    I want them closed, ended, non running, fineto, period! After having my DX for awhile now i'm noticing that Android OS seems to love leaving apps running in the background eating up what precious RAM I have left. Its aggrevating that I have to use system panel lite to end programs when I just want to exit it out of them and be done with it and not slowing down my phone.

    What do I need to do exactly permanetly close:

    1. Stock Browser
    2. Droid forum app *even if I back out, it still continues to run*
    3. Gallery
    4. Txt messenger
    5. Market

    Why does this thing insist on keeping crap sitting in RAM? Windows does a better job then this, cmon Google.....

    If you are killing tasks you are just wasting resources and battery as the O/S does an excellent job at managing the processes within the system - these apps are not actually running, they are "frozen" waiting for you to access them

    There is a thread/video around here somewhere that goes into detail about how the Android O/S works - and it is far diffeent than any windows system -

    So you're saying you have ran out of RAM? Seeing Low RAM messages? What exactly is your supporting argument?

    Don't worry about what's running in the background. As tp76 said, the OS handles it.

    Looks like several of us feel the same about task killers.
