Is there a good way to stop applications from starting when your phone boots? I searched around for some threads on the topic, but everything I can find is pre-Froyo. I used to just use Advanced Task Killer to stop everything manually, but now even the ATK Froyo version doesn't seem to "really" kill all my apps. It shows the apps are stopped, but then I go into Application Manager and low and behold most of them are still running. I've heard the argument that says you don't need to manage what Apps your phone is running because it can do it by itself, and I really can't say I agree with that. Android might well be able to manage it's own resources, but that doesn't mean you should be running programs you don't need constantly. Any such device is going to see better performance when it's CPU is NOT totally tanked, not to mention battery life. The Application Manager doesn't tell you how much CPU you are using, and that's what is important. Using memory doesn't really kill your battery, but running the CPU will. Anyways, has anyone found a good, free way to do this? Going into Application Manager and ending them 1 by 1 is not a good solution at all. Thanks.
