| Something wasnt right - the next resume X didnt come back leaving a

Huh.  Well that's more normal, but no idea what was eating that power
before, it's ~1.7W...  It sounds like the kind of drain if you were on a
call, GSM side is the only thing that power hungry AFAIK, unless you had
it in host mode and a device like WLAN stick (or room heater :-) )
plugged in.  Even internal WLAN is only meant to be 400mW during TX.
