Well As D.AZ mentioned Smart Action apps can Go a Long Way Spurs as you can set Many things Say you Go to Bed at 11:00Pm after Watching the News you can Set it to Shut down like the N.Radio or Other Functions and if you get up at 7:00 or 7:30 you can program it to Wake it Up. there are Many Possibilities.

I realize this is an older post, but just curious if there has been any more factual information as to the cause of this and if there is a solution. Prior to upgrading to ICS, my phone (Razr Maxx) would have as much as 70% battery left at the end of a standard day, and I loved this phone for that reason. Now, 40% is pretty normal and have had days where I ran out of battery, which NEVER happened before. The performance drop is significant enough that I feel Verizon should update their talk time specs for this phone because they're no longer accurate. Like I say just wondering if there has been any new developments on this. I am not looking for the, "I THINK this might work" or "TRY this app killer" responses. If you don't know for sure, that's fine; no need to reply.
Many people - myself included - have been helped by wiping the Dalvik cache - there are many posts on the subject, I would start there.
Bad Battery life since the ICS Update is a known problem amongst others including stability. Both Motorola and Verizon have been working on this since the update. The latest software update to correct this problem, I have heard, is to be released sometime in August. They better hurry as it's closing in on the end of the month.
I did a FDR and wiped the cache and that seemed to solve the battery problem for me. After that my battery life was excellent.
Thanks for the feedback guys! Looking forward to this fix/patch from Verizon. If that doesn't happen, I'll try the other suggestions.
