I left my DR for 4 days, it was around 75% charged and it was flat as the proverbial pancake when I came back. There are still a few issues to reslove I think. Checking the lights after a shutdown was a good trick in previous versions as it didn't always shut down correctly. In V1.6 though, I still check the buttons and Lights, but that now appears okay.
So, as I stated above, for it to go flat in 4 days with no use suggests some other mechanism. It was in its cover and there were no Flourescent lights on

But why there is much issues? Is it difficult to implement the power management for such a small device? Remember it is not a linux in a computer.
