Default [Q] CM3602 Light sensor & Battery Drain

Hi Guys,

My hox has dreadful battery life (less than one hour screen on time). Looking at the battery usage, the Android System is using over 50% of the battery, with all that battery usage being used up by the CM3602 light sensor. Is anyone aware if this is a normal battery drain? Or if there is anything I can do to stop the light sensor destroying my battery life?
I'm running Android Revolution HD 31.3 with their kernel.

Cheers,
Tom

Same here.. Any ideas pls?
I think the light sensor is used by bottom buttons... To automatically turn on every night or low light

That's a good idea, I might try a rom where the backlights can be completely disabled. However my volume button cable is snapped at the moment, so I can't flash a new rom until a new cable arrives.
