Sorry if it's a daft question but what apps really eat away at the battery that i should keep checked in this app?

Also what apps should I uncheck so it doesn't kill them (i.e. really shd leave those ones running)??

I've got a stock Orange San Francisco on Voda.

NB Anyone local to ournemouth/Poole who could help me (i.e. do it!) the Boot and apply custom rom please???

I stopped using a Task Killer, it didn't improve anything.

Android manages memory use very well on it's own.

Good article by one of the forum members here http://myhtcdesire.com/tipstweaks/task-killers-you-really-dont-need-them

To save battery, turn screen brightness down, avoid using widgets which are constantly updating, reduce the frequency of updating.

Being the owner of a Desire, my advice is stay close to a plug socket.

yep, when i used that Task killer I would have instability on various system apps, including the FM radio. I would ditch it and just do as Bobbajob suggests. Also, you can get apps such as Timeriffic which you can schedule to switch off (rather than kill) stuff - e.g. overnight i turn off my data and wifi and then re-activate it in the morning...

You should be able to tell what Apps are using by going to: Settings/Applications/Running Services.
