    When did extended controls become a battery hog?

    I delayed going to GB for a long time and finally loaded 602 and stayed rooted stock for a while but the battery life was bad, I went to Apex 2.0 RC3 same, Shuji same thing. I used to get almost 30 hours on Apex 1.4 without issue now i was lucky to get 20 hours on anything. On a whim (because I saw system was high battery usage and noticed Extended Controls had added a battery saving mode) I removed it. This morning I woke up to over 90% battery like normal. What is going on?

    Also what happened to "battery saver mode" where you could set a quiet/low usage time?
