Standby screen picture

Hi,
I was wondering if using a standby screen picture will drain the battery faster than not using one.
My hunch is that it won't make a difference. Is this correct?
Thanks a lot

Shouldn't do.

Eink doesn't use power all the time an image is displaying - only to get the 'ink' particles into shape in the first place.

You could argue that using a standby screen picture would count as a page turn to bring up the 'screen saver' image, adding very slightly to the everyday battery use. However, the screen will flash black before clearing itself to a blank screen anyway, which is equivalent to a page turn. If you leave it without being in standby, the touchscreen will probably remain using some power.
