    Yep.

    If you install Backgrounder, and apply it to an Instant Messenger app (using Palringo), and then enable Insomnia, you can put your iPhone/Pod in standby and it will continue to work.

    Maybe it drains your battery, but it certainly uses less battery than having the screen turned on, right?

    Yep, and it vibrates.

    I don't know if this would work over 3G or Edge though, I know Insomnia prevents the iPhone from turning off the WiFi, but I'm not sure about other services, like 3G or the GPS... gonna try that later
