Improved battery life

"battery life" has two meanings and it would be best to separate them so as to not give the impression that a given usage pattern will see improvement:

  1. how long will the battery operate the XO while it is doing useful work (backlight on at -- say -- middle intensity setting and continuous user interaction in -- for example -- write).
  2. how long will the battery allow the XO to retain work (or state or however you want to say it) while the XO is suspended.

These are questions which impact different parts of the XO hardware/software implementation and one is more or less important than the other in each deployment. (Example: if a school has intermittent electrical power, it may be possible to gang-charge batteries but not to operate the XOs from the power line for the entire school day. In that case, doing useful work from battery power for as long as possible is critical. In some other deployment, the XO might only be used in the class for a few minutes at a time throughout the day but needs to be instant-on. In that case, suspend time improvements are critical.) -- Davewa 17:09, 20 October 2008 (UTC)
