Default Killing Processes

Please Login to Remove!

Hey everyone! I have noticed that a few applications are always running when I do the ATL + Escape; Home, phone, messages and the browser. Now, with most apps, when I Menu -> Close them, they go away but a few, for example the IM application on the 7100t, will stay open even after i say exit. One, is there a way via the OS or an application to kill unwanted processes? And (or?) two, does it even matter? Is this affecting battery life, memory, and/or device speed? Thanks for any help!

Cool

Wow I never realized you could do this!!

This is great, just like ALT+TAB in windows, which I use all the time.

But now I am concerned with the running processess. LOL.


EDIT: The more I think about it, things like "Browser", "Phone", "Messages", "Home Screen" are some of the ones that are listed in mine. Now that makes think that they are there for convience(SP). I haven't tried it yet, but I assume ALT+ESC works when you are in a call, so then you could switch to those quickly, so if I am assuming correctly they aren't actually "Running", but kind of "Shortcuts".

Now I also have "Verichat" and "Messenger" running, but I understand why those are running, because they have to be in order to get messages and you can just kill those from the messenger.
