My best times were from using some of Jason's patches. I'll kill radio, GPS, WIFI, and leave only the phone on, when I am expecting a call. The only time it gets confused is if you try to manipulate the data modem when the radio is off. It effectively sends the thing into roam only mode and requires you to change some extra settings, lol.

I haven't ever noticed any difference with brightness. This reminds me of all those companies across the country trying to save energy by removing the flourescent tubes from their drink machines. The funny thing is, while it may save a little, most of the power was bring sucked by the ballast (transformer) which they usually left as is, meaning it was on whether the bulb was inserted or not . I know everyone says that even on laptops it makes a difference, but with older fl tubes, the inverter is going whether the screen is on and bright or on and dim, yes? I have it turn OFF quickly and let the ambient sensor handle the brightness. If the pre is LED lit I can't comment, I don't know enough of how those work.
