Hi Piotr,

If you have installed OpenNTPD, please try to remove it.
The init version seems to not battery friendly, because
it uses network per 3min.

I just modified some parameters and testing. If it seems to be OK,
I will release 2nd version.

Subject: Battery Life N800 + OS2008


I know battery life topic was brought to this forum, but now I'd like to ask about new OS2008 and battery life. I have noticed significant decrease since I moved to OS2k8. I didn't ask before as I was waiting for official release. Now I can confirm this is issue (in my case). Running on OS2007 I could use my nokia for about 5 days. Now it last for about 1 day and I have to re-charge. 
I know CPU works faster and this means more power as well as there are more improvements etc etc.  Is this only one explanation? I usually try to close all applications I don't need when not using my tablet.
Does anyone experience the same problem? Maybe this is coincidence and my battery/charger is broken? However it charges and  everything looks fine. 



P.S. I really appreciate new OS. Most applications I use is already ported. Everything is much faster and apart from my battery life concerns it looks fantastic. Very well-done Nokia!
