So what are you using your tablet for? Reading ebooks? If you have more than 1 user process running at a time, in addition to system processes it gets bogged down. Android is great at multitasking...256k RAM is not. I have my 70 trimmed down to skinny, having removed some bloatware apps. Normal is around 55-60% of RAM usage during standby.
If I decide to break out a game, like Dungeon Hunter or another system hog...I run into occassional FC's if I haven't freed up some RAM. A TASK MANAGER helps me select the things I want to shut down to free that RAM for an app / process that I choose to run. Stop confusing TASK KILLER with TASK MANAGER
. (Was a typo in my response earlier) Yes the app allows me to kill tasks, the difference is...I'm killing what I CHOOSE to kill.
PS - I haven't done much to alter start up apps thru this Manager, just have used it to trim fat and gain control of my RAM usage.
