[debian/fso] w/o sim battery empties alarmingly fast

well, i have to confess, i fell off the waggon and bought an n900, too --  
already got the impression i was one of the last of the mohicans using the  
fr as sole phone (or phone at all).

anyway, now the fr doesn't have a sim card anymore, i expected the battery  
to last much longer than the usual 3 days -- but, actually, it goes flat  
very, very fast!
what does fso do when no sim is detected? imo it should disable everything  
related to telephony and thus save a lot of power, but that doesn't seem  
to be what happens.

the second best bet would probably be to manually diasble all kind of  
stuff in some config files, but which would that be?
but i would very much prefer the first scenario, allowing me to put a sim  
back in and use the fr as a phone w/o any changes.
