    I donot use any Task killer or battery saver app since I believe they can be done manually if necessary and why run two apps for that.

    Unused apps get cleared when the RAM gets full right, well, even if the RAM is not full and if an app had stayed unused for long, will it get cleared? 'cos its a waste of battery right.

    Here's a link that's mentioned in the things to know sticky in the section of the site. It's a pretty good read and hopefully it'll help you out with your question.

    Android Task Killers Explained: What They Do and Why You Shouldn't Use Them

    As I understand it, Android caches some apps if not currently in use so those apps will not affect your battery. I say let Android do it's thing when it comes to memory management. Killing running apps when it's supposed to run can actually have an adverse effect.
