Default Available memory

Ok, I tried searching but didn't find anything so I'll just ask... I've noticed when I first boot up, atk says I have around 250mb available memory but throughout the day it decreases to around 180 even though atk says there is nothing running...does that mean there are hidden processes that start throughout the day that potentially drain my battery and how can I stop them?

You can go to settings in atk and go to security level and change that to low, be careful with what processes you decide to kill though.

Use minfree from the market. Its a free tool to manage you ram. Don't use in conjunction with a task killer though. Task killers don't work well with froyo anyways.
