    I like and use the low voltage 800 mhz "jdlfg" kernel, but am wondering why 400 mhz is as low as I can set it for sleep/standby. I thought I had read somewhere that their work on the 400mhz slot sipped as much power as the 250mhz on others. Anybody know something about this? I'm looking to keep the sleep/standby as low as possible to gain some battery life.

    You read right, my friend.

    jdlfg uses the same voltage setting at 400 as 250 takes, usually.

    i wish he still included 250 so we could get even lower power, tho...

    I don't think the phone would handle much lower voltage, seeing how most people had issues when kernels first had the option for 125, and now the lowest they are is 250.

    i just mean that if you had a 250 MHz setting using the same voltage as, eg your 400 MHz setting, then it would draw less power than other kernels at 250 MHz. and if your kernel is stable at 400 MHz, it should be stable at 250 MHz with that same voltage.

    the 400 slot is the same voltage as the 250 slot....what are you missing here? or what am I missing here? 400 lets the phone wakeup faster than it would if set at 250, and uses the same power, so why would you need a 250 if 400 has better performance with the same power consumption.

    you are absolutely right that you get the same power consumption at better performance. what i would like is the same performance with better power consumption. most of the time my device is in sleep mode. i don't need the extra 150 MHz; 250 MHz is fine when my phone is doing nothing. and with jdlfg kernels i could get that same performance with a lower voltage, and therefore less power consumption, making my battery last longer!

    i'm really not trying to make a big deal out of this, but i do want people to understand what i'm saying. does that make it clear?

    I get what you are saying but I am not sure its possible. I dont know much about kernels and voltages and what not but I do know that speeds and power required for the speeds is no linear. It might be that he can only accomplish this at 400.
