    i try to figure out how long my battery willl last after charge. So i try to mannage the programs and not have them running , i installed advanced app killer and discover that some apps keep starting them selfs all the time , one is google maps , i don't use it @ all and it keeps running itself , can i shut this off . MSN messenger also strats itself once in a while.


    Oh and also moxier mail , i did not even configured this app , and still it keeps starting itself

    If you're trying to maximize battery life then start with your battery info screen and analyzing your usage. Worrying about background apps isn't the most effective approach since they don't consume resources.

    Try the SystemPanel app. It should give you loads of information about running processes.
