    I still have it. I think they got rid of the icon / widget. Go to settings & scroll down to the "system" section. You should see a choice for printer settings. That's the motoprint

    Weird I don't see a printer settings

    Ota don't think I disabled... let me check

    Edit:
    Looking under apps/ all scrolling to bottom I do see that I disabled motoprint...

    You may double check it's listed under apps.

    From the Motorola site: With 3.x or higher you can only print directly from the contextual menu of the file you would like to print. You cannot print from MOTOPRINT.

    What they don't tell you is how to get the contextual menu. You find the file, press and hold it til the contextual menu pops up. Print is one of the options, and then you select a printer you have configured through MOTOPRINT in the Settings/Printer Settings. Works well once you figure it out.

    Sat through an iPAD Training session with my wife last night, and in typical Apple fashion, they only support their "Air Print". Motoprint is a nice built in feature! Glad it was not lost, just operates differently.

    Thanks to you all for giving me some clues!

    So I just found out my phone is being held awake for several hours when I'm not doing anything. Even at night I'll shut everything down (background sync, data, gps, wifi, Bluetooth) but will wake up to a seemingly used up battery even though nothing should have been running. I have done the battery retraining several times properly still finding my RAZR will just barely make over nine hours on a full charge. Do phone processes keep the phone itself awake ever since ics came to being? This is a cumbersome flaw I've run into going to find some insight.

    There is something that is working in the background that should not be. Install a battery app where you can look to see what apps or processes might be running when it should be "sleeping." GSam battery monitor and Battery Monitor Widget by 3c both can give helpful information in this area.

    GSam is exactly where I'm getting my information from. It says the phone, Android system and kernel ate all keeping the phone awake. Just by looking at the phones stock battery monitor it is showing the phone is awake for quite done time without ever having the screen on. i do not believe i added anything that would cause the basic running systems to be keeping the phone awake.

    Do you have Google play set to auto update apps? If so, disable it. It can keep your phone awake and kill battery.

    Yes i do. I can try that and see what happens although I've had that always set to auto update before ics as well as other phones before it i never had any severe battery drain.

    Swis, your battery life is really not too bad. By your screen shot, there is definitely something running in the background but it could just be a normal process. I admit, my activity is only if I have the screen on and/or wifi on... otherwise no activity. But I have backgrounds sync disabled, all email set to manually pull and manually sync with no notification alerts except for text and calls. Facebook can also be a culprit, which I have that set the same (all manual with no notifications). And it could also be like rjeatkrconley, said... if playstore is auto updating your apps then it would be very difficult to know when that actually happens when it happens in the background.
