    Get yourself an app such as TasKiller or Advanced Task Manager from the market...plenty to choose from for free or paid.

    Go with ESTask Manager. You can create an ignore list (list of apps that it won't kill), then you can just click the widget that comes with the apps and it will kill everything that isn't in the ignore list.

    Best task manager I've seen so far. There is also an option to kill single tasks as well.

    @OP: Technically, you don't need a task killer based on how the Android OS is designed. Unless it's a rouge app, a task killer to end the app is not necessary. If you don't use an app, it goes into idle mode (uses 0% of CPU%) and waits until you need it again. If memory is low and the phone sees you haven't used that app for a long extended period, it will end the task to open up memory for other tasks.

    Same here, until I read OTD (ofthedamned)'s posts on ATK and read up on it...I learnt that I don't need it for my phone. :)

    I use Quick Settings (free from the market) to turn different things on and off as I need them.

    I also use Task Panel lite (with it's AutoKill widget) to kill off processes. I know that dormant apps don't use processing power, but I figure that having them in memory MUST drain some power, so there's no harm in killing the ones I don't want.

    By doing things this way I've gone form losing around 30% power overnight to losing less than 5%. Last night my battery was at 52% at 1am, and today at nearly 6pm I've got 37%. Today I've received calls and texts, and received emails and used the Market on wireless. And I have Bluetooth on when I'm in my car (about one hour per day).

    On that basis, I'm pretty happy with the battery. However, if I leave 3G on, allow auto-updates for Google Sync (contacts and calendar), and let Twitter and facebook update regularly in Timescape, my battery dies MUCH quicker.
