STEPS TO REPRODUCE THE PROBLEM:
Add AP News widget to desktop then run powertop. You'll see 100+
wakeups/second from Hildon Home. Remove AP News widget and this number goes
AP News Widget should not cause wakeups when not in use
AP News Widget drains battery!
EXTRA SOFTWARE INSTALLED:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US) AppleWebKit/532.1
(KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/188.8.131.52 Safari/532.1
It's a good question. I don't know about any feedback channel that I could use
for these ones. I have sent an email to the maintainer and will care about it.
Two weeks and two emails later still no answer by Tapio... :-/
What version of the AP News Widget to you have installed? Do you see this when
the widget is on the active screen, or when it is in the background?
ap 1.0 m5
happened whether or not the widget was on the active dashboard
That version is the installer, not the app itself. Look for AP News Desktop
Widget. It should be something like 0.2.19.
So I just re-tested with version 2.20 (I uninstalled the widget after I
originally reported the bug so I don't know what version that was).
The issue seems to be better for the most part now. I am no longer seeing
thousands of new wake ups in a 30s period from hildon-desktop when the ap
widget is loaded.
It does seem like the widget doesn't scroll as much as it used too, perhaps
that was the fix?
Fix verified in AP News Desktop Widget 0.2.20
The problem reported here should be fixed in the update released today for
public: The Maemo5 update version 2.2009.51-1 (also called "PR1.1" sometimes).
