    Stupid noob question - closing apps

    I've got Advanced task killer, but I see some apps start back up and, I assume, running in the background using up resources... How to you close an app and make sure it doesn't run unless you actually open it? Am I not clicking the right buttons or something?

    examples:

    TIKL
    Verizon
    Maps - I have gps and wifi shut off..
    gallery

    I can kill these apps with ATK but they pop up again.. I have them set to NOT auto-update..

    Then these services that show as running are not using any resources?

    Here is some good reading on the subject.

    If you apply a rom or theme - backup first!
    If you don't know how to backup...Stop until you do.
    hint: I name my backups like this: sg6.0_20100428 or ss4.2_20100626 to easily find them later. rom and date.

    Christim.. thanks so much.. that was a much better and informative answer than just "Droid doesn't need that"... I'm not much in the blind-faith dept... it's great when someone actually gives ya some data...

    I will cancel the auto-kill on ATK and just use it for stuck programs..
