The version 1.5 manager would allow for just the tasks to be killed (both versions have this setting) but version 2.1 opens it regardless if I set it to "kill tasks only" Am I missing something? Also the old Task Manager showed how much available memory you had, and when pressed told you how much you cleared and how much was now available. (Or did I have something from the market installed?...and if so, why can't I find it anymore?) Seems like the market doesn't have as many apps in it anymore, will this change with time? Bob.
