Just an observation: I don't bother spinning my HD down and on the
odd occasion when I've forgotten to turn on the power at the socket
(d'oh) I've managed to scrape nearly 6 hours of life (light editing
and web browsing) out of my A20p, which iirc is significantly longer

_that_ much of a drain. It may be more of an issue with a journalling
