    Well, I have been trying this out for a week now. The battery does actually last much longer since I removed the task killer. It's nice not having to check the TK each time I use something also. I did DL a battery meter that shows percentage of battery left so I could track it. It's a beer glass that empty's out as the battery goes down. Placed the small widget on my DT.

    Thanks for the heads up!

    Now if I can just get this thing to stop yelling "DROID" at 6am when I turn my phone on each morning my wife will love it!

    When I went there, the box is unchecked. Should I check it?

    interesting, I was sure that the droid announcement at bootup was the sd card mount notification.

    i'd check it. reboot. if it makes the noise, uncheck, reboot...

    oh jeeze...another task killer thread

    hey all. so i know we revisit this topic from time to time, and i think that time has come again.

    have we come up with any new info on the "use task killer vs don't use task killer" debate? my friend picked up a new droid incredible just this friday and two of the best buy mobile employees pushed the advanced task killer download on him.

    i know there's that video straight from google out there outlining how the android system works, and it suggests a task killer is not needed...but so many people insist they get better performance when they use one.

    ugh...open platforms.

    Try one out for a week, and then without one for a week. That's what I did, and I'll never use one again.

    Threads merged. There is no need to open a topic on this any longer since we have one in the sticky's in the Droid Applications.
