This is all with my FreeRunner.
144 hours, to be exact. Or, about 6 days of stand by time. Something
like 4 hours of active talk time. Looks like you could get 8 days and 5
of talk, but I like every thing turned on. I have GPS running, but with
out an SD card ;-). Currently using the built in APM for power
management. Keep in mind suspend/resume is unstable. As I have seen
many times. Still working on squashing the bugs. Currently do not have
a working SIM to test wake up on call.
Is there a way to stop the screen bumping issue? Perhaps unload the
module that runs the touchscreen until there is a wake event (Auk key)?
