Well in the case of the N8x0 when booting up the screen brightness was
up to its maximum.
When booting up all the tablets chips and fishes uses maximum energy
until the PM kicks in and
takes control of everything.
This consumes A LOT of energy.
An N8x0 in offline mode (idle) consumes much less energy in a night
than its minutes-long start up.
