    Is there some app which combines the Power Control widget and the Settings widgets? I don't want to clutter up a screen with on/off buttons when one icon would open up a program that allows me to do them all.

    I have come across Toggle Settings and wondered if there was anything better.

    What does everyone else use?

    I use the power button on the top of the phone...[​IMG]I'm here all week....[​IMG][​IMG]

    So sorry couldn't help myself and no I don't think there is a better/efficient alternative.

    So if you want to turn your wifi off you turn the phone off??????????? Doesn't make sense.

    I use a combination of switchpro widget and some folder organizer shortcuts to access everything I need quickly

    No if you long press the power button it gives you a number of options (including turning the phone off).

    Personally I use EasySwitch as it has a widget with 10 buttons which only takes up the space of 3 icons.

    Oh I'm being read so out of context turning the phone off to turn everything off to save battery was a *joke* My follow up at the bottom stated imho that other than the combination already mentioned I can't think of a better/more efficient alternative. No matter what else you use it still involves the same amount of user input. However snowmobile's suggestion looks promising. NVM

    Stublake I wasn't talking about power saving, hence I misunderstood you. Sorry for that.

    Thanks for all the comments so far. I will look into them.

    I use Tasker. You can create your own widgets or automatically switch things on/off based on gestures, time, location, app started, events, etc, etc, etc...
    Bit of a learning curve, but easily the most powerful app I've used.

    +1.. Better than switchpro IMO, because you can cram 6-7 controls into a 2x1 area.. Better for conserving screen real estate.
