    First: I'm a corporate rep for Verizon. 90% of my 88,000 coworkers are idiots! DEF don't know more about Android than Google. Hell, you probably know more than they do.
    Second: hit the "Kill Selected Apps" button, wait a few minutes, and open the app up again. Guess what...theeeeeeey'rrrrrrreeee baaaaaaack! :)
    Why? Because that's how Android operates...on its own. I have MUCH better battery life, less freezes, and cooler temps since UNINSTALLING ATK! They probably recommended an "anti-virus" app too, right?

    I don't know. I usually tune them out because they tell me stuff that I already know. And yes, I know how the droid works. And I know it works on its own. That's why the app on my phone has an "ignore list" so I put all these apparently like my fedex app and facebook app on the ignore list so they don't try to running again.

    I may be wrong, but that isn't what the ignore list does. The ignore list ignores the open apps you select instead of trying to close them every 5 minutes that you have to use ATK to keep the apps closed. It doesn't ignore them so they don't turn back on.

    The ignore list in an app killer is the apps that it will ignore killing...you can't prevent an app from starting up again in that way.

    Actually my ignore list keeps the apps from starting up until I start them up myself.

    Wrong! They just don't show up in the list when they are ignored. ATK doesn't freeze the apps (need TBP to do that). :)

    Wow, you take the Verizon "reps" advice on one post and another one you ignore him? Listen to what these guys say. I have stopped running a task killer and my phone has run smooth as ever (with a ROM) my phone was laggy occasionally before and I kept cranking up the ATK. Trust the people who MADE the OS...

    out of curiosity, for people that are rooted, do you have adfree installed? this is what happens to me at least once a day. my phone will be in standby, i wake it up and do the slide to unlock, but it doesnt slide all the way. it reboots. and when it starts back up again, i have a notification from adfree that new hosts are available. this has happened everytime. but if i just do a simple battery pull, the adfree notification does not show up when it reboots. it reboots as normal. so i have went ahead and uninstalled adfree (droid x overclock has and ad blocker built in) for now, to see if thats the cause of the issue.
