No I haven't. I created the patch just an hour ago. So far it's working.

Maybe it will consume more energy, maybe less (the light is off so that counts for something). There are other entries in the crontab file (which run every 15 minutes) and the cpu frequency governor is set up to 'ondemand' so IMHO it won't eat much of your energy.

Yes it should be in the dev section but I know of no way to move it. Maybe a moderator can move it? Thanks.
