Tip No.2 Screen Lock..
How does my screen lock and unlock features work with the Android 4.0.4 (Ice Cream Sandwich) upgrade?
With Android 4.0.4 (Ice Cream Sandwich) your device now has several different lock options available.
Screen Lock Options
The Lock Screen on Android 4.0.4 (Ice Cream sandwich) uses two timers. The first timer is the "Sleep" timer which turns off the device display to extend battery life. You can turn the display on and swipe to unlock. The second timer called the "Automatic lock" timer turns on security features like pin, pattern, password or face unlock and protects the device from unknown users. This "Automatic lock" timer begins after the "Sleep" timer expires and you will be asked to enter personally recognizable data like pin, pattern, password or the face unlock when the display is powered on.To adjust the "Automatically lock" timer go to Settings > Security > Automatically lock > Select desired time frame.To adjust the "Sleep" setting go to Settings > Display > Sleep > Select desired time frameIf you are using facial recognition and do not want the "slide to unlock" to appear, set the "automatic lock" timer to "5sec".Power button instantly locksThere is a new option in Android 4.0.4 which will automatically lock the device when the display is on and the power button is pressed.

Tip No.8 -- What is Motorola task manager?
Note: Motorola Task Manager is no longer included with Motorola phones running Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. With Ice Cream Sandwich, users can manually end running applications in the backgroud. To do this, touch and hold to see your recent apps, listed with the most recent at the bottom. Flick left to remove an app from the list.
Task Managers let you monitor how applications use memory and processing power and identify apps that are using too many resources. Although several Task Manager applications are available on Android Market, we recommend the built-in Motorola Task Manager.
The Motorola Task Manager is optimized for your device and can distinguish between critical system applications and optional user applications. If you end a critical system app using a third-party Task Manager, you might unintentionally disable key functionality like the ability to make calls. Motorola Task Manager won't let you affect critical system applications. You can configure Motorola Task Manager to send notifications to your status bar if it detects problem apps.
Monitoring your apps
To use the Motorola Task Manager:
Touch Apps> Task Manager.
To receive a notification in your status bar about problematic apps, on the Applications tab, press the menu key> Settings > Notification.
To see how apps are using memory and processing power, look at the Applications tab.
Apps using the most processor and memory are listed at the top.
If an app is using lots of resources but you aren't using it, touch the app in the Applications list and touch End.
If an app you download from Market repeatedly appears in this list as using too many resources, you can uninstall it by touching the app in the Applications list and then touching Uninstall.
Understanding the Auto-end list
The Android operating system allows multiple applications to run at the same time; so even though an application is not in use, it could still be using memory.
To ensure that apps do not use CPU and processing power when you stop using the app, add them to the Auto-end list.
Motorola Task Manager will end the apps on this list two minutes after the screen turns off.
Do not add apps to this list if you want to use them when your screen is off. For example, if you want to listen to the radio or the Music Player, don't add them to this list; otherwise, your music will stop after the display goes to sleep to conserve battery power.
To add an app to this list, in the Applications tab in Task Manager, touch the app you want to add and select Add to auto-end list, or touch Add application from Auto-end list

Tips No. 30
Show me how to use the new version of smart action included with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.
Tired of doing the same tasks over and over again? Let Smart Actions do them for you.
Smart Actions can extend battery life and keep your phone adjusted to your changing needs, based on your location, the time of day, or other factors.
The first step is to set up some simple rules. You can create the rules from scratch, or use some preset standards. Once you’ve created your rule list, your phone automatically carries out the instructions.
For example, create a Battery Extender Rule to turn off GPS when you’re not using your phone, use a Work Rule to silence ringtones when you’re at the office, or set up a Meeting Rule to send auto-reply text responses when you’re busy.
To get started, here are a few definitions:
When you create a rule, it’s added to your rule list. Return to the rule list anytime to review, edit, disable, or delete rules.Tip: A quick way to go back to your rule list from anywhere in Smart Actions is to touch at the top left of each screen.There are three options for adding rules to your rule list:
To use samples:
To use suggested rules:Even when you don't have the app open, Smart Actions is working for you. Suggestions happen automatically—you’ll see the new suggestion notification icon in the status bar. Just flick the bar down to see the suggestion, then dismiss or accept it. (To disable notifications, open your rule list, then touch Menu > Settings > Suggestion notifications.)You can also use suggestions when creating rules within the Smart Actions app. Touch at the top of the rule list, then touch Suggestions.To create new rules:
About Manual Rules:If you haven’t set any triggers for a rule, Smart Actions creates a manual rule, which does not activate automatically. Instead, turn it on and off by touching the icon next to its name in the rule list. This is a good option if the triggers are variable or not easily defined.For example, set up a manual Driving Rule to turn off ringtones and start your favorite playlist. Then you can manually enable the rule for any drive, regardless of the location, time, or day.
