    Mine was running about the same, until i switched my screen brightness to 25-30% now it will run less that 50% overnight, 50-60 under low use conditions, and maybe into the low 70's when I'm using it a lot. Ics did get a resolution boost i believe, so that leads to the screen using a lot more than GB

    Yeah I normally use auto brightness but last night I had it on 20% which is what I am going to try for a few days to see if it helps.

    Also if one applies some logic, then if other junk is not eating up the battery, the amount of time for the screen goes up in percentage not down.

    Yes, exactly! Screen uses a bit more, other processes use less, equals screen using a high percentage. Overall i find the battery use the same (or extremely close) as gingerbread.

    Screen could even use less and other things use a lot less! So screen percent goes up!

    I set my display brightness to 20% this morning and am happy to report that it is running between 50% and 60% now instead of the high 70's.

    Did you notice any change in battery when you set the brightness?

    I haven't noticed any change yet, today was the first full day with it set to 20% and I was at work with no usage except checking missed calls. Give me a few days and I can report better on your question.

    Where did the MOTOPRINT go?!

    I can not find the MOTOPRINT App in the program listing. I went to the Play store, Uninstalled, and then was given an option to "Upgrade". Installed the update (Showed progress bars), but it still does not showup in the App or Widget list. This was a useful app and I hope ICS did not eliminate it. Can anyone else with ICS confirm they still have it?

    I still have it, but I have it disabled because it isn't something I use. I'm on the .215 leak.
