    Alternative is nothing. Android manages memory without it. ATK will shut down programs that are not using any battery and then when you re-open them you will use battery.

    Therefore ATK uses more battery than without.

    ATK uses battery
    The programs it closes use battery when you re-open them.

    Task killer doesn't run in memory for me. What you guys fail to mention is its usefulness when it comes to closing apps that are frozen, or are programmed in a way that will not free up memory when exited. Pandora can be a prime example for this one. If I pick up wifi at a mcdonalds while its playing...it will freeze and lock up. You can exit it all day, but it will not close.

    You guys bring valid points to the table, but I think you missed the important one.

    So how about we focus on the topic, lol

    Go to setting applications manage applications select the running tab and force close. Does the same thing just better.

    Sadly it doesn't, plus it takes days for it to calculate all the apps. In the case of Pandora, the App manager itself has frozen on it before as well, and I'm not going through all those keystrokes in my truck, when I actually use pandora. ATK= two buttons and problem solved for me.

    There are multiple other task killers that DONT run automatically that can take t he place of ATK.

    I suggest you download one and try it out. It should save you a ton of battery which is why you started this thread in the first place.
