but my battery drain is ridiculous while asleep so im inclined to believe that something extraneous is going on behind the scenes
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.
Can anyone confirm that wifi is actually goes to sleep when the screen goes off? I've found the option stated above and made the appropriate selection "Keep Wi-Fi on during sleep" -> NEVER, yet the wifi does not go off when the screen blanks (even after 20-30 minutes).
Just a further comment. the last couple of builds the kindle has showed up as either AM or Amazon and the device is only recognized as an android phone. this causes the Kindle Fire Utility to work only part of the time. i noticed when rebooting that the Kindle is first recognized as a Kindle but then switches over to one of the aforementioned choices. i suspect something changed in the kernel (maybe the init file) is causing this problem. all attempts to install the proper drivers in windows have failed and i don't know enough about adb to make this work.

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.
