I second that. As long as Airplane Mode is turned ON, the voltage coming IN will surpass the voltage being burned. My Vox is rooted and I have removed all the INQ and Globe2Go etc. crap. Always on Airplane Mode when reading. I have never had the "wake while sleeping" issue, unless it refers to the screen occasionally waking, and going right back to sleep. Who cares? I do that myself every night a couple times.
I've used Linux for many years and played with many minimal systems which made very good use of low-spec hardware, so I've no problem with this Vox. Uninstall what you will never use, don't run what doesn't need to, and your battery life will be very good.
