Hi

I have the battery drain issue which is plastered all over this forum. I have tried to tweak systems to the limit but still unable to resolve the problem for good. Juicedefender is $hit as it messes up the APN. I used a few programs to stop apps from starting on phone boot up, they dont woirk. I saw one that explicitly said "will try to restrict this app from startup". How vague is that?

I want to be able to set certain apps from never starting up unless I click on them. I want to have them installed but only start on request. What is the best app to manage apps from never starting up on boot?

I have the following apps always starting up. I never require them but they are nice to have when I need them.

1. com.sonyericson.learningclient
2. wiper app (Dont know what this is for)
3. face rcognition service
4. Google partner setup (what is this)
5. timescape provider
6. SNS provider (no idea what this is)
7. Easy tether
8. syncmypix
9. Photoshop.com mobile
10. Task Panel
11. My Backup Pro
12. BBC news
13. Last.Fm
14. Wikitude
15. Maps
16. Moxier Mail
17. My Uploads (dont know what this is)
18. Sony Ericson Sync


How can I stop all of these apps from ever starting? What app can best manage this?

Im assuming you are not rooted.

Most effective method would be,
  1. Root your phone
  2. remove moxier like apps that you never use.
  3. other apps you wanna keep, install Startup Manager
  4. Configure all the apps you dont wanna start.

If you dont have root
  1. Install Startup Auditor and configure keep disabled option. note that this is not effective as root option.


Some apps you mentioned should not disabled. or you have the freedom to remove. pls use search most of the processes have been discussed here.

I used Startup Auditor some times ago, but i felt my phone slowed down & lagged. Removing Startup Auditor helped

well i don't wanna change the starting apps. fast reboot force closes all apps at once and frees a lot of ram. it's like a reboot of your phone and it works perfect for me. my x10 was never that smooth and fast before. but i want to exclude some apps from being closed, such as alarm clock, setcpu and battery indicator. that's only possible in pro version, which i cannot find on market.

so, does anyone has a link or an idea how to get it (legally, if possible)? or can you check if fast reboot pro is available at your region?

Finally found Fast Reboot Pro. It's way more efficient than Task killers in my opinion. If it's really not at the market anymore (like i experienced) and if it is ok with forum rules, i could upload the apk.
