OK, I guess I don't understand all the details, need some kind
of common example I guess.

So for example, if I leave ping running in a a terminal, do you
have some way of preventing that from eating the battery?

In my scenario that program would keep on running until the
battery runs out, or something stops the program. But the system
keeps hitting retention mode in the idle loop.

How do you deal with programs like that?

Do you just suspend the whole system anyways at some point,
or do you have some other trick?

Regards,

Tony
