    I usually switch my phone off overnight to charge, but every so often I will keep it on just so that I can monitor battery usage and wakelocks, just for peace of mind.

    Normally, my GS2 consumes between 1-4% overnight, but last night I had an email come through, and power went down by 13%. I could see the battery graph going along steadily almost flat initially as normal, then drop suddenly, obviously when the email came through.

    Its surprising the power those 2 LEDs consume!

    A handy feature in custom roms would be able to give BLN a time range, so you could switch it off through the early hours if required.

    The Pro version of BLN Control allows you to do exactly that, as well as giving fine control over the duration and time-out period. ;)

    Supporting small-scale developers who produce specialist apps like this gets you major brownie points with the Android gods. ;)

    I wasn't. It makes you irresistible to the opposite sex and guarantees a lottery win too.*

    *It also turns you into a compulsive liar. :D
