    Default epic slow and stuttering in the morning

    When I wake up in the morning my epic is extremely slow and laggy. I have to restart the phone, and then everything is good again?

    Anyone have similar issues or can explain/fix this problem?

    The Epic has a built in task manager. This can be accessed but holding down the Home button. Click the task manager, and kill all running apps. This will essentially do the same thing as restarting the phone (in terms of what you're trying to accomplish by doing so).

    I was using the Epic built in task manager and it's decent. I would suggest downloading advanced task killer. I found it shows some apps that were not showing up in the built in task manger in touchwiz. Maybe your epic is just hung over?

    I would recommend using the Samsung task manager. The reason why its bot showing up is probably because those are core apps that the system needs in order to run correctly, and removing them via a third party task manager could mess up the phone.

    I agree; did the same thing. I just made sure I didn't kill core apps.

    I was using the Advanced Task Manager. I uninstalled it yesterday, and this morning my phone was doing much better.

    The phone would be stuttering even after I used the ATM to kill ALL running apps, so I'm guessing it was the ATM?

    Is there a way to disable apps autostarting?

    Sorta. Restarting the phone resets memory and the OS to 'cleaner' state. But yes I believe that the built in task manager should be used by all.

    Advanced task killer can definitely cause issues. As for starting apps I wouldn't worry too much and just load the widget and if the phone ie running sluggish then check what it says is eating the most CPU cycles. This phone has more then enough hardware to load everything it has from default and multitask well on top of that. I have only found a few apps that can temporarily tax the system (flickr uploader) enough to see any sort of minor slow downs. What you saw was probably task manager doing something it shouldn't have.

    Cool. I figured as much when the phone seemed fine after the atm uninstall. Thanks for the help.
