Why is it that..........?

I have advanced task killer installed on my moment and my wife has it on her cliq. If i open it and kill all the running apps, a minute later most of them will be running again without me ever using them. Things like alarm clock, sprint navigation, and some others also. I dont use the stock alarm clock, and i rarely use sprint nav. My wifes does the same thing only worse. Andy ideas?

It's a memory management "feature". If a core app (sprint nav for example) can handle a function (GPS decoding ) anytime another app needs it Sprint Nav will start up partially and provide it. It stays open until the OS tells it that some more memory is needed and it closes. No real harm. You'll find after a few days it settles in to a nice little cycle according what you use the phone for most. Unless it becomes a serious issue, IMO it's best to let it run itself.
