    TasKiller = battery killer?

    Ok, maybe exagerated a little but this something I've noticed. When used advanced task killer it doesn't show that it is using my battery but when I got TasKiller it shows up under my battery use! Granted it only uses 4% but still it seems that it didn't have the same effect with Advanced task killer. Has anyone else experienced the same thing or have any input?

    Do you leave it running like in the task bar. Because when I kill my tasks I kill the task killer too.

    I do have it in the taskbar. how do you continue killing tasks if you kill the task killer? Do you just boot it back up again?

    I was just wondering why Advanced task killer wont show up on battery use but Taskiller does

    You can always just load TK and kill task that way. That's the way I do it. I don't keep it running in my taskbar, though you can, I'm not sure if it will kill your battery or not. Don't forget to task kill Task Killer also if you take my approch.

    You're not realizing that those programs you are closing aren't using any resources. They're sitting in memory and the OS will clean them up as needed. The task killer is defeating the purpose of cleaning things up because it uses resources AND when it shuts down stuff your droid often just opens it up again, which uses resources. Not to mention the problems the things cause. Don't use it!

    Some people prefer it, does it really bother you that some people want a task killer? I use it for when I'm using an app that has sound and when I close it I still hear sound, so I kill it.

    I don't kill anything that just restarts itself ( calendar, messaging, etc.) I use it to kill Maps, browser, games, thigns taht are just for fun to entertain me with when I'm bored.

    How do you go about killing the task killer? do you just go to settings and do it?
