    hi all. when I first got my desire I killed apps regularly with atk. then I read about android's memory management and uninstalled atk to let the phone manage itself.
    now I find the available RAM can easily drop to under 50mb at which point the phone is noticeably slower and laggy and eventually I am forced to manually reclaim some RAM.

    is this right ? am I doing something wrong ?

    I don't want to cause problems by using a task killer but don't want the phone performance to drop either, if it can be helped.

    Try using ATK again, and see if the performance of the phone gets any better. If it does then just go with it. You don't need to use a task killer though.
