    Welcome to the forums!!

    Cannot find that particular TK in the market...but you do not necessarily need one as the Android OS will manage tasks / processes on its own...

    As smalltowngirl said, Task Killers are not needed, they only drain battery and slow performance

    So not having a task killer is ok? What about the programs running in the background on the phone? Does the Droid X shut them down itself?

    +1 to everyone. TKs need to be TKO'd.

    Yes, it does. Having something in memory takes as much juice as un-filled RAM, so there's no battery penalty. Having a TK actually bogs your system down some and uses a lot of juice because it keeps ramping the CPU up and the apps usually start up again anyway. Read the link Abe pointed at.
