Power Manager Wake Locks

 Hi all,
     AFAIK, wake locks ensure a constant device state (for CPU,LCD
backlight, Keypad backlight) in between acquire() and release() of a
wake lock.
    What if there are two or more apps acquiring (rather trying to
acquire) wake lock at a same time? How are they handled? Who takes
this responsibility?
    Please put some light on these issues.

 I suppose acquire() just increases some hidden counter and the device
is turned on until all of the locks are released.

1. Loading the same Bitmap multiple times on Android

Hi, I'm pretty new with Android and I have a doubt about how the resource
loading works.

I'm trying to make a game drawing directly on canvas, and I'm loading the
bitmaps using "BitmapFactory.decodeResource(mResources,
R.drawable.my_image)", my doubt is about the way Android stores/loads these.
I'm going to have to load the same image a few times, so I think I need a
"ResourceManager" for my game, but the R class is confusing me.

When I call the "decodeResource", Android has to actually load the image in
memory or it just gives me a "pointer" to the first image it loaded (when
loading the same image twice or more)? I know I could try checking the
memory it takes when loading the same image lots of times, but I'm just
feeling lazy for that :-P

Thanks in advance.


2. ADT 0.9.4 not working on Mac 10.6 (at least for me)

First, let me say I just did this last week with 0.9.3 and SDK 1.6
successfully so I do know how to do it... :)

I have built a clean OSX installation and installed Eclipse 3.5,
downloaded SDK R3 for Mac and installed ADT as instructed.

When I click the Android icon on the toolbar it gives me the familiar
message that I have not setup the location of the SDK but when I click
the button it never brings up the window to set it up.

So, if I try to create an Android application there is no target to
select since no emulators, etc. have been created.

Has anyone else seen this and is there a workaround?
