Thanks for sharing your experience!
Your guess is right, it ran all night and drained your battery. Some
screensavers on KISS60 are marked as 'Battery Friendly' (check Rick's
World), some of them are not. We highly recommend screensaver designers
to stop their movies after ~10 seconds to avoid such problems, but
that's not always possible for some types (i.e clock). Due this
situation is not controlled by KISS60, it's a Flash Lite side design
issue. In general case power saver pops up and usually stops Flash Lite
player, but I guess in your case this didn't happen. I also remember in
Series 40, some screensavers stop, some don't.
It's same for start-up. Due such a feature requires Symbian Signed, we
didn't include that in Beta release. Once everything is tested well, we
will bring that on.
We are also planning to add Flash Ringtone capability in next releases.
We thought it would be interesting :)
