    There is some apps that when they are in standby are still being used. You can use Titanium backup and freeze app which makes it not run which requires root. Or you can remove bloatware.

    Advanced task killer froyo

    Advanced task killer froyo works good and does not seem to have any effect on my battery. I tried my droid x with out it and my phone needed multiple battery pulls a day to get everything working the way it should. I only kill apps that seem to have problems like facebook and the camera. Until the droid x can handle memory better ill stick with my task killer.

    There is no reason to keep beating this dead horse.

    Lol
    I did test with it and with out and the results don't lie. Without task killer I was rebooting my phone 2-3 times a day because my phone would be so slow or not respond. With task killer I only reboot 1-2 every two days. Works for me and that is all that matters.

    Do a test with it and without. It might have to do with which task killer u have and what phone.

    While I'm against task killers, and believe any benefit is placebo.... I will give you this.....

    In my sticky thread about task killers, I mentioned that if you're going to use one at least do a real world test and determine if it's actually helping. Since you've done this, I feel no need to beat the horse you're riding on :)

    I still believe you don't need it, and it's probably another app you've got installed causing the issues... but if it ain't broke, don't fix it :)

    I used atk froyo when it first came out and after reading about how unnecessary they are here I stopped using it about 2 months ago and haven't looked back.

    So then go ahead and use it but you might want to address the issues you are having because a task killer should never be a solution

    That's true. I guess to eeach his own but 3 batt pulls a day is really excessive, you should try to address that problem.

    These guys are right... the task killer is only masking a real problem. Your device shouldn't need 3 batt pulls a day... or any for that matter.

    We've got some of the best trouble shooters in this forum you'll find.... OP if you list out what apps you've got installed I'm sure we can find out what's causing your issues....
