    Some of the reviews I have read talk about a Power Control widget which will allow you to set things like backlight, gps on/off, wifi on/off, etc to save battery power, but I can't seem to find it. I do see one that says Settings. Is that it or I am just a dunce?

    I found it. From the Home screen, hit the Menu "button", then hit Add, then Widgets. Not as cool as I thought it would be though.

    Correct its Menu > Add > Widgets > Power Control

    I use it all the time.

    It saves 3-4 button clicks for most settings.

    Trust me -- the more you use it the more you learn to like it.

    Ahh, figured it out. You click and drag it to the slider bar at the bottom which becomes a trash can while u are dragging stuff around.

    Even the little fold up "Getting Started" that comes with the phone recommends using one.

    This looks like it or an equivalent is going to be a MUST have on this bad boy if you like to have all the bells and whistles ( gps etc ) running which is the point of having a bad ass phone like the droid. :hail:

    I had mine fully charged and put it on my night stand for bed, got up this morning and it was down to 15%...:icon_eek: So gonna need to shut down the goodies overnight at least.
