Well my logic behind it (whether correct or not is another matter) is that I only charge at night when I don't use the phone ,so really don't need wake set as high.
No idea if it makes a damned bit of difference or not
But if your phone doesn't wake up at night at all, why tweak the wake settings? I mean whether or not you change those settings will not matter at all if the phone never goes into wake state all night !
And as far as governors are concerned, let me try to explain, that since the inception of smartass, smartass v2 (aka virtuous), and the latest version - Reaper (should be called kickass, if you ask me!), there is no need to dial down the sleep state max clock speed at all. See, the way this smartass line of governors is designed, it has a built in screen for wake and sleep state. Just specify the max and min speeds you want your CPU to go to, and keep them same in both wake and sleep states... it will not affect power consumption at all...i am living example of this. (Refer my previous posts and screenshots). The smartass lineup automatically sleeps at the lowest specified clock speed (even if specified in the wake setup)
The upside of this setting is that the governor doesn't have to jump from a low maximum speed (specified in sleep) to a next higher clock speed (wake) when you wake up the phone...as the dialing up of CPU speed is well within the sleep parameters, thus allowing a jitter free and smooth wake up.
I hope this is making sense to you... and do correct me if i'm wrong. (This last line is particularly aimed square at lowveld!)
