Does ICS have this functionality built in? I thought I read somewhere it did. If so, what can you press to get a screen capture?

My usual app of choice "Shoot Me" doesn't yet seem ICS/GN compatible. It just produces a black screen! :blink:

Any other suggestions please?

Is there some magic technique to this, because no matter how I press volume down and power at the same time, nothing seems to happen and i'm not getting any files in that directory. :blink:

I must be doing something wrong!!!?!?!
