    Ok, I did a search and didn't find anything relating to this topic. Sorry if I overlooked it.

    Ok, so I use ATK and when I use the desktop widget it tells me how many apps it killed along with how much free memory I have. I usually have anywhere from 85-95mb available. But whenever I'm done playing Angry Birds it significantly increases to about 120-130mb. Any other app/game I use it never increases the memory, it just decreases it a tad. I thought, if anything, that playing a game would decrease it. Does anyone else experience this?

    Not sure about the memory thing, but definitely get rid of the task killer. It is more of a drain on your battery than any of the apps or programs it is supposed to stop.

    It's the android system killing background apps to make room for Angry Birds.

    Right. Android's OS kills apps automatically to free RAM on demand. Since Angry Birds is a fairly demanding app, more background tasks are killed by the system automatically to run it. Using a task killer is redundant, since the OS already does this when it's needed. Every time you use a task killer when it's unnecessary to end apps that are needed, the system actually does more work/uses more battery to restart those apps. It's a tough mentality to get out of, that more RAM is better, but in the world of Android, it's irrelevant.
