    I looked through another thread that was asking the the same question but i didnt seem to find any answers or solutions, so i decided to revisit the problem

    has anyone noticed that some applications just seem to start themselves up and run in the background? I have the advanced task killer, and this morning i did a reboot of the phone (coming from blackberry storm1, rebooting is just who i am, i do it every 2-3 weeks) and i would expect some applications to start themselves up on a system startup, no problems there. So i open the ATK and i kill any apps that i know i will not be using anytime soon, which is most of them. anywho, after that i literally dont use my phone at all... i lock it and it has been in my pocket since i left the house. yet, just now, i open up my task killer just to check what is running, and my music, my voice dialer, my calender, and a bunch of other applications are just running... whats up with that?

    I have read others saying that the apps running in the background dont take up much memory... i call bs... before i kill the excess apps, i notice my free memory (at top of ATK) is around 30mb. after i kill the apps, im back up to 55mb+ so, please, has anyone found a solution to this problem?

    The only real solution is to just turn off the phone.

    The OS is designed to have processes running in the background.

    When you open another application, it will take the resources from one of those running in the background. There's nothing to worry about.

    Luckily, you won't have to wait too much longer for 2.1. :D
