    In the Play Store, you can hit the Menu button, then "My Apps", and it will bring up a list of your installed (downloaded) apps. If you tap one of the apps, it will open and there is a box called "Allow automatic updating" ... if the box is checked it's allowed, just uncheck it. :)

    I have deleted a couple unused apps either they were causing the drain I'm not sure yet, but I've also disabled auto updating apps. Ever since this recent action it is not staying awake and going through battery like it has been (which is nice) but still does not yet explain how all settings have been the same across the board until ics arrived.

    When I updated to ics, I had to switch auto updates off in the market. Not sure why it changed, but it did. Perhaps you had it turned off in gingerbread, and it reset it self when upgraded to ics...

    No I'm quite sure that I've had it set to auto update for gb as will as other phones from the past and never had this issue. Unless ics is making more diligent effort to complete tasks.

    It could be that since ics was a major overhaul, the market defaulted to auto update, or if you select auto update for one app, often times the market would suggest auto update for all, and if you're in the middle of typing, you can sometimes tap on the pop up and not even realize it.

    It may not be the case, but I've seen it happen.. :)

    ICS has the auto update and add shortcut to home screen options checked by default in the play store. Every ICS rom I've been on including leaks, custom and OTA has had that. Even with ICS roms on my Droid X

    This is 100% correct. Every time I have ever done an fdr, whether on GB or ICS, the playstore re-installs with these two set as defaults. Usually my reminder to go back and undo playstore's defaults is because I start seeing the icons on my homescreen that I didn't manually put there. The reason, on GB and ICS, that I have always set it to not auto update is because I want to be able to know exactly what the update is and what changes were made to the app before I agree to it and I don't want my phone working in the background without my knowledge.

    Still nothing explains the battery drain after ics was installed. I had auto update set on GB and did not see this kind of battery drain.

    I'm pretty sure Verizon and Motorola have acknowledged some inefficiencies with ICS and battery life. My understanding is that an OTA this month is supposed to address some of those issues.

    Can we just skip the patch and go straight to Jelly Bean? Lol my XOOM has it and soooo many of the features would be better on a phone...

    They were going to come out with a patch to address some of the issues. there are a lot of us that have it already. Its the 215 leak. but the 215 leak has been out for a while now and yet no update yet. I am thinking there going to skip the patch and just go strait to jelly bean since they already said it was going to come out for the razr and razr maxx.
