google talk wont stay signed out
I searched and didn't find anything about this. I go into running services and click stop, and then a little while later I go back in to check and it is on again. I have do not auto sign as my selection. I have my syncs to manual and I don't use gmail. What would cause it to sign back in by itself when I tell it not to?

Hey OP....my Evo, since the update does this very same thing. I'd like for it to quit popping up but can't get it to. Before the update, going into Running Services, I'd stop it and it wouldn't come up but since the update...I can't seem to kill it off for good.
Hopefully a bug they iron out.
I wonder if uninstalling it would be okay. I would think that if I were in fact to ever need it, I could simply go and download it again....but am reluctant to for worry of it causing a hiccup to other google services.

We want this to stop and in order to do so, one must go into Running Services and click on it for it to stop.....just as Sprint has instructed. SEE HERE. This used to work prior to the update. But, if you rebooted the Evo, you'd have to go in and stop it otherwise that option would stay in effect. However, since the update...GTalk keep appearing shortly after stopping it, in perpetual fashion.

I've made it a habit to go right into my settings and killing the google talk service after any reboot of my phone. Google Talk app doesn't sign in, but the service runs, and yes it does kick the crap out of the battery, and it does NOT affect gmail.
I will also turn off google talk from my gmail account on my computer to see if that does anything.

Damnit.... It comes back up. Just for clarification.....I'm not signed in...it doesn't sign me in but the program is running for 6 minutes after I last closed it. This is bull!
Having followed Sprints tips on this, my battery life had shot up through the roof. I saw significant improvement excercising all their tips. Now this...

I guess this means we keep forcing the service to shut down after reboots. Kind of lame, but it gets the job done, and my battery lasts much longer!

Unless some credible source were to say that uninstalling GTalk would be safe and have no bearing on the functionality of the other google apps and services, I'm holding back from actually proceeding with the uninstall.
I don't need it. I sure wish this issue was more popular, or at least enough to warrant the attention and thus action to address it.
