Ive had some severe battery draining on a Glo HD. But that device went kaputt shortly thereafter, so it may have just been a hardware defect.

Ever since I've switched to my new H2O, battery endurance has been pretty good, and I've not noticed any unusual draining using the sleep cover with koreader.

Anyway, I've made two minor interface adjustments that I find useful for the way I use the device. Posting it here just in case anyone else finds them useful. It's basically two additional icons in the reader menu. I just color-inverted the light and home button, cos I'm lazy. One allows for one-click light-toggling. I find that useful, since the H2O doesn't have a light button. And the other one is for shutdown. Which may be convenient for people experiencing battery drain in sleep mode.

The attached zip contains 3 files. The .png files go into koreader/resources/icons/, and readermenu.lua replaces that file in koreader/frontend/apps/reader/modules/. (Make a backup of the old version, so you can switch back if for whatever reason you don't like it.)

I just checked it out with the latest nightly build (20150808), and it still works. Cheers.

Edit:
See the updated version here
