    LOL to true. It seems that you really really like task killing or you hate it. I never kill tasks

    While I wouldn't run any 'auto-kill' function.... the answer to your question however is YES you can ignore apps.

    I would
    And it works perfectly all of the time.

    and how do you go about disabling the autoruns of some of the apps you don't need to autorun?

    I honestly don't know.

    When I first used "task killers" I would always see
    (no matter what I did)

    -Amazon mp3
    -Corporate calendar
    -Voice Dialer and a bunch of other apps just sitting there...

    Now I went from BB v0.4 to LFY 1.4 (about to flash to 1.5) and
    I don't have those issues anymore.

    However I will say that for the most part you can take out apps
    that the system doesn't actually need to run inside of system/app.

    Right now for example I just disconnected from using my phone
    to call someone via google voice....

    ScreenShotService
    NoLockService
    SETCPU
    FancyWidget
    Gtalk
    TempMonitor
    GenierRefreshService (I hate this one)
    Multi-Touch Keyboard
    Facebook (just popped in, then stopped)

    Are the only things running right now.

    The AutoKiller as I said previously fine tunes what get's killed
    depending on the priority Android OS set it in the first place.

    I use the Aggressive setting and never have an issue.
    When I didn't use AutoKiller (and keep in mind I use many apps
    services at once constantly) my memory would dip to about 30MB and lower....My phone would slow to a crawl.

    AutoKiller just stops the BS and keeps the most important services
    running and kills the ones that linger and don't need to be there.

    Simple as that.

    I should add that I don't get anything for endorsing the product
    It simply works and allows my phone to operate at its maximum
    efficiency. As it has been said Android OS does a good job on its own...

    AutoKiller simply refines the management process!

    Reasons not to autokill tasks:
    -takes CPU/battery to have an autokiller run in the background
    -takes CPU/battery if the OS has to restart apps
    -causes problems like not getting email notifications

    Android manages task killing on it's own and doesn't need help. If an app/widget is acting up, uninstall it and contact the dev.

    So I'm assuming this doesn't apply to the native music player app, right? Because even when I press the back button, which usually closes other apps it still plays in the background(I can kinda understand that, people want to multi-task and listen to music) but generally I just press the home button to leave an app but let in run in the background.
    Other things I've noticed is that sometimes apps I downloaded and haven't used will be shown in the menu where you can 'manage apps, and uninstall and what not' but they won't be actually shown running. Is that menu just showing things that are cached are whatever?? Except fro drocap2 which will be shown in the main running service menu(the separate one, I think you guys know what I'm talking about, theres a tab that shows running programs but I think there's one in the 'about phone section' cant remember exactly)
    more mysteriously, I always have to close mabilo wallpaper app and the flikie wallpaper app. mabilo has some rotation thing which I have no idea what it does, and i disabled it but still runs at start-up.
    Even more bizarre there are occasions where flikie might say 20% battery use or something like that. CAN SOMEBODY EXPLAIN ALL OF THIS????
