Any way to make the live tile update interval longer to save battery life?

I wouldn't mind setting the update interval for my live tiles to like 6 hours to save battery life, any way?

6 hours! Blimey... why not just turn them off completely?
Because then you'd get zero updates vs. only a few per waking hours of the day? I agree with OP, a 6 hour or so setting would be nice.

There is no way to set a delay on live tiles that I know of (if there is, it'd probably be an XDA-style hack). It's just on/off. I only have clock/date and weather apps set to live at this point.

I wish the live tiles had an alternate open option top. I hate when a cool article preview shows up on Discourse love tile, but then I actually have to open the app and search for the article. A right click or multi touch feature on the live tile to open and navigate directly to what is displaying would make these more useful. Hopefully in a future release.
