Description:
There have been several discussions on the public openSUSE mailing
lists, e.g.
http://lists.opensuse.org/opensuse-factory/2008-01/msg00157.html where
people complain about resource usage or garbage from beagle.
I suggest that we analyze the current situation and check where are
real problems and consider solutions. One option would be to make it
easier for users to not enable beagle on their systems.
Note: The feature request is about getting a better acceptance by our
users of our indexing technology - and therefore let's figure out what
are the problems they are hitting in real life.

Note: powertop advises "Suggestion: Disable or remove 'beagle' from
your system. Beagle is the program that indexes for easy desktop
search, however it's not very efficient and costs a significant amount
of battery life.".

Yes, this is well known and was covered extensively last year and
caused by polling for battery status in some cases.
0.3.2 uses hal to detect battery status:

Also part of it was a mono issue:
