    Battery Saving Mode VS Standard Mode

    Is there a computing power difference between these two settings, or dose one just by default leave the backlight on a little less? What is the difference between the two?

    there is a computing power difference. with the power saver mode enabled, the cpu dynamically clocks itself between 160 mhz and 315 mhz depending on how much cpu power it needs. the standard mode sets the cpu to 315 mhz and leaves it there.

    it's in your best interest to enable the setting, it saves a lot of battery.

    this setting is not available ATT original version (black and grey) of the Q9h only the Silver version. ATT sucks.

    Not sure what the cpu speeds would be here but the Q9n is significantly higher than what you state for what IS the proper clocking for the Q9c. That said, the battery saving feature DOES net significant results. :) -Q

    Yeah, I was referring to the power settings on the q9h.

    If you have TCPMP installed, it will tell you your current CPU speed.

    Go to options, setting, and under general.

    so there is no downside per say...
    it lowers the cpu when not in use but when need be it cranks it up to the needed speed...right?

    Q-Area51 do you use this on your nap?

    Yeah, yeah . . . I have just the standard battery and I use the dickens out of my Nap and at the end of the day, sometimes two bars but mostly three. I think that it is effective. My power settings are all "never" with "auto backligh" enabled. :) -Q

    Mine also, and just checked my sons. I think it is the default setting on the Naps.

    The Nap is an extremely power hungry device with all it's bells and whistles,hence the custom battery. This was a smart choice to use it as default setting
