    When my Epic boots off a fresh restart I have approximately 140M of Ram available but over the next day for so it drops to as low as 60M and I will notice sometimes when i kill apps with ATK it kills 22 apps:eek: and then it will raise my RAM up to ~120. It seems that when my ram runs lows it shuts off my live wallpaper and reverts to the standard. My question is why do all these programs load and eat up the RAM when i have never used them. IE media hub, amazon mp3 , qik etc etc they all just start on their own running in the background. Is there anyway to get them to stop loading and is killing all of them at once a bad idea?

    I haven't sweated my ram since I read a few posts on linux and android's mem management. Try watchdog, system panel, and check out some of the power management threads and tips tricks/support. Spend an hour perusing those and you'll find tons of info, and a few schools of thought on the subject.
