    Also note that SSH doesn't drain battery life when it's not being used - your WiFi being toggled on will do more to drain battery life than it will, as it'll constantly poll for networks, especially if you have Fetch or Location Services enabled. However, you can toggle it off with a BossPrefs plugin like the one mentioned previously, or just shut down WiFi entirely using the toggle in BossPrefs, which will keep the drain from happening as you won't be using WiFi, period.
