    Just wondering if I set it to kill the clock, does that mean that my alarm won't go off?

    Yes. When I got task killer It did just that, and even though the icon remained on the notification bar, the alarm never went off. My iTouch's last duty was to act as backup in case that happened :)

    It will if it's checked. Just uncheck what apps you don't want to kill, and they'll stay on.

    put the alarm on the ignore list and it will never come up in the kill list again. i too use my droid as an alarm clock and it would be trouble if it didn't work for some reason. i threw it on the ignore list along with the task manager program itself and the anti virus program i have.

    you do not need a task killer app!
    the android os is meant to support the running of background apps and killing them actually slows the phone down, especially when killing native apps such as messenger or gmail.
    believe me i used it when i first started messing around with the droid and heard this claim, i took a look in the android api and one of my buddies showed me why you dont need to kill em...

    You can say that until your are blue in the face and I will not believe it. I can tell when my phone starts running slow and I immediately check to see how many apps I have running. Shutting down some ALWAYS helps and puts the phone back to where I am used to it being speed wise.

    I should have known. This happened to me a couple times and I couldn't figure out why it happened. Duh.

    To my Droid: Sorry, I take back all of the bad things I said to you concerning this.

    No ill effects on battery life here... I don't use a Task Killer. Android's OS manages it's applications very well, both memory wise and battery wise.

    this happened to me yesterday... I had my alarm clock set, but I forgot to "uncheck" the alarm box on my ATK and it killed my alarm...fortunately, I had a good inner sense of time at that moment and still managed to complete my task on time even without the alarm actually going off...

    I dont use any task killers and have very few apps installed but find my alarm clock has been wanting to snooze itself at times, have it set for 7:30 M-F and couple times it hasnt gone off until 7:31 or 7:32, this morning it didnt even go off until my wife called me at 7:37 which it then decided to ring with the phone. :mad:
