    ... as if they were on the desktop (like application shortcuts) or should I even be concerned about those types of widgets.

    I realize I should be more concerned about the widgets that hog my resources, but I also want to know what impact the "other' types of widgets would have on my system (in and out of the folder).

    Thanks

    You can't put a widget in a folder so it won't use any ram.

    You cant put a widget in a folder. But even if you could, I dont think you need to be concerned. There are some good posts on how Android handles mem management. If you are interested, do a little research, and dont believe 90% of what you read on these forums about Android task and memory management.
