    Was wondering why some apps that don't need to open to update there info like weather bug, show up in Advanced task kill running? Like an alarm clock or spare parts app.

    Or why does weather bug show up even inside the 6 hour time frame I set up for it to update.

    Also wondering If I use the weather bug short cut on my home screen and not the WB widget will that stop it from ever opening/updating unless I open it by tapping the short cut icon.

    thanks

    I think some apps start themselves so they can check to see whether there's a Market update, or not. (Sounds crazy, I know.) Also, some apps are linked to others and need to run at certain times. The only other reason I can think of is Google is trying to get all of us OCD patients to blow our brains out! :( :D
