Just install a few more and see it go down even more. The manufacturer claims on their website that applications are installed onto the SD card, but that is not the case. I guess we will have to wait until we can get Root on this device and use A2SD ourselves.

Nope, not had that issue once.
3) lastly how does one switch of the unit correctly - do you poer down from android and then flick the power button. or just use the power button
I hold the main button next to the display until it asks me if I want to Power Down the MID. I say yes and the tablet turns off. If I am on the road, I also use the little slider on the side to turn it off completely (although that one looks a little flimsy to me so I try not to use it in case it breaks off).To turn it on, just hold the main button again. The MID charges a lot faster if it is turned off.

@KKCpressing the main (on the face of the device) puts the screen to sleep, pressing it againg wakews the screen up. Press and hold this same button gives you the option to shut the device down.

[quote author=Mikeami link=topic=389.msg3485#msg3485 date=1275252447]@GevrikI'm new at Android (never owned a android phone). What is the proper way to exit an application? Do you (i) always have to go into ES Task Manager and kill it?[/quote]There is no real need to kill applications, as Android manages them itself. From the documentation:By default, every application runs in its own Linux process. Android starts the process when any of the application's code needs to be executed, and shuts down the process when it's no longer needed and system resources are required by other applications.I use the ES Task Manager widget on the home screen and just tap it when I want to kill all running processes.

@GevrikThanks Gevrik, so if I'm running the pdf reader which uses a lot of my system resources, and brings my device to a crawl, then close out of it by hitting the home button (and not killing the app) I can go to another application and regain thos system [email protected] I know is that if I hold the main screen button for 3 seconds I get a pop up that has two options:Silent mode andPower off, which completely shuts my system down, I then use the on/off toggle switch for good measure. I think the on/off toggle switch is there so the device does not turn itself on by something leaning against the button, eating up your short battery supply while your watering your potato garden.
