The main question now, is how would I know which process (task) to turn off when I need to - in an Android environment... Looks like I'll be learning the hard way... LOL!
I am telling you, you will really never need it. You have to change your WinMo mentality. If you open a task killer on an Android phone you will see a lot of programs and processes running just like you would on WinMo however they aren't running... They are hibernating so to speak until an app needs them. If memory gets too low Android automatically closes apps that may be running. It is leaps and bounds over WinMo memory management
