Keep in mind that the SoC was constantly running during that test, so
this should be ok. Normal usage assumes you use suspend-to-ram when
you do not actually interact with the device, that should give ~70
(without #1024 fix) or ~140 (with it) hours of "standby time".

and doesn't require manual intervention.
