    Not to mention that, just because you see an app in ATK's screen, it doesn't mean its using any resources. Want proof? Open your settings and go to manage applications and click running at the top. Alot of what you'll see will read "0.00MB".

    I dunno. I installed automatic task killer and my droid x battery life doubled. Explain that...

    When I look at my battery manager things like skype are always taking up a certain % of battery even when I didn't use them all day. Now that I use automatic task killer they don't.

    Certain apps will consume power when inactive that's when task killer is useful. But otherwise apps that are in memory are usually useful.

    Yeah I am pretty new to droid, but will uinstall automatic task killer and give it a try. It seemed like my battery life was a lot better though. So if skype is running in the background is that bad for battery? I'm not even logged in or anything, but it seems to never go away.

    Its most likely just there but not necessarily doing anything. ATK just shows what's open, the Linux system in Android manages them. Always use the back key to get out of applications and not the home key, that helps.

    ah, yeah I was using home key a lot. Sometimes I have to hit the back key so many times I get lazy.

    I wonder how do you calculate this? Doubling life from a task managing app seems an extreme exaggeration. How many days and what methods did you use to measure this? And did your kid install a bunch of bloatware before you installed the task manager?

    I dunno, for being a first time smartphone and Droid X user, my phone feels bloated and slow without the task killer, despite what you say. I'll play with the phone more but im not saying yay or nay to either idea.
