Any of you guys have info about sleep mode? I'd like to modify it to keep some processes running 24/7 without pulling the full 40w all the time.

I've not done much digging but it seems non obvious as android doesn't use run levels. I'm a linux admin(PBX's and such), just getting to grips with android.

Thanks

Sleep means pretty much the same thing it means on a laptop - the CPU cores are turned off, but can be woken up by external interrupt (in this case, the bluetooth stack registering the presence of a controller). If you're trying to run code 24/7, it's only going to use the power required to keep those processes running, it doesn't run in poll mode or anything.
