    Hello,

    I've just started using Cyanogenmod with different kernels so excuse me if this is an ignorant question, but I grabbed the bekit 5 slot 1Ghz LV kernel and it seems to be great so far. One thing I noticed though is that if I fire up SetCPU and check 'auto-refresh,' my CPU seems to toggle a lot between the min and max, even if I'm not really doing anything in the background. At first glance I would think that something like this would cause some battery issues since it's changing clock speed so often but for all I know this could be normal. Any info would be appreciated.

    Happens on mine as well and I'm not running CyanogenMod. I'd keep an eye on your battery, but it seems to be the norm.

    Running P3Droid Kernel with Cyanogen and does it on mine as well...don't really know why, but I suspect it's totally normal.
