    I have not used it but someone mentioned 2x Battery which is free and sounds similar to SA.

    I believe JuiceDefender is similar to smart actions... I've never had a real need for it myself, but I've heard good things about it. =)

    There's a setting in juice defender to fix that.

    The setting just toggles your data off/on for you if after a long time your data hasn't come back.

    IMO juice defender is worth it. You will get mixed reviews though. It really extends my battery life. Ultimate does some cool things too.

    What I found with JD ultimate was it takes wifi a while to connect (15-20 seconds ) when I wake my phone vs putting the phone on "never" in the phones wifi advanced settings taking a second or 2 . Since I'm on wifi 99% of the time that makes a big difference to me.
    If I am on Verizon data most of the day and/or have a very weak signal, Juice Defender is a must have app for me on those days.

    Yes

    You can keep wifi enabled (read it doesn't toggle off and back on) in the settings

    That defeats the purpose. "Never" in phone wifi settings turns wifi off while the phone sleeps, saving battery. I tried the leave on with JD and it ended up saving no battery.

    There are few in the market, I used to be obsessed with finding an alternative to Motorola smart actions.

    After a while I realized its just as easy to just manually turn off the data radios... That's what eats up the most power (when in sleep mode).

    I used to use tasker on my Droid 2 for some different power saving stuff, haven't messed with it for a while though.

    I once tried battery defender. it is free.

    currently I am using the extended battery in WiFi almost all the time. Seems to last the whole day.

    Wifi mostly is more efficient than 3g or less battery than 4g. You need a steady solid connection though.

    Closest I have found to smart actions is "Profile Scheduler+".
