Can anyone suggest if there is any additional battery drain at all when suspending a J2ME application as opposed to exiting (which exits the app and shuts down the JVM)?
Thanks!

I don't know what device you are asking about, but I'll go out on a limb here and say it doesn't matter a single bit whether your Java application is active, suspended, or completely stopped. Your battery life will be about the same.

However, if your MIDlet is sending/receiving data over the air, your battery life will be significantly impacted. If you are playing music or holding the backlight on, you will see a noticable effect. Simply burning CPU cycles isn't going to matter much.
