    Why did I remove the advanced task killer from my droid x and my phone automatically stoped acting up? When I had atk installed my phone would run slow, shut down by itself and act real glitchy. No more atk!

    I think he was giving the up to removing it not wondering why he did. Saying his phone runs better now since removing it.

    I understand

    I have all of the posts on why to get rid of task killers, but no one has addressed leaving it installed in the background. Meaning, I used ATK to kill apps that I know don't shut down properly when I exit, don't have a real "exit," and ultimately kill my battery (eg: connect four (a very stimulating adult game)).
    I have autokiller turned off, and I only kill apps occasionally (once every other day).
    The question: is having ATK installed bad or is it just using ATK or autokiller the bad thing?
    I suppose I could figure out the apps that give me a hard time and close the app the old fashioned way, but this is a lot easier.....just curious.

    Having it installed is not the bad thing, using it is.... Droid OS is made to close apps, even connect 4, when it becomes the least used of all that you opened. I have personally tested the method with and without the ATK, and my phone has the same amount of battery life without the ATK and runs smoother. Several OS developers state that killing apps like that in this type of OS is bad. Download OS Manager from Market and look at what is running and what is ACTUALLY using CPU usages (which is what drains battery). The whole thing "its running in the background so its running down my battery" is simply a myth, if you want PM and I can explain more in detail.
