Tip: how to control attached device

Services tab (Ctrl+5) of the IDE contains one well hidden feature of NBAndroid plugin. There is a node showing all devices known to IDE. In addition to that you can also see processes running on these devices.

There are also a few actions available for devices and processes. Properties tab (Ctrl+Shift+7) shows various properties of both and gives you a chance to modify some aspects of the device state: voice and data network and their parameters. Processes offer possibility to start debugging as mentioned in post about debugging or simple to kill some tasks (be careful). You can also get snapshot from a device.
