    Can someone recommend a Task Killa please? I see their are various on the app market, I assume the free ones are not as good as those which you have to pay for?

    Not at all. You can "test drive" any Market apps for 24hrs so my advice is d/l a few and see which you prefer yourself.

    watch out with these things stop the alarm clocks I have found out on more than a few occasions....

    no alarm - wake up late ! ARGH - a bit short sighted on the developers front... I use task manager 1.10.4 - works really well

    Probably 'cos they 'kill' the Clock process which controls the alarms. If you're going to use task killers, you need to know which processes/apps are required by the system (or by others) and exclude them.

    Yes, I use Task Panel and it does kill the alarm clock even though I put the alarm clock under the ignore list. I was late for work a few times. I bought a mini Casio alarm clock.
