The message that comes up when you change battery profiles gets a bit tedious after the first few times you see it. It would be nice to be able to turn it off. Even better, have a toggle button on the widget so you can flip easily. I have found that, with my SG2, I can extend the battery life by days with this feature. It is really useful.
Killing apps is (I have found) a bit futile because 90% of them spring back to life. It would be nice if you could nominate apps that should say killed (i.e. make them non-executable or whatever you do in Android) until the batter profile is changed back.
Any reason why the alert level doesn't go below 30%? It is probably a good number but it seems to me you could include 10 and 20% with not much extra coding. I assume you plan to be able to switch battery profiles automatically at the alert level?

I'll definitely pass along the suggestion about the message. Something like a "don't show again" option sounds like would be in order.
For apps that restart after killing, a lot depends on whether the app is a service or just a process. Any service will automatically restart unless your device is rooted and you freeze the app. Right now NMU has no features for a rooted device.
One thing to keep in mind around battery percentage is that percentage is not a linear change. Once you get to 10% the estimations start to get less accurate. 20% should be better. I'll definitely pass along the suggestion to allow choosing 20 at least.
