    Proximity sensor power consumption

    I wrote an application that runs in the background, and among other things, listens to the proximity sensore.

    Does anyone knows if listening to the sensor means more power consumption, or does the sensor is always turned on anyway?

    Does the sensor turned off when it has no listeners?

    Re: Proximity sensor power consumption

    The sensor is always turned on by default, so the power optimization would have been taken care of by Nokia. The reason why the sensor is there in the first place, is for the phone to disable all other touch functions when one is on a call.
