The lower slider will use some power whenever things are drawn on the screen, but on well-designed devices with hardware acceleration, this should be very little. And it shouldn't use batteries when the screen display isn't changing.
Yeah I was reading screen dims faq, it does say on older units this could be an issue. But the newer KFHD shouldn't be affected by this should it?
