    When I do Kill All, it kills this program too. Its not in my Start menu so I cant just quickly turn it back on again. How can I get it to stick and/or not turn off when I do Kill All. Using Q9c. Thanks brethren.

    you can't.. when killing tasks, highlight the task you want to continue running then select "kill all except selected"

    I installed it and showed it to SO. He gave me a weird look & I ask him now what? He said it looked nice but wasn't it a little redundant?
    (Ran for dictionary).<jk
    Asked him why he thought it was redundant & he started to crack up. Then asked me IF I could see it? Huh ?, no! Redundant, was all he said and went back to what he was doing! Oh well, at least I have it to show off to ppl when they ask me about my phone!
    (Being color blind has it's draw backs but then again, I don't know who dresses badly, either!) :laugh2:

    @ Geekster, it may be redundant <sp?> but i think it looks kinda neat.. with you being colorblind do you even see the line ?

    and maybe you dress "badly" also ? :}

    Nah-I have a stable of friends who go with me. Or I grab one of the clerks to help. But my job isn't that "glamorous" either. Blue jeans & sweat shirt & I'm ready for work. Now, my shoes! I do have some "wild" shoes! LOL

    Interesting Observation

    When I look at the battery meter in "Power Management" and this new battery meter, they both show that my battery is fully charged. However, when I plug my phone in to charge it, they both show my that my battery has decreased about 1/5 of its total lengh, as if its not fully charged. Any ideas? Thanks brethren.

    Since you guys have already been talkng about it, has anyone been succesfully able to remove vista hide battery gauge from their phone? Its not in the remove program, I only have the exe. file. If I kill it from the task mngr it freezes the phone every time. and it keeps saying permission denied when I try to remove from start up or try to delete from file explorer. Any suggestions besides a master rest?

    It's saying that because its running. Should be able to click on the exe to turn vista off then delete the exe and all the ink's you created!

    Why are you disliking the app?

    The only way I can think of stopping it is from the task mngr, but it freezes the phone everytime. I gotta pull the battery. And now that its becoming such a hassle to stop it, It makes me want to do it just so I know I can. =). I really dont dislike it. I've had it running since I dwnld it months ago. I wanted to try the new one to see if I liked it on the homscreen too.

    i've used this bar for the past couple of weeks and it's always always always off from the actual battery meter in windows. sometimes it's off by a good 1/3 screen length when its at its worse. anybody else have this problem or does the bar actually represent correct battery meter?
