    Question Task killer not working right on 2.2

    Just rooted to the new cyanogen mod last night, im running 2.2. For whatever reason no matter which task killer i use it will not completely kill the apps like it did on the 2.1. For example, espn, or facebook, when i kill it and reopen it, its at the same spot in the app before i killed it, before it would completely close out of the app. Whats even more annoying is i can not kill my music player, or pandora. Anyone else seeing this?

    dont mean to answer with something you will likely not want to hear....BUT

    get rid of the task killer!
    the Android system doesnt need it, it has a built in ability to allocate processes and kill if necessary all on its own!
    the OS was designed to multi-task, this is why its so much better than the i-phone

    the one thing people dont think about is that task killer you want to run is running in the back ground, and taking up system resources, including your battery.

    i had one from day 1, read the tech background of the OS in this forum and uninstalled it several months ago. i have never had an issue and will never use a task killer app again.

    ^ what he said

    its been proven that letting the system do its own thing saves more battery then using a task killer to close everything. The only need for a task killer is to close an app acting funky. But then again, android has a built in task manager in the settings for that

    I don't understand how can a task killer be such a power hog?
    When I check the battery use it shows that the task killer uses only 2% while the
    display uses 60%. If you don't use a task killer how do you close all those app's running
    in the background? Plus my battery use is great, 20 hours until shutdown with heavy use,
    phone calls, constant email downloads, rss feeds, and GPS on, etc.

    If you use a task killer right, it can be useful.

    Having a task killer around isn't a horrible thing for a runaway app or something, just don't have it set on auto run, just make it a shortcut, close it when you're finished.
