Running Services - Background Processes

This section provides a tutorial example on how to review running services, or background processes, on my Android tablet. Those background processes are started automatically and running all the time.

Since Android is a multi-tasking system, let's see what are currently running on my tablet.

Tap on "Settings", "Applications", then "Running services". I see a long list of items displayed:

LGESystemService             4.3MB
SpeakerSwitch                4.9MB
Google Service                10MB
Maps                         7.3MB
Android keyboard             8.4MB

RAM 108MB used, 364MB free

It seems to me that those are background processes that are started automatically and running all the time. I should leave them alone.
