This reminds me of an issue I've been meaning to bring up, that annoys 
me sometimes.

When resuming the phone from suspend (e.g. with the power button), it 
usually takes longer for the phone to update the battery charge 
indicator than it takes for it to go back to sleep (since it's locked).

This makes it very hard to quickly check how much charge is left in the 

The problem doesn't seem to be updating the top bar, since the clock is 
updated immediately - like I think the battery level indicator should be.

I don't know where the problem is, or how/if it can be fixed, and 
haven't actually started looking into it much, but figured I'd throw it 
out there since we're talking about related things anyway.
