    Is there a hack that disables programs from staying open but doesn't rid the taskbar? I had one that did this automatically but I couldn't access the iPod controls/Portrait lock cause the taskbar wouldnt open.

    There is RemoveBG SBSettings but I was wondering if there was something that did it automatically instead of having to press it everytime.

    I have it.
    Does it kill backgrounding process? I though all it does it remove them from the taskbar.

    I was looking for something that will kill the processes automatically while keeping the Taskbar.

    The first hack I used ("disable iOS4 Multitasking") did it, but disabled the taskbar.

    It closes apps that are not running tasks (processes). In other words, it removes all apps from the list that have no business being there.

    If you install Backgrounder it can be configured to close apps when closed/ minimized... It will work with IOS4 Multitasking enabled. It also has "over rides" for the "native" apps, i.e. Mail, iPod, Phone etc...

    Yeah, but I think a lot of people want apps closed/removed even if they are using the Fast App Switching API.
