    I always find that deleting apps that i dont use anymore as well as deleting things from my sd card that i dont need anymore always helps. may just be me. give it a try

    Rebooting my phone once a day before going to work, and using an app that clears my cache once a week automatically keeps my X running nicely.

    You can google "clear system cache droid x" for detailed instructions but you need to hold down the home and power buttons. When the Moto logo appears I believe that you can let go of the power button.

    Have the phone turned off. Then hold the home and power button until you see an Android. Then press the two volume buttons and the recovery menu will pop up. Use the volume buttons to go to format cache and select it with the power button. Then reboot.

    You can look for a task monitor app and see if you can pin point any apps that are taking up too much resources.

    Just don't use a task killer.

    Task killers can be very useful, just not when set to auto kill. What I would suggest is downloading Watchdog. It's an app that monitors your CPU and alerts you when an app is using to much of the CPU. That is what can cause the phone to run slowly, not the ram so much, which is what most task killers only deal with.

    I also just suggest using the built in task killer if you just need to monitor and kill. You really don't need anything more, I really like the stock one! :)

    Download watchdog (can be lite, that's all I use) that should really help you if that is the problem!

    I don't get it. I use a task killer and have since day one. I have a slew of apps on auto kill (does a kill two minutes after display timeout) and have never had an issue.
