Is that halving the theoretical suspend time (I thought someone was
claiming a suspend life on about 100 hours) or the real suspend time?
If we're talking about reducing suspend time to 50 hours, I'd be fine
with that.  Honestly, I don't think it'd be that much of an issue as I
would not expect that LED to be on for long.  The point of lighting
the LED would be to get my attention if I was away from my phone when
a call or sms came in.  Obviously the LED would be cleared once I
checked the event.  So, for my usage, I wouldn't expect that LED to
ever be lit for more than 30 minutes.
