Uhh...i guess that was a shot in the own leg ;)
Somehow i used to think swap is used only if RAM is exhausted. So if you ditch swap you would simply kill processes instead of getting slower (and using up battery). But maybe i'm wrong.
But independent from the swap question, using ramdisks to save power is basically a nice idea.
