Default Question about Ryans One-Click Lag Fix

Ok. I used Ryan's one click lag fix in the market place to root and do the lag fix on my captivate. However I've noticed that since the lag fix I'm getting significantly lower battery life. I went from 16 hours a charge to 7. Is this the trade off? or am I the only person with this issue??

i havent heard that before but i would do a battery pull and see if that helps the battery any next charge. i had some program running called "media server" and it drained my battery extremely fast and i have no idea what it was, maybe something like that happened on yours

Has anyone uninstalled the lag-fix and noticed their battery life increased ?

unrooting wont remove the lag fix, you have to actually do the remove lag fix option

when I remove the lag fix, is there a particular order I should do this? because there are a few options that I'm given in regards to removing things.

I don't want to jack up my Cap and I'm new to Android. Any help is appreciated. Thanks

A good reason not to apply these dirty "lag fix" hacks, honestly. Given what we know of them, their risks and their side-effects.
