using cpu spy, it says that it does in fact go into deep sleep. according to mine anyway
but my battery drain is ridiculous while asleep so im inclined to believe that something extraneous is going on behind the scenes

Great work hashcode,

I have four kindle's connected to my network. When I started updating them with new kernel all are coming online with same mac address.

Any one have a clue where I should start looking to change? Any help apreciated.

I am also having an issue with it coming up as an unknown device on win 7. Well build 5.2 did, haven't tested build 6 yet, but I'm assuming the same.

Also, having CRAZY battery drain. It doesn't seen like the fire is actually going into deep sleep. Dropped 50% battery in about 4hrs with no use. I left the house, and came back to a dead kindle.

Same here - crazy battery drain.

That's one of the reasons I started looking at wifi. Usually when wifi "sleeps", there is a re-initializing (re-connecting to the wifi network) that happens, however that's not the case -- wifi appears to never really sleep, at least for me.

DONATE TO ME
I'm currently working on the 1st attempted fix of the banding/striping issue on the display when resuming and the battery drain / charging issues.

It's taking me a bit to troubleshoot and work through some issues.

I appreciate the patience. As always please be careful while using the new kernel. Power the device off when not in use and leave it connected to USB when you can while using it.

Thumbs up Thanks Hashcode

First off great work Hashcode - really amazing!

the striping issues others have reported has not happened on my device. since i have been lurking around here for a while i did watch the dev on this kernel. My theory is that with the two different displays only one type is striping/banding, as i have not had any issue with that even after leaving my kindle asleep all day (over 12 hours)

i am noticing the battery drain however - and i dont know if this is normal but my led seems to stay green when the device is asleep. i will continue to hunt down bugs and seeing as i cannot post in a dev forum yet i will update my findings here in the general section. Hopefully my limited knowledge will help

Thanks Again,
D.L33T

Hashcode, I know you can't be everywhere at once, so I don't know if you have seen this.

I also had it on "Wifi Never" and my wifi wasn't going off, so I got Green Power (free) from Play Store. Changed my KF sleep policy to Keep Wifi on during sleep- Always and in Green Power selected "override wifi sleep policy", which is actually selected by default. So, just check manage wifi and let it do it's thing.

Now, when I turn off the screen my wifi goes off. When you turn the screen back on, there is a slight delay in wifi coming back on....but it is slight. I've only been using it for a day or two but it appears to be helping with the battery a bit. It's a good workaround until Hashcode gets it fixed.

concerning videos, i had full screen in the landscape mode when using my browser to watch Amazon instant videos when using build 3. with build 6, i can watch these videos again but portrait mode actually displays a larger picture than landscape mode. in build 3 it was exactly the opposite (i used to have a small picure surrounded by a black screen in portrait mode this is now what i see in landscape mode in build 6).

Thanks again, for all your hard work, Hashcode! I hope I have provide enough information to help you debug these problems.
updated information re: Prime video. I turned my display all the way up and now i have 3/4 screen in landscape. full screen in build 3 must have been allowed by brightness. also sound was better in build 3 now need headset to hear.
