SOURCE: high idle will not lower

sounds like you have something blocking the linkage or the throttle body isn't closing totally or you have a air leak.

SOURCE: sprayed too much carb cleaner in throttle body and

If it is a matter of flooding the engine with carb cleaner I'd be patient and let a day or two pass and allow the carb cleaner to evapoate off. Yes some will pass thru the rings in to the oil (change your oil soon w/filter)
Other then that I would not expect issues if this indeed the case. To help the process you may want to turn the engine with the gas pedal fully depressed; in doing so this justs off the fuel injection allowing the engine to breath a bit witout getting a spray of fuel. If the engine does start while doing this be certain to remove your foot from the gas pedal so not to over rev. the engine. Be aware even with starting fluid if the engine is trully flooded (with no mater what) she will not start.
I hope this may have helped,

I'd like to get step to step instructions on how to clean the throttle body in my 2010 Jeep Patriot

  1. Purchase "02 Sensor Safe" throttle body cleaner spray;
  2. Drive the vehicle a few miles, bringing it to full operating temperature, then park it in your driveway with the engine still running;
  3. Gain access to the throttle body, and hold your thumb on the butterfly linkage so that you can open the throttle butterfly when the engine begins to load;
  4. Begin by spraying throttle body cleaner spray on all linkages around the throttle body. If the engine begins to bog because it is aspirating throttle body cleaner, quickly open the throttle butterfly to keep the engine running.
  5. Once you have cleaned all around the throttle body, spray cleaner DIRECTLY INTO THE THROTTLE BODY, opening the throttle sufficiently to keep the engine running. It will run rough during this process but try not to let the engine stall.
  6. If the engine stalls, restart it, and continue cleaning the throttle throat until you see clean metal.
  7. Pour some fuel system cleaner into the gas tank and drive the car a little more before parking it. Try to find an excuse to accelerate hard, WIDE OPEN THROTTLE momentarily if safely possible (as when accelerating to merge into traffic on a highway).
  8. Drive back home.
  9. Done.

Auto throttle cleaned and how to initialization

If you used spray cleaner on the throttle plate or into the bore, you may have damaged the gears or motor in the throttle body. The vehicle shouldn't need any further initialization unless the throttle body has been replaced or the powertrain control module has been reprogrammed or replaced.

My 2004 saturn ion throttle sticks at between 1100 and 1500 rpms when i stop at redlights, etc. if i turn the key off and immediately back on, the idle returns to normal, (750-800 rpms), but may stick...

Actually, you will have to have the throttle body bore cleaned physically. There will be carbon build up preventing the TB plate from closing completely. Lucas gas additive used twice a year will prevent this from reoccurring. Mercury Marine gas additive is GREAT as well!

I have a 2007 saturn 4 cyl awd vue. When I come to a stop, the engine idles down and sometimes stops...

First I would check the air filter, if it's real dirty replace it. To check and see if it is the filter. remove it and drive the car. it your problem stops. replace it, you don't want to drive without it for to long. If it persists, try cleaning the throttle body and mass air flow sensor. And if it still persists, have the catalytic converters checked. All of these things are pointing to air reduction for the engine. if there isn't enough air flow threw the engine it starts with the symptoms you have now and gets progressively worse.
