    Well I like the Mario wallpaper but someone told me it consumes more battery than the bubbles one... Is this true that some live wallpapers consume more battery even if it says 2% on the battery status thing

    The live wallpapers use CPU power to run, so it would make sense that if you had a more active wallpaper, making the phone think more, it would eat more battery power.

    I am thinking that maybe the live wallpaper even uses battery while the phone is in suspend, or screen is off...whatever the correct terminology for that is.

    Anyone know if this is true?

    I don't know if its true or not. According to the battery status screens, my live wallpaper doesn't use that high a % of battery. But, I'm using Beautiful Weather Live, and most of the time there isn't that much activity.
