I watched the space invaders lesson, and I realized I might be doing this one wrong. Am I supposed to be lifting each finger off the fret board after I play each note.

Good question. The space invaders exercise looks similar to this one but it really is aimed more at strength development than speed so, on that exercise it is vital to keep each finger down until it's needed for its next note. This Speed Developer exercise however, has a different purpose really: to help you play faster. So yes, in this one it is important to lift each finger off after each note as shown in the demonstrations on the video.
