    Why don't you flash the 'tiny' gapps http://mirror.kanged.net/gapps/gapps-mdpi-tiny-20100816-signed.zip

    There is an app called start up auditor that is intended to do just what you are looking for. I don't know how it works since I've never used it, but give it a shot.

    If you weren't using a taskiller you wouldn't ever know they were running. Just let the phone run the way it is supposed to, especially on CM6 which is overclocked and always keeps plenty of free ram.

    True story, Android was designed to do this, force closing apps won't do anything since the system will just have to open them again.

    so plenty of ram is 20 megs thats not acceptable i am a computer tech and i can tell a diff in my phone when i have less than 40 megs of open ram on it.. I guess its just me but i have avery hard time finding a phone that can actually keep up with me... i have a super expensive computer that pisses me off becuase i get hourglasses when i open up some programs. So i have to keep that in mind when i post things about this phone but in all honesty i am so waiting for the Intel phones to come out there going to destroy everything out there

    Dont get me wrong i just dont like having useless crap running on my phone that i dont need ya know its all about trimmin the fat which it seems is what alot of people on here do thats all but thanks for all your help....

    I get what you're saying, I used to be the same way but just decided to let it run the way it was designed to and performance has only gotten better. On a side note, if you only have like 20mb free on CM6 then something is up cuz I remember always having like 40+ free...
