I dont quite understand what expected 10% additional battery life (when sound disabled). means; Are there any ways to completely disable the speaker? I have read on these forums that there is a slight hissing sound continuously coming out of the speaker.

Or are they reffering to disabeling the 'clicking' sound when the buttons are pressed?

The sound is now completely off when you turn it off, the Audio Chip goes offline.
