    Is there a way to edit the automatic Start Up program list?

    There are a few programs that are set to launch upon startup that I would rather not have load automatically. I don't want to delete the programs, I just don't want them running right away.

    Thanks!

    Twitroyd, for one, which theoretically I'll never use anyway.
    Email - occassional use only. This is a gift for my son, which I might steal every now and again.
    Messaging - no need
    Settings - can pull up as necessary.
    Photoshop - occassional use only.

    I don't actually want to remove the apps I've listed (except possibly Twidroid) ... I just don't want them to load automatically upon startup. Say, for example, photoshop ... I want that program to review/edit pictures after a hockey or soccer game that my kids have played in (pics that I've taken on another camera and installed via memory card) ... but if I just want to start up the device to play Angry Birds, Photoshop doesn't need to be running in the background as well.

    If I can reduce the number of programs that load upon booting up the device ... maybe the boot time will be reduced?
