    I use Go Launcher EX and it shows what's running, and apparently Slacker Radio and Verizon "Apps" (neither of which I use) are running in the background. I have them on auto-kill which does nothing. My question is, do you use a task killer?

    Same with "Smart Actions" I don't use that. And why is Google Maps constantly running, haven't touched it in a week?

    I don't recommend using a third party app killer. Use the stock task manager, it keeps your device running as it should.

    I also have those two apps running at times.. it doesn't hurt anything.

    Also apps like Google books and other bloatware apps run from time to time.

    The only way to fully stop them is to root, and freeze them.

    Or yell at them, and threaten them.. but neither of these has done anything for me... ymmv :)

    ICS will allow you to freeze any app natively within the OS itself without the need for root or a separate app. Definitely one of the best ICS features in my book.

    I actually use juice defended instead of smart actions or the stock manager. I purchased for my og droid because rommed and rooted that phone could not handle what I wanted to put it through and the battery was horrible. I have had very little success with smart actions or the stock TM(and I did try for a couple months before deciding to install JD).

    In JD you can disable any app and unlike the stock TM, the app doesn't decide 2 secs later to start running again. Keep in mind when disabling apps that some are meant to run and are needed to run so if you disable the wrong ones, it will be a tug of war for them to want to keep running and will use more battery and resources fighting this tug of war.

    I use JD Ultimate. It helps, but I text with Google Voice, so its also a pain.

    Juice Defender Ultimate. Try the free version first. I don't even remember what the paid version costs because I got it so long ago and, of course, play store only shows that I have it installed (or shows purchased when uninstalled).
