
4. Disable GPS/wifi
5. Don't have too many applications open (just have the ones you use)
6. Reduce the sound volume for the ring tones, Message / IM alert tones
7. Don't have any widgets on the desktop (I used foreca weather widget on my desktop and it drained my battery in few hours).
K, 26 Jan 2010Hello to all N900 users..
Have been looking at this phone for quite sometime. I have an N81 a... moreJust go for N900 and you won't regret it for sure. Battery is not a big issue considering the functionality of the phone. If you use it like a phone then the battery will last for more than a day. But if you fiddle around with camera, take lot of pictures and use video, talk for like an hour and browse for an hour, the battery won't last through the day.
I checked the battery of my N900 and it lasted for a day with the following usage.
1. Made calls for 1 hour
2. Use camera and took some 10 photos
3. took a short video
4. use GPS for like an hour.
5. browsing for like 1 hr.
6. play around with the applications for like an hour.
7. Bluetooth on through out.

When the battery is fully drained, the phone won't restart for a few minutes even while charging. You can try after 5-10 minutes. Make the sure the battery is fully charged, then run the OS update preferably through a wifi connection. It will update successfully. I just updated my N900 with the latest firmware without any issues.
