comment Can using too much RAM drain battery?
Your temple-run example might not be the best: as games can memory-hungry they either will be OS-killed rather quickly, or pro-actively will save the important data away when send to the background. It might load a little bit faster in that case because some small part is still loaded, but the game data will probably need to load anyway. A better example would be a simple twitter client: that might fit nice and cosy in your RAM until you need it again.

Indeed, this was not development related (I'd have asked it on SO then :) )

comment How do I stop the 3g/4g radio from turning off?
(I don't know why I added this as a comment to this answer, and not on your question :) ) Anyway: market.android.com/details?id=com.google.android.youtube , and then press reviews, and sort by newest

Hmm, doesn't seem to work for me. Wouldn't that 'creating thumbnails' be for the thumbnails-of-the-thumbnails that astro needs, not the thumbnails self (the files allready in that directory, that are thumbs of your photos?)

comment correct image orientation from camera
You might want to watch out with that. I don't know if it differs between windows-versions, but the windows image-viewer does not always do "lossless" rotation: that means you are loosing quality because it is re-saving them and adding another 'layer' of JPG-compression. Consider using another tool for that, one that supports lossless-rotation
