Yes, i had seen this behavior, it's something with first run on the device. Can you make a test, go to settings (last tool item on the main screen), make sure that DefaultQVGA skin is selected and save settings. Then restart program. If it helps?
Anyway, i must fix it

Good job presenting these low level power settings and offering control in such a user friendly way!

Those monitoring features you are planning would be a very welcome addition. Perhaps in the future, users could share their best practices how to save battery. We could also export and share our battery saving settings file, for others to restore and check if it works for them.
