They may well run longer with finer tweaking of the settings :)

My main point is that the journalling filesystem isn't a *huge* strain on
power resources (even if you can do even better with just ext2).

And the advantage of journalling is fantastic. The number of times I've
pulled the power cord out, mistakenly thinking the battery was in place... 
(I typically remove the battery when on AC, to sustain battery life)
