Question Power Management Settings - which are safe to turn off?

Hi all,

I'm using Schap's Advanced Config to tweak my TD. I've now come to the Power Management settings (or 'Power Managment', as Schap calls them...) and I was wondering what these different settings actually apply to, what the individual settings mean, and which are SAFE to turn off with normal use:

- SD Memory
- AsyncMac1
- Irsir1
- PPTP1
- L2TP1

Thx.

Interesting... even through I install your cab, when I enter Schap's Advanced Config after soft resetting the device, all the power management features still appear as "Enabled". Any explanation for this?

okay i must admit this thread confused the heck out of me.
i thought it's advisable to turn on power management for all of the above mentioned items.

when i first checked on a stock rom, these were all disabled, so i enabled them.

are you saying now that they should be disabled for improved battery life?

In Schap's Advanced Config under Power Management it says that disabling these settings will improve battery life.... but I don't know which settings are SAFE to turn of with normal use. That's why I started this thread.

No, it says enabling those settings will improve battery life.
"Enable or disable power managment for xyz. Power managment reduces power consumption when xyz is not used."

So I enabled all those settings, but I don't know if that changed anything at all.

The registry setting is: DisablePowerManagement
so if you want to enable power management (i guess you will, to extend battery life) you should set it to 0

I have no idea whether schaps advanced config sets this to 0 or 1 as i'm not using it.

Okay, I'll try that. Any reason why you haven't disabled "Irsir1"?
