  1. Sorry, I don't disagree, but I also don't understand the context of your response.
  2. Easy. Use engine thermal anti-ice (TAI) when ever in icing conditions or icing conditions are anticipated (in other words, if you are about to enter icing conditions, put the engine TAI on before getting into it. As for wing anti-ice. Generally it is used as a de-ice tool, i.e. only used when icing is actually present on the airframe. In real life we take cues from ice formation on the wiper nut or window edges (amongst other things). If ice collects in those places then it will start to accumulate on the wings.... ...however, in FSX these cues are not present. But I can tell you that in real life, I have only used wing anti-ice twice in 5 years of flying around the world. So it isn't common. On the ground, as before, engine anti-ice is to be used when ever in icing conditions. Wing anti-ice is to be used also as an anti-ice tool (prevent the formation of ice occurring). In reality this would only be in icing conditions and when de-ice/anti-ice fluid has not been used (i.e. practically hardly ever). If you do use it on the ground it will auto-shutoff when you apply T/O power and auto switch off when you lift off. Read the FCOM1, Supplementary Procedures, Adverse Weather section for more precise and detailed info.
