    I use the WiFi on at home rule:

    Trigger: Location (home address)
    Actions: WiFi on

    This turns on my WiFi when at home and turns it off when I leave.

    Haven't really explored the other options. For work reasons I may have an action do auto text reply to incoming phone calls when Bluetooth is enabled. I haven't needed the power savings so far with the Razr Maxx....the battery is already plenty.

    I modified the built-in "Battery Extender" smart action to the following:

    Triggers: Display : off , Charging:Not Charging , Motion Detector:No Movement
    Actions: GPS : off , Cellular data : disable

    Disabling cellular data when not actively using the phone probably doubles my battery life. The trade-off is that it takes the phone about 15-20 seconds to enable the cellular radio and connect to 4G. This mostly useful for when I'm at the office and the phone is just sitting on my desk. Sometimes I disable the smart action if I'm in a situation where I want to have immediate access to data stuff.

    I use Llama for other automation stuff. I have it set to lower the ringer volume and notification volume when at work, and increase these volumes when not at work. I also have it set to connect to wifi at home (and a couple of other places where wifi is available).

    Yes. I meant to say "when not actively using the phone". Thanks for pointing that out. I just edited my original post and made the correction.
