(is using all of this counter productive?) OK so ,maybe what I'm running here could be considered overkill. What I'm wondering is if running juice defender (JDF) and task killer (ATK) simultaneously could be counter productive. Obviously I've made sure that (jdf) is one of the tasks being ignored within the task killer. Unfortunately my methods have been rather unscientific in terms of monitoring the impact of the programs separately or together. Additionally, since these programs are designed to maintain processing speed as well as battery power, can I expect improvement in benchmark testing? What other programs would you recommend?
