I appreciate the comment regarding Smart Actions offering you a suggestion, this is good detail and a place to start testing from.

    Everyone else,
    I can't do a full diagnostics on this forum, so if anyone wants us to investigate your case go to my forum on the Motorola site. https://forums.motorola.com/hives/fd31b6b114/summary
    Running Smart Actions Version 2.1.2.0

    I don't remember exactly what smart actions I used from the recommendations. I used two. One was related to when power is below 25%, and the other was related to changing ring tone at night.

    After the phone rebooted, I disabled both smart actions and shut everything I could down related to smart actions (such as "Suggestion notifications"). Battery life appears to be back to normal. I am not using any smart actions. I think they are a good idea, but have not tried again.

    I had the same problems. Smart Actions was pegging my CPU at over 80%! My Razr Maxx was running at over 100 degrees and dying after 6 hours. I hit 'Clear cache' on Smart Actions and that didn't help. I then tried 'Clear data' and everything cooled down. Today I've been on battery for 12 hours and I'm still at 40%. I'm running Smart Actions 2.1.2.0.

    I'll try turning on some of my rules back on tomorrow (they are still there, so I guess 'Clear data' doesn't really clear the data!) and see what happens...

    Mine does the same thing. Smart Actions doesn't do it all the time, but every once in a while (like every 2 weeks or so) it bites me. The first time I had a problem with Smart Actions, it was in a night time profile while I was sleeping, and plugged into the charger. When I woke up in the morning, the phone was hot to the touch and had less than 10% battery life (PLUGGED IN!). At that point, I stopped using Smart Actions, realizing it was poorly written and harmful to my phone battery's health. I have been using Tasker (MUCH better, IMHO) for 1.5 months, and still get Smart Actions using > 50% of battery life every once in a while, as mentioned above. I have just been rebooting my phone when that happens, as killing the app with the Droid Razr Task Manager doesn't seem to be effective.

    I am running 2.1.2.0. A friend just suggested uninstalling the update to revert SA back to 2.0.70. That seems like a valid suggestion, as I do not recall SA exhibiting any of this behavior prior to the update. I will keep you posted. I look forward to the long-awaited ICS upgrade, so I can prevent the app from ever running.

    Cheers,
    Paul

    Hi All,
    It appears there is a issue with cell tower ID's causing Smart Actions to behave poorly. So... you guys were right, I really appreciate all your feedback to help find this odd bug. We have a fix and will update in an upcoming release. I don't have a specific date, but we are working hard to get it wrapped up as quickly as possible.
