too many running apps
Using android booster, I see that I usually have about 77-90 apps running all the time. Most of these apps I havent even opened since turning the phone on. Even when optimizing, I still have 33 running! How can I control whats running automatically? I am rooted, if it helps.

Android works this way and runs apps in the background, but they shouldn't use any resources. That said, that's on stock android. When I check a sense UI phone and see all those things loaded up it doesn't sit well with me. But it shouldn't matter. Check your idle current drain with the current widget to see how efficient your phone is running. It should pull less than 5 mA during idle sleep.

When you shut down the phone and then power it on again, does that close all running apps like pressing the power button and choosing restart does? I have only restarted my phone once (I only bought it about a week ago) and that seemed to take a lot longer to boot than turning the phone on and off.

I'm not sure about the specifics, but it may take longer for the restart because you have "Fast Boot" enabled. If you go to Menu -> Settings -> Applications, you'll see the "Fast Boot" option. Like I said, I'm not sure how exactly this works, but I think it's on my default and that's probably why you see a difference in time between Restart and Turn off/on.
