Merlijn wanted this to be off list, but ... I guess I want this archived.

Yeah, power management is a lot of fun :-(. And there are similar
problems on N900 and D4.

There's "off" mode on omap CPUs. It needs to be enabled to get real
power savings, but it is incompatible with some stuff, like with
display being on, and serial ports being enabled..

off mode is enabled by

echo 1 > /sys/kernel/debug/pm_debug/enable_off_mode

But that needs uart to be configured. From "demo/tefone", from unicsy

But... I believe I was able to enable the off mode, but I don't think
I got the days/weeks of battery life :-(.
