Whatever you do don't use "power save"

Phone won't wake in that mode.

I just set it as 100-1200 interactive. Then set a profile when the screens off 100-600 conservative.

As long as the profile is set from 200mhz - (200-1200mhz) the phone won't shut off and you won't have to remove the battery I had this issue on my phone....

That's because you had it set on "ondemand" I had the same exact issue for a long time before I figured out that was the problem. It has something to do with the kernel doesn't support it right with setcpu or something. I read it somewhere on this forum. I've had it set at 100 min for the last 3-4 weeks and it's never not turned on (as long as it ISN'T set for ondemand).

I'll bump this thread to ask a question.

Around the time I installed SetCPU, I noticed a HUGE drop in battery life. To be honest, I'm not sure if SetCPU is the problem, or if I changed something else on the phone and that's the source of my problem. Anyone know anything that I could have changed unknowingly that caused my battery life to suck so hard.

Don't use set cpu if you can avoid it. Sre sets you to 1.2 ghz and unhelpful supplies a script if you are comfortable doing that.

Limiting speed with set cpu had little positive influence. As long as the scalling is working the cpu should idle with the screen off any how. The only situation I would change the clock is during an overheat condition but I'm running without set cpu all together.

If I'm interpreting unhelpful right the next kernel will make use of user space in set cpu and allow many new things including under voltage to save battery and the creation of custom clocks not written into the kernel so you aren't bound to his preferences.

Where can you do that at? Is that where you make your own cpu speeds?

Use NSTools in any ICS ROM with Icy Glitch kernel.
