I've never asked this springboard question
I use teleport and other apps that require a lot of memory resources and a lot of times I have to manually kill the safari and mail programs to free some background services up.
I have the reset springboard tool, but was curious If resetting the springboard would reset the background processes the same way as if I do it manually in each program with holding the home button down for each program.
I think I have to reboot to do that, but was just curious as I was hoping for a faster process.
If that is the case this is my request for a dev to make a kill all switch for background resources.

I beleive that it must becasue I started using the respring tool and it makes my battery last much longer. I experimented on my 1st gen iPhone where I have SysInfo (think thats the name of the app) installed. I had been using the SysInfo to kill services to save battery life then discovered that a respring will do the same. I'd go back into SysInfo and teh processs would not be running after respring.

What can I use on 2.0 to monitor the background processes and see if the respring works?

I'm guessing 'top'.
Description: at-a-glance process watching tool.
edit: Don't know how it works. I'm guessing command line-ish.

I couldnt figure out TOP either but didn't really spend time researching it, but I do know my battery lives longer if I respring.
