Question about Toshiba e800 Pocket PC

1 Answer

Applications After using some applications I turn them off only to find that they are still running in the background. Is there any setting or software that would allow me to exit an application and NOT have it using up battery power in the background?

I use e800 too and I switch them off manually. You are right. All used applications running in background. All of them are listed in “running” tab. Like I said you can switch them off manually singly or all of them with “select all” option.

My samsung Galaxy S4 battery is draining quickly


Actually, increasing battery life for Android Phone is not such a difficult thing as you think. To make your device run for a longer time, you only need to adjust some settings of your device like reducing the brightness of screen, disabling wireless network, quitting background software and so on.

Boost your computer performance


<p><span> <p>Your computer's performance mainly depends on the "Processor" and "RAM" availability. I am sure that whatever computer you have is capable enough to run your normal daily tasks smoothly. It should not stuck or freeze while checking emails, writing documents, watching movies or songs, printing or doing business online. These are some very basic tasks and require minimum resources to execute. Any computer with a normal system configuration should work them out easily, but we still face sluggish performance or freezing up while doing these tasks.<br /> <p> The reason behind this is the processor and memory status of your computer at that time. You can check the real time status from "Task manager" which you can pull up by pressing "Ctrl + Shift + Esc" key on keyboard. Following steps would optimize the processor and memory uses of your computer and make it more efficient:<br /> <p><br /> <p>&middot; Check running processes at background:<br /> <p>Every application we use has several processes running in background to make it work. Sometimes we are not even aware of the extra unwanted software or applications which start automatically and keep running in background and eat up our processor and memory usage. This you can check by Task manager's "processes" list. Also some of these applications show their notification icons in "system tray" area which is where you see the system time on your desktop. Try to keep minimum application running in background and this will make our system smooth as it will have more resources to utilize.<br /> <p>Follow the below steps to disable unwanted applications:<br /> <p>1. Click on "start", click on "run" or press "Flag key + R" from keyboard. Type" msconfig" on the "run" window and hit "enter".<br /> <p>2. This should bring "system configuration utility" windows on screen.<br /> <p>3. Click on the "startup" TAB on the top menu. This tab holds all applications which start automatically when you turn on your computer.<br /> <p>4. Check the list carefully and uncheck the ones you don't need.<br /> <p>5. If you are not sure about some application, type its name in google search, figure out its use and decide to whether you want to keep it running or disable it.<br /> <p>6. Once you are done with the List, click on "Services "tab on top.<br /> <p>7. This "services" tab holds all important programs which give a platform for other software to work.<br /> <p>8. Check the box in bottom which says "Hide all Microsoft services".<br /> <p>9. Now you have the list of non-Microsoft programs running in background. Some of these might be you antivirus software, backup software or messengers and others may be unwanted ones.<br /> <p>10. Identify the not required items and uncheck them.<br /> <p>11. Click on "Apply" and then "OK".'<br /> <p>12. It might give you a windows asking for "restart computer" or "Exit without restart ".<br /> <p>13. Choose "Exit without restart"<br /> <p>14. Close all other windows make sure none of you important files are open and then restart your computer.<br /> <p>15. If later you want to enable any services back, just follow the same process and "Check" them in the list.<br /> <p> <br /> <p>&middot; Keep track of free disk space on root drive:<br /> <p>Free space on root drive (mostly c :\) is very important as this space is used for virtual memory or paging, hibernation and other system requirements. Ensure that at least 3 - 5 GB space should be available on root drive. If you have less than this, delete some temporary or junk files from "temp" and "%temp%" folders.<br /></span><br />

Make sure that all programs you have been using are closed when you press the cross (X). The factory settings are se to minimize the application instead of closing the program. This will keep all the applications running on the background instead of actually being closed. There are options under the menu setting options that give you the option of closing the applications by taping X or by pressing and holding X. I set tapping on mine.
The more programs running on the background the more memory usage.
