    i was wondering about this also. I was also curious if the number of apps on the home screen uses more battery for the display.

    The more a widget updates the more battery resources it'll use. This is only natural... (using data/syncing will use juice)
    You can check the amount of battery consumption by pressing Menu > settings > about phone > battery use. (if you think something is using excessive battery this is the place to check)

    The more apps on the home screen might make a difference but I wouldn't think it would be anything noticeable. The display is gonna be the no. 1 battery consumer on your device either way.
