    Uninstall the app. It's the apps that do this. they always want to run.

    And if you WANT to GET voicemail, the app needs to be running.

    Yeah. I found ATK to be more of a nuisance than a help.

    If you're running windows do CTRL ALT DEL and you'll see the same thing going on.

    I use to run task killer but found that by tweeking basic settings like reducing the time the phone stays lite up from 30 to 15 seconds made a world of difference.

    Apps run in RAM it isn't eating clock cycles. In the beginning ATK was a must haveuntil folks realized it smoked thebattery and the phone actually runs slower. I tweaked all the settings on her Evo and it's ran much better.

    ATK does make my phone run a bit slower but it's helped my battery life A LOT. I just messed with the settings for ATK and it works fine for me...