You can edit any rule before saving it. To make changes later, open the rule list, and touch the name of the rule to reopen it. You should see the current triggers and actions for the rule:Choose any option to edit the rule:
You can disable or enable a rule anytime, or completely delete it from the rule list:
A rule is Active when it’s enabled and all the trigger conditions are met. Afterwards, the rule returns to Ready state, and the phone returns to its previous settings.
For example, ringer volume is initially set to 50%. A Work Rule becomes Active from 9:00 am to 6:00 pm, setting the ringer to silent/vibrate. After 6:00 pm, the ringer reverts to 50% volume, and the rule returns to the Ready state.
To check status, open the rule list. The status of each rule is shown by its icon. Touch an icon to enable/disable the rule.
Active—The rule is activated.
Ready—The rule will activate automatically when all of its triggers are met.
Disabled—The rule is disabled. Touch the icon to enable it.
To check the status of a rule’s triggers and actions, touch its name in the rule list to open it.
The status of each trigger and action is shown by a color indicator:
Blue—Trigger condition has been met, or action is active.
Gray—Trigger condition has not been met, or action is either inactive or conflicts with another active action.
Orange—Trigger or action has a problem. Touch the trigger/action to see more details.
Disabled triggers and actions are disconnected from the rule bar.
Disabled triggers do not help determine when a rule will be activated. Disabled actions are never performed.
To re-enable a trigger or action, drag it to the left to reconnect it to the rule bar.
The status bar (at the top of the touchscreen) shows Smart Actions notifications to let you know when rules are activated, and to suggest new rules for you to try.
Locations and timeframes are customizable triggers. You can add, edit, and delete settings. Smart Actions saves your preferences, so it’s easy to reuse and update the information.
For example, default timeframes include Morning, Evening, and Weekend. You can select the default Morning timeframe (5:00 am to 8:00 am) to trigger a rule. Or if you’re not an early bird, edit the hours to shift them later. For locations, add a list of favorites, such as Home, Work, and Gym. If you move, enter a new Home address to instantly update all your Home-based rules.
To use locations:
Create a new rule, or open a rule from your rule list. Touch to open the triggers menu, then touch Locations. You can add or edit locations. Touch the checkbox for the location you want to use, then touch Done:
Note: If you use a location as a trigger, Wi-Fi is required. So location triggers can’t be combined with the Wi-Fi (On/Off) or Airplane mode actions, and Wi-Fi must be turned on to use the rule.
To use timeframes:
Create a new rule, or open a rule from your rule list. Touch to open the triggers menu, then touchTimeframes. You can add or edit timeframes. Touch the checkbox for the timeframe you want to use, then touchDone:
To update your profile:
Locations and timeframes are also stored in your profile. To update your profile, open the rule list, and touch Menu > My profile > Locations or Timeframes. Add, edit, or delete places and times. Changes are reflected in your rules.
To see which of your phone settings are currently being controlled by Smart Actions, open the rule list, and touch Menu > Check status. The check status screen identifies which rule is controlling each setting. This information can be useful for troubleshooting rules that don’t perform as expected. Touch a setting to go to the active rule.
Conflicts can occur when multiple rules are active and their actions are programmed to change the same setting in different ways.
For example, you may have a Home Rule that sets your ringer to maximum volume, and a Sleep Rule that sets your ringer to silent from 10:00 pm to 6:00 am. When you’re home at 10:00 pm, both rules will be active, and will tell your device to do two different things to the ringer.
When such conflicts occur, the Smart Actions app follows the action of the most recently activated rule. In this example, the ringer will be silent, because the Sleep Rule became active after the Home Rule.
To avoid such conflicts, you can make your rules more specific so they don’t overlap. In this case, you can create a Home Evening Rule that’s active from 5:00 pm - 10:00 pm, and a Home Night Rule that’s active from 10:00 pm - 6:00 am. This ensures that the rules will not be active at the same time.
If you have rules that use Location or Wi-Fi connection triggers, the rules will not activate when Location settings or Wi-Fi power are turned off.
