    Make sure to turn that off at night, unless you wake up periodically to stare at the screen ;)

    Use Peek. Interval and Always On lead to high battery drain, as it happened on my 720

    Can you explain what the Peek setting actually does.

    peek - couple secs after locked screen - then only turns on when it detects movement on the proximity sensor (hand wave, or taking it out of your pocket)

    use peek. and make sure to use night mode 'on ' at night at least for 9-10 hrs, it saves the battery a lot at night.

    FYI when set on "peek" and plugged in charger (or wireless) behaves like always on :)

    Glance has only been offered on Lumia 720 Amber to keep population happy. It really shouldn't be there considering Nokia's selling point for L720 was "Smartphone with long battery life". With IPS LCD, Glance is only good enough for draining your battery even faster. Dont use it. Just press the middle button and have your own glance at the time and put it back into the pocket. That saves battery. And with Nokia hardware, you dont have to worry about button getting damaged due to excessive use

    Peek - (I recommend this)
    Auto-off timeout becomes much shorter. 15 seconds I think?
    Can be woken up by waving over proximity sensor or taken out of pocket.

    I use this on my IPS LCD - equipped 920 and love it. but do know it uses up more power than its AMOLED counterparts like the 820, 925...

    Interval -
    On for 15 minutes (?) (except when the proximiy sensor detects its against an object e.g. pocket, then it turns off)

    Always On -
    I wonder what this does.

    Tips:
    -Always On and Interval will behave like Peek if you're on battery saver.
    -Likewise, Peek and Interval will behave like Always On when you're charging.
