if it cannot get to 300MHz from sleep, the screen won't come on.

Just my opinion....and experience.
It can help with heat tho if you're having issues in that department

I'm neither and always UV by a bit. I also revert to troubleshoot if I run into any problems. In this case I'm betting a revert to stock voltages cures the OPs issues.

I'm all for anyone doing anything to their device.... That's what android is all about.

But undervolting and under clocking is just something I personally never got. I suppose aside from trying to curb heat issues. But not to prolong battery life. It just makes such a minor difference. I've never seen proof showing otherwise.

But, to each their own.

True that.

I look it it this way. Less heat equals less stress. Less stress equals longer life. Use any analogy you want but the theory is there. If I ever run into an issue with my device the very first thing I do is revert my UV settings. If it persists, at least I've ruled out UV.

I believe the idea of UVing devices comes from an era not that long ago. IE, inefficient processors. Modern(the last two years) processors don't seem to have that much inefficiency. Could be snake oil on my side. It's habit though.

I hear ya! Just see sooooooo many thinking they'll see big battery life gains.... And it seems they usually do this for battery more so than heat.

But yeah, I get the heat and stress part of it. Again, especially for games and GPS and what not.
