    Hey guys I just got the TaskPanel app and it allows me to kill background running apps/services easily.

    My question is how can I get these apps/services to just stop launching themselves. I'm not using them at all and I really am just looking for a way to get them to stop launching and running.

    They include services like:
    google voice
    alarm clock
    calendar
    corporate calendar

    Thanks for any help!

    I could be wrong, but I'm pretty sure these features are built into the Android OS and you can't stop them. I know when I tried to use Quick Uninstaller to delete the Corporate Calendar it advised me not to cause it's so tightly integrated with the OS itself.

    Is this a joke? I'm not even using anything in my calendar and not even using Google talk, let alone need any Google talk storage.

    Noone is concerned about apps just taking up 40k of 256 memory just for no reason?????

    of 256mb...or taking up 0.04mb...

    I use Advanced Task Killer to kill unnecessary apps every once in a while.

    Yea I have never had autosync on.

    I mean the excuses are all good about how they don't take up much memory. But I'd really like control over my device and these processes (like google talk storage) do use the cpu at one time or another and for no reason at all except that they are running in hopes that I might use that app soon.

    Well I am not going to, and won't probably ever so I really don't need it launching itself everytime I close it and using my my cpu bandwidth.


    So lets move past the excuses and work towards a solution I think would be our best bet.
