Hi There, I just bought a HTC Desire HD last week (locked on Orange UK so got it unlocked) and trying to get familiar with the OS (Android) and the phone. I have problems in managing tasks to preserve battery usage that seems to be a big problem at the moment as the battery just runs out in a day no matter how minimal is the usage during the day... I have installed the "Free Advanced Task Manager" app and it shows me the list of tasks running in background at a given time. I have set the preference to - "Kill App via details (slower)" so each time I click on force stop to stop it. However, I notice that even after selecting force stop, the application may disappear from the list of running apps screen but when I go to the battery usage window (Setting->about->phone), it's still shown as occupying a %age of the battery. Even if I keep refreshing the battery usage page, it never disappears until I re-start the phone. There's no particular app as such and at random they may appear in battery usage list even when force stopped so how to get rid of them unless the task manager app has a defect... My second question is about system startup tasks. Whenever I re-boot my phone, I see a number of tasks that automatically appear in the running list (specially like orange apps that I don't want). I read on the fourm that I will have to root the phone in order to get rid of those but in the meantime, is there a configuration where I can control which tasks to launch at startup and remove these ?
