I believe the settings for power saver is in settings>battery.

Have you done a full factory reset since you got the update? What carrier are you on? If you haven't, el presidente did a good post on the benefits of the reset. You can find it here: JB Update Issues & Factory Resets - Please Read

A Factory reset just wipes the data & cache partitions, so basically, anything you've put on there. The software will still be JellyBean and anything on the SD Card will remain untouched.

I'd also let the phone handle task/power management. Try uninstalling Advanced Task Killer (it actually does more harm than good) and Juice Defender, you might find battery life improves a little.

My phone now lasts a lot longer - still 40% left last night before I went to bed - it's usually below 20%

As above, just use the built-in power saver

Yep, just uninstall. ATK was relevant on older versions of Android, but since 2.1, it's not been needed.

Anything past probably android 2.3 doesn't really need a task killer as android got much better at handling it's own memory, so you don't need a task killer

I'm not sure about Juice Defender being bad, I just don't think it's really needed.

In saying that, it had a negative impact on my battery life, although others claim it does what it says on the tin.

There's no harm in uninstalling, see if it makes a difference.
