    Ok I just bought this handy app called Insomnia and Im pretty sure most of you knows what it does


    Now my question is does it save you battery while using it? or Does it drain it the same?

    Most likely drains it since it keeps it from sleeping, letting you keep your wifi on and running (which drains battery too).

    I'm pretty sure it drains, but less.

    It uses less..

    First scenario: You're using your iPod, wifi is on.
    Second scenario: Your iPod is in sleep mode.

    Now, with Insomnia, the power consumption would be more than the second scenario but less than the first scenario.

    It's same as the normal version, but lets you set a time period when Insomnia is on so that it isn't on all day. Battery drain is the same it just depends on how long you use it.

    Apparently the off switch is broken for insomnia pro.
