    After reading the thread on here about not needing a task manager, I removed mine and downloaded system panel just to keep an eye on whats always running and be able to kill any rogue apps. However, whenever I open system panel lite, its only ever the one that seems to be using the most CPU in the foreground apps, with it having the most bar full on the left. So what I'm confused about is that whether its normally just using a lot of my CPU to keep track of things, in which case I should uninstall it, or whether its a case of it showing up as using so much because I am using it at the time of checking to check the CPU usage. Any help will be greatly appreciated

    If I understand what you're saying, you don't have anything to worry about. The reason you're seeing SystemPanel as using the most CPU power is, quite simply, because it's really the only thing using a significant amount of CPU power at the time. SystemPanel lists other apps as Active and Inactive, but keep in mind with Android just because an app is "active" doesn't necessarily mean it's using any resources, e.g. CPU power, at the time. If you were to open another app, heck I dunno...YouTube or something, kept it running in the background and went into SystemPanel, you'd see that YouTube is using CPU power. When SystemPanel isn't active and open, it won't be using enough CPU/battery power for you to be concerned about. Don't worry...you're fine.

    Thanks for answering this question. I just searched for it. Would it be smart to just remove this app, altogether?
