    I've been, just to be safe, when not using my phone dropping it to 250 mhz, which is the lowest my kernel allows, but do I really need to do that, I just thought about it, and I guess if I have the max set to 1.1 as long as when it's not being used it won't run that high I guess.
    So yea, should I bother adjusting the CPU speed between when I'm using it and not or does it not make a difference as the CPU won't run hard when the phone isn't being used.

    Why aren't you using the profiles in SetCPU??

    That's what they are for....set the Sleep/Standby profile to 250/250 that way anytime your screen is off, it will stay at 250

    Ya, no need to be OC when the phone is sleeping. I also lower it when charging.

    Only problem is, I used to drop it to 250 when I would put it down, now I just set the profile, but now when I turn on my phone it's at 80 when it used to be at like 56 or 60 or so (old house, living room is frigid).
