    Okey I just found out in the other thread that I could use backgrounder to keep my safari running & downloading without having to stay on safari. It's super cool however I read that it also a terrific battery sucker so if I dont have the need for it can I turn it off by Bosspref or Sbsetting or watever

    Well you cant turn it off in that way all you have to do is open the app (safari) and hold the home button until the app quits. Also you can use processes addon for sb settings and manuall kill all processes running in the background.

    Backgrounder doesn't even automatically keep your processes running if you simply press the Home button (as usual) to quit the app. As far as i know, holding the Home button for a few seconds brings up a screen that says "Release Home to enable backgrounding for this app" or something like that. If you continue holding the Home button, it will simply force-quit the app as usual.

    And as chavanak said, you can get the Processes add-on for SBSettings in Cydia to manually kill any running apps.

    Yeah I already know that. I just wanna know if there is a toogle of that app for SBsetting or Bosspref to turn that completely off because if I forget which apps I set to run in background, wouldn't that be such a tragedy as the battery will drain a lot ?

    Just get SysInfoPlus and kill the apps that are running in the background.
    This will stop them being backgrounded and, unless you have turned them on inside the backgrounder app itself, will prevent them being backgrounded again untill you say so.
