    standby vs keyboard lock?

    Advertisement



    Has anyone noticed a battery drain more using standby mode instead of keyboard lock? I was using the * key to lock keys but switched today to the new sena case which invokes the magnetic sleep function. Normally with medium use I still have 2 bars left at night but tonight I only have 1. Was just wondering if that had any affect.

    I have it setup to lock when I slip it into my T-Mo case and I usually only have to charge it every other day.

    I use the password protection that auto locks after 15 minutes. Not sure what mode that puts the Pearl in.

    FWIW, I charge mine every night if it needs it or not.

    I prefer the stand by(sleep) mode rather than locking it and hitting *talk to unlock.
