    Also why should that code on one device kill my uptime and on the
    other machine (my wall-plugged desktop) work just well? That doesn't
    sound right.

    Clearly opportunistic suspend is a workaround for battery-driven devices
    and no general solution. But it is not specific to android. At least
    not inherently. It could be useful for any embedded or mobile device
    where you can clearly distinguish important functions from convenience

    I really can't understand the whole _fundamental_ opposition to this
    design choice.
