Re: They're coming to take me away

"I long for the days when you turned these things ON and OFF without these elaborately choreographed Startup and Shutdown."

When my smartphone battery is low (the one I use for everything except phone functions), and I need to squeeze the most life out of it coz there will be a long time before I can charge it, I debate with myself whether it will be better to turn it off, and risk the lengthy startup song and dance sucking more life out of the battery than simply leaving it turned on.
