    Do you always keep these open in the back? or do you force quit them when you're done?

    How often do you reboot your droids to keep em running smoothly?

    Just wondering cause I'm new at this !

    I use TaskPanel to auto-kill apps. Put apps you want to stay alive on the ignore-list, the rest on killer-list, and all unused apps will die when your phone goes to sleep. :motdroidvert::motdroidvert:

    Advanced Task Killer is free and I've found it works very well.

    I've heard that task killers can be counter-productive to the OS, so I am hesitant to use then

    they just do if you kill the wrong things. if you kill just third party applications and no system related apps they will improve battery life and free ram ammount. i use AUTOMATIC TASK KILLER. its a must have app in my opinion. you start the app and see a list of all your apps. just one touch on the app you like to be killed. then after your mobile fall into standby all the selected apps will be killed automatically. very great.

    Task killers are not the problem - it's AUTOMATED task killers that slow down the OS and create issues.

    Advanced Task Killer only kills what you want and you have to tell it when to do it. It's good for when stuff doesnt close and you want to kill it.

    i think you hadnt really understand me. the automatic task killers KILLS JUST THE THINGS YOU WANT. like i wrote, you have to select the apps it kills from a list. apps you have not selected wont be killed. it do EXACTLY the same as advanced task killer. the only difference is that automatic task killer is a lot more comfortable, cause it kills the apps YOU HAVE SELECTED and NO OTHER if the mobile goes into standby or you push the power button. try it out ;). i use it for about 2 months and a friend of mine too. we dont have to care about kill stuff manually. and the system is fast, stable and haves a lot of ram.

    Automatic task killers are generally bad because they slow down the phone. It's a known fact. I rarely even use the non automatic one.

    its a wrong fact ;). like i said me and my friend are using it for about two months. dont know where your read that garbage but its wrong. we dont have any problems and its lightning fast.
    also read the uncountable good responses in the market about the app :). i think so many people cant be wrong.

    You can leave games running in the back? Since when? All mine I just exit and they close completely. Though, after Quake 3 I reboot the phone because Im sure that slows it down.

    Only game I play is ROMs via GameBoid (GBA Emulator). There is an option to close it. I close the app when I am done playing, yes.

    unix.punkx, there's no need to force quit any apps, though, right?
