    I was at work today and turned on my AIM app to kill some time. After a while of not being active with it and letting it just sit, I notice a notification. It said "AIM is using a lot of battery life and has been running for 45mins" then gave me two options, "kill app" or "ignore". I have no task killer or manager installed (aside from the bloat that is pre-installed). Just thought this was pretty cool... or if anyone else has ran into this notification!

    There is a task manager that came pre-installed on the Bionic.

    I don't know how this is the first I'm hearing of this feature, but that sounds awesome!

    Yeah, ran into it a few times already. One app is a monitoring app I've installed that reports usage in the background, and the TM tried to ask me if I wanted to close it (and I'm glad that they made it very unobtrusive- if it had tried to tell me "You know, this app is not doing anything, and your really should go ahead and close it) I would have been irked....
