Overlocking, what are you running with SetCPU?

    For those of us who are overclocked, what settings are you running in SetCPU? Trying to decide if it's worth it to lower it when sleeping. On one hand you would think that the applications would scale back automatically with no need to set a sleep setting, but on the other hand maybe not.

    I swear that I notice a lag when unlocking if I have a sleep profile set to 125/250...anyone else experience that?

    There seems to be a small lag if you set your sleep lower, however I have noticed considerable battery drain if set to overclocked mode constantly.

    Overclocking uses more power, I don't care what anyone says. I can usually get my phone to last about from 10am to around 8pm normally. After overclocking it seems about 30%-40% shorter battery life if I leave it on overclock constantly.

    I rather deal with the slight delay than have my phone die completely on me.

    I really wish the slider on SetCPU was more accurate/flexible. I want to try a max of maybe 200 or 300 for sleep. That may be enough to prevent the lag, while still saving power.

    Yes I also noticed lag when waking from 125 so I bumped it to 250, then back down to 125 after a couple days to conserve battery and just deal with lag when waking.

    The delay irks me for some reason, even though it's probably only like .25 seconds.

    I'm going to try to set it to 250/550 on sleep and 250/950 on wake and see.

    I have 125 sleep and I notice no delays when waking. I have not, however, had my calibrated in weeks and weeks. :)

    You might also want to test 250/250 in sleep to see if it helps. If the phone is not busy it may be on 125 most of the time, so keeping it at a constant 250 during sleep would use more power, but it might help with the delay, without having to increase the max speed above 250.

    It also could be due to the SetCPU app changing profiles at the same time you wake the phone.

    Forgot to say that I'm one of the lucky few that's getting better battery performance with Bugless Beast than pre-root. It may have to do with the very strong cell signal I have and Screebl (I started using it right before rooting and romming).

    I was using 125/250 last week for sleep and didn't notice any issues. I switched to 125/125 today and it was laggier than I wanted it to be, especially when answering calls.

    I changed it to 125/550 and now experience no issues coming out of sleep on the unlock screen, or answering calls straight from sleep.

    True. I just can't stand the lag when waking up. Gonna give 250.550 a whirl.

    I'm at 250/125 sleep and either 800/125 or 950/125 normal, with a 550 max for charging. Have not noticed any lap upon wake, but sometimes the profile will get stuck on a lower setting when I pull it from the charger.

    My battery life indeed got better from 550-->800mhz, without setCPU profiles enabled. I'm testing other configurations at the moment (I don't notice much of a speed improvement between 800 and 950mhz, so that may be the sweet spot for me...)
