So while the actual cards may not draw much power, you need to worry about any Synergy-powered services those cards rely on in the background, as those are a chief power draw on the Pre.
    Yes, but that occurs with cards open or closed, so it's really not an issue with keeping cards open (unless I'm misunderstanding your point).

    With email, tasks, messaging & Agenda open, and light usage, I'm averaging about 5% battery loss per hour, with GPS & Wifi on. No complaints so far with keeping cards open
