Just curious : is the n800 really supposed to last "days" when connected
via Wifi (with full WLAN Power Save mode enabled), without any
disconnect timeout and anything doing network access on the wifi link ?

When I check battery applet (which is really great btw), I'm never sure
if the "in use" time is applicable when being idle AND wifi connected.

I know I disable network auto-connect and set disconnect timeout to 5min
because I had bad experience with first IT2007 version (before full WLAN
Power Save mode gconf key were given here). Maybe I should try it
