That's right - I agree. But loading
part of a file into the cache might use more power than loading a lesser
part of a file into the cache. Still, you wouldn't expect it to be much -- but who knows?
It does sound like Mrs_Often just has a defective battery so it would be interesting to know if it is now operating properly.
