3 hour mark?

Is there something with the power settings on the Maemo?

I noticed that once Kismet hits about 3 hours 15 minutes it just stops
receiving anything packet wise even though once it went to overnight.

Twice it stopped at 3 hr and almost 15.

Is it wlan0's power options that iwconfig wlan0 power off should fix?
