ive tried these programs in the past, and theyve never helped my Rezound. Annoyingly, the previous apps i've tried always disable things i need, like auto-syncing emails. Does this do the same thing? i use my cell phone to get work emails, which i need nearly instantly.
It doesn't disable auto-syncing per se. It limits it to the period of your choosing (shortest syncing period the application got is every five minutes) and limits the duration of the auto sync function (15 secs - 5 minute). Which saves the battery by syncing only for specific time and duration and then shuts down until the next syncing.
Here how I got mine set, for my needs: http://i.imgur.com/NtRXe.jpg
You can change it.

Sorry but that is just plain stupid. What's the point in having a smartphone if you are not going to use it as such? This app turns off your email, Facebook (for those who use it), Twitter, etc and all the services in the background that may or may not be needed (smells like system crash to me).
It basically turns your "smart" phone into a "dumb" phone. I sincerely think that using these apps do more harm than good. Just my point.
You over exaggerating a bit there. You can white list any application from shutting down and even your social networking and email apps aren't constantly syncing to save your battery (check the settings in most of them). So why leave it open, if it's not doing anything but just draining the battery?

if i had a phone together with my usage pattern that would not last a day until i go to bed i would seriously consider to replace it. i tried such apps occassionally but i never found them too useful.
I tried many too. That's the first that actually helped me. After trying the xda pro version for a few days, I forked out and bought it for auto updates.
