I read on a prime forum before that putting brightness in super ISP mode and then turn brightness all the way down did better than 30% in normal ISP mode. Has anyone tried that?

This is how brightness is governed on the Infinity, so I'll try that just after praying for the rain while running circles around the bonfire

I can see only one reason for this trick and this is a workaround for fooling smartdimmer, which is an obsolete one now, as we have the real solution.

I think system tuner would do the trick for you

^^ This or Tablet CPU Usage Monitor, but you won't see the fifth core there, it's invisible on the system level.

Have a look at this screenshot.

I think the 1500 MHz are running to much and that on all 4 Cores!
Something big is wrong here. The keyboard is doing hard to load the Tab while using it.

I didnt play anything in this time. Only surfing a little bit, facebook, Twitter and News.
And that in BALANCED Mode!

Hope for help and suggestions.

I've noticed that with the tablet docked my battery monitor numbers make no sence. I suspect the fact that tablet goes in and out of charge state is the reason.

Anyway, when trying for example OpenGarden to connect to my phone, and then giving up and packing it up, I notice 4 hours later it has used 60% of the doc, and 20% of the tablet (80% left on tab, 40% on doc) and they were both fully charged before I started.
Something seems to hang/be left behind and the tablet got very warm. Warmer than my looped antutu tests infact.

Smells like the basic idea of android is to blame here. I really wish they'd just nix that and let me choose between going back out of a program and closing it. Much faster and easier way to make sure what you want is running and not everything else.

Could it be that the CPU is broken in my Infinity? :banghead:

I've been doing some more tests and OpenGarden is my problem. If I disable wifi and enable bluetooth it goes into action.
Then it will prevent the TF700T from sleeping and the cores go in 1.5 GHz mode. No other mode is used if I reset stats before testing.
Leaving it for 30 mins with lid closed (docked) gives 30 mins in state 1500.
It gets quite hot, especially in a sleeve.

Enabeling wifi again and disabeling bluetooth makes OpenGarden enter stopped state, but it is still loaded and TF700T now goes into 1300 state. Still a insane power consumtion when it should be in deep sleep.

Can someone else verify this ?
I use CPU Spy to check states.

I would guess that there is some app that is running in the background that is causing such high CPU usage. If my tablet is not being used, it stays in Deep Sleep most of the time.

If you would reset to factory defaults, I'm sure you'd go back to "normal" CPU usage... It would be a good test regardless (just back everything up, just in case).
