    Possible fix in the .621 OTA update.

    Leftspin, I did that on your advice. How do I check what is running without it now and shut off seldom used apps?

    To check what is running you can go to Settings -> Applications -> Manage Applications, then click the "Running" tab at the top of the page. There is no need to shut off seldom used apps, as the Android OS does a pretty good job of managing running apps on it's own - and as stated above, if you try to use another app to do this you can run into trouble. Just because an app is 'running' doesn't mean that it's actively hogging up CPU cycles - generally they are just sitting dormant in memory. If you start other apps that need extra space in memory, Android will remove running apps that you aren't using from memory to make space.

    When my DX was randomly rebooting, I just replaced the battery. Ever since I haven't had any issues. Might be worth just ordering one off Amazon for like $5 or so to try it out.
