So, I am using this widget and I don't know if this is going to help with power consumption, but I turned off the sync, turned off all sync settings for fb, twitter, and flckr to either update once a day or never. Everytime I want to sync, I just go to the power widget and turn the sync on and it updates all the different social media and then I just turn it off. It's nice because instead of going to them manually to refresh, I can just use that one button to refresh all. Edit: Nevermind, it turns off the entire mobile data. I thought it was just syncing. So, if you turn it off, you won't get emails or notifications or any of that.
