Program doesn't need to show up in "top" at all to decrease the device
use-time from a week to a day, for that it's enough for a single process
to wake up once a sec and do nothing else (i.e. <1% CPU use).
It prevents CPU from sleeping.

Ok, WLAN + Bluetooth and some apps using net frequently (say at one
minute interval or more frequently) could start explaining the use-time.
