    Has anybody seen their 3G turn into a battery hog after enabling multitasking in one of the 4.X firmwares?

    I had a pwned 4.0 without multitasking, and it worked like a charm.

    I then got bold, and enabled multitasking when I pwned 4.1. The result has been a battery-sucker. (And no, its not cuz I'm accidentally running a crapload of apps in the background - I checked on that. Nor is it WiFi, I always have it off.)

    The only factor that I can see between my two extremes is the enabled option of multitasking.(?)

    I had multitasking on my 3G as well. The hardware simply can't deal with it. I'd turn it off if I were you. Shouldn't be harder than editing a plist file, or you might be able to find something on Cydia.

    I run multitasking, along with homescreen wallpaper on my iPhone 3G and haven't noticed much different in standby time. However, whenever I'm finished with an app I get rid of it from the multitasking bar so I suppose that helps. There is considerable lag and battery drain if I'm playing a game etc and have about 4 other apps running though. :/
