Alright lets get things started off with a useful app known as "Startup Auditor".
This application comes in handy much in the same way a Task Manager would except it boots up on start up and lets you prevent apps from booting up on startup so you won't have to deal with "killing" them later. I appreciate the common sense by the developer in coming up with a much needed application thats cheap and easy to configure.
When you open it it immediately lists all of the applications that automatically initialize on start up. Make sure to stay away from disabling those needed by the Android OS. Good rule of thumb as in with a Task Killer is if you don't know what it does, don't shut it down.
When you click on an app, it provides a brief description of what the package is used for if available as well as a two check boxes for "Startup Disable" and "Keep Disabled". This is pretty much the meat of the app as it allows you to prevent apps from booting up without your knowledge and keeping them shut down if they try to initialize on their own in the future. I've found a lot more free memory since starting to use this application and highly recommend it for new Nexus One users as well as everyone else.
For more information about this application please visit the developer's website.
