    Not looking for a debate on whether to use a task killer or not. Just want to know if the System Panel task killer still works after the 2.2 update. Doesn't seem to work the same for me.

    I'm hearing all task killers are nor needed. Because 2.2 does not cashe apps anymore. But I could be wrong.

    I use system panel pro, to monitor for reboots

    So i can run a report to see CPU usage over last 2, 4, 8 hours and see if there are any reboot spikes.

    Thats the only reason i use it

    If it's true that you just don't go with task killers anymore, I'm gonna miss my big red System Panel kill button. Can anyone verify?

    you can leave it if you really want the button. :p Try it out. Go one day of normal use of the app and then try a day without and see what you feel is right. only thing i can say because im not a DEV or anything.

    i only use mine to see what my temp is and what my CPU is running because mine is overclocked.

    I have read 2.2 pretty much manages all of that on its own.

    Personal opinion, i wouldn't use one specifically as a task killer.

    Then you're doing it wrong.

    You can still use System Panel for monitoring and killing a rogue (poorly coded) app if it causes you trouble. Mass killing apps is just not good for the system as a whole.

    I've found that it doesn't work as well in 2.2. I still use it for monitoring - never did use it for killing tasks much.
