    To the best of my knowledge, no it should not. However certain hints left running, such as GPS, will.

    On a side note. If you like helix launcher, consider looking at LauncherPro Beta. Very similar concept, but FAR better execution.

    Download Dropbox for you phone from the market place, create an account.
    Download Astro file manager for your phone from the market.
    Download the .APK for ADW or Launcher Pro on your computer (those are links to the direct downloads btw)
    Place it into your Dropbox account from your computer, and it will show up on your phone.
    Use Astro to open up the .APK
    It should now install the Launcher you chose.

    Hope that helps! I have never had the battery drain any more or less while using either. :D
