Same but my wireless is configured, just hardly used.

I can think of a few. Font (possibly non-standard font rendering but definitely size), screen refresh rate, sleep/power off settings, reading life event checking and database updates..... Actually typing this I've just had a further thought: with various social reading aspects and marketing being woven into the UI, I wonder if we also have periodic background checking for connection to the outside world which loops when wifi is off?

There's a wall-of-silence around power issues which suggest that Kobo policy is not to comment. This unhelpful stance means I expect they're going to be fielding a lot of RMA'd units.
