I'm just saying basing a ROMs "battery performance" with the screen off is a pointless test. To me anyways its how long the sucker will last while I'm using it is all I care about.
And your right, not all phones /ROMs will perform the same under those circumstances. If you have more accounts that are synced, for example, I'm sure it will cause more of a drain.
Regardless I'm downloading this ROM now. I'll see how it performs compared to Jedi. So far I'm at 17 hours/3 hours screen time with 50 %. While downloading this ROM in the background haha. I'll report tomorrow evening on the results.

I really believe screen off is more indicative of performance in a controlled test environment. With screen on there can be a number of factors that have to be taken into consideration.
I can just keep turning my screen on with lowest brightness and do nothing or I can turn my screen on with highest brightness and keep zipping and unzipping zip files on my SD card while I am playing Angry birds.
The latter will be much more power consuming.
So you see what I am saying? Screen on time is not all equal. It depends what you do with the screen on.
Hope that explains what I am trying to tell you better.
