I'm pretty sure summerboard is COMPLETELY owning my battery life... like, before i installed it.. i could use aim, ipod, camera, web,,, w/e and my battery lasted AGES. i charged it over night. listened to ipod, browsed the web, for the 30 minute bus ride, texted throughout the day at school... on and off.. listened to ipod and browsed web on bus ride home and had about 1:30 minutes usage and not even a nitch knocked off my battery...

but after summerboard... i have about half battery by the time i get on the bus... this pisses me off because i really love this program!

anyone else have this problem?

YES i have brightness turned down.. wifi off.. bluetooth off.. don't say all that common sense stuff

the new versions of summerboard has the "keepwifion" feature that keeps your connection on in sleep mode. so that could be the drain, personally i haven't noticed the differnce because i turned wifi off... i don't know if it effects edge. but basicly my answer is: summerboard bypasses "shut-internet-connection-off" when its in sleep mode.

Where do you see this? Looking at the Summerboard preferences, I don't see anything related to wi-fi.

i don't know about any wifi involvement but i do know that summerboard is an app. meaning it is working against the iPhone to produce the illusion that the icons can be scrolled and what not. so that is where all the batter drain originates. i however haven't noticed any difference in my battery life. so i wouldn't think it would be an issue for you.

With WIFI on my battery took a big hit. I normally turn WIFI off but the other day had it on and the battery didn't last long at all. Today WIFI is off again and battery seems to be lasting like normal.

WIFI does that normally anyways.
