    It's not really detrimental to have, it's just unnecessary. Android will manage your memory for you, there is really no reason to manually mange it yourself. Like I said it could help in singling out a problem app by killing processes or apps and determining whether they are causing problems. Aside from that, just let android do what it was designed to do. I have never had a task manager and my droid is blazing fast, with tons of widgets, music playing, home replacement, and whatever else.

    I wouldnt un-install ATK, I have it and it hasn't slowed my phone at all as I have done tests with and without it. In fact when my phone starts to lag I open ATK and kill everything and it speeds up, imagine that? I'm not OCD about it but there have been times I literally needed it.

    ATK has not slowed my phone down one bit. Yeah android does manage memory for you but what if you do want to just close everything at once so you can at least operate your phone with good memory available. Also sometimes for example an app that uses gps, when I'm done with it, it may continue to use the gps. Instead of waiting for android to kill the app an waste battery from using gps, I can just kill in right away with ATK.

    I've found this lag at times with the 2.1 launcher as well, but figure it's just because I'm running it on 2.0.1.

    But I thought the more running programs you have the more they eat your battery? B/c when you open "Battery use" all the idle apps that haven't been killed are listed with their percentage of battery that they are using.....??

    Running yes, installed no. The os alreadey takes care of memory management. Its not necessary to have a task killer.

    Mine too. I thought it was just getting old, but I guess it's all the little programs (apps and widgets) we load it up with.

    Gotta put a light load on it, otherwise it'll knda drag through life.
