We are well aware of software changes we need to make in order to 
improve battery and have simply not had the time to do this. You can 
expect much better battery life when we implement these changes.

In fact if you look in the archives of the kernel mailing list you will 
see that a tremendous amount of progress has happened over the past few 
days. I think the current SVN code supports a much improved suspend mode 
that my very simple testing suggests should last for well over 12 hours. 
And work continues.
