Why do apps continue to run after I "kill" them?

    I just went into Task Manager and "killed" a bunch of things. I then clicked Home, then went back into task manager about five seconds later, and several things are back. Calendar, corporate calendar, Settings, Voice Search...

    I thought once I killed something it would stay inactive until I called it up again. It's weird that it's constantly running stuff that I'm not bringing up. I thought once you killed a task, it would go away.

    that's how android works.

    it runs in the background so you don't have any waiting time next time. the beauty of it is that it doesn't bog down the phone either, since apps running in the background pretty much use no ram.

    i use a taskkiller too but that's only to kill apps like games and the browser, anything else i leave alone.
