Re: battery life with QtMoko

So this is how you suspend the phone, with manual lock :) I was
thinking you use power button to suspend it.

I don't want to lose 2 hours of suspend just because I talk 10 minutes
with the screen on. Other applications, like chess and fbreader can
block (?) screen dimming.

As for autounlocking when receiving a call/sms, I think is a bad
ideea, but I don't know what can be done without coding.

 If you lock the screen it should always suspend after 20s. I am using QtMoko
 with default values and i has worked quite nice so far and on the other hand
 i
 am not bothered with screen dimming e.g. when reading or playing chess.

 It's quite hard/impossible to set defaults so that everyone is happy. But
 any
 suggestions are welcome.

Re: battery life with QtMoko

2011-06-23 Thread Noel
I've started to keep NeoControl running all the time. With my
deepsleep/fixed phone, on resume I see the current between 12000-24000
(2.6.34/qtmoko). With my old battery showing 857000 for current full,
I guess it could sleep between 35 and 72 hours. The problem is that
when active, the current is between 25-35, about 2.5-3.5
hours. If I keep the screen on (talking or not) for 20-30 minutes,
which is not uncommon, I have no chance to use the phone the next day
without charging it.

This is with default settings, which are very dangerous: in power
management, when not plugged, the policy for 'dim light' is off, for
'display off' is off and for 'suspend' is off. This means that any
unnoticed sms or missed call will keep the screen on. I can change
these settings, but it bothers me that any event will unlock the
screen, the neo can make phone calls in my pocket or the touchscreen
will stay active while walking with no chance to autosuspend.

Hi!
I didn't make any precise measure but I can say that my neo after 32
hours is in (very) low battery, I only sent few messages (sms) and I
used the gps for 5 minutes.

Hi,
I've got the same kind of experience as Joif with my Freerunner / Qtmoko 
v35 / kernel 2.6.34


Regards,
Xavier.

Do you have deep sleep enabled? Is your battery in good condition?

I had 5 days - that was measured with 2.6.37 kernel - but that kernel had some 
bug for me which prevent from daily use (sometimes didnt wake or woken with 
vibrator on).

I havent tried current 2.6.34 kernel.

Deep sleep enabled and the battery seems to be in good condition. I use 
my moko as a daily phone so I can't make an accurate test for now. Five 
days is really good!
