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

Its simple read before asking and use the search button and always be thankful its FREE!!!

Devices : HTC HD2 (Sold/broken), HTC One X (has my sister now), HTC One M8 (current) (changing roms always after few weeks of use and testing)

Renovate 4.x + elementalx kernel

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.
