    I think it has to do with the battery being at 20%. Something changed recently. I listened to a little streaming music tonight and the battery went from 50% - 20% in 20 minutes. And then my phone dialer Forced closed.

    I dont know what happened but now my droid has issues and it stinks that it does. :(

    I had this problem this morning and it seems to be fixed by removing "active task killer".

    I have also been using it ever since I got my phone. My issue started after I powered up my Droid this morning. after about 1 minute, EVERYTHING would lock up and I'd have to power the phone down manually. It only got better when I removed ATK. From what I've read on here, a task killer is totally unnecessary on a droid.

    This also happened to my droid from having antivirus software installed, which is also unnecessary.

    go into menu/applications/manage applications/menu/filter/running/ choose app/hit force stop

    The ATK's are the worst. Use the native one I just showed you above to kill apps.

    Active Task Killer should just be called Active Phone Killer. There is nothing wrong with the app in the technical sense, but aggressive use of it causes all sort of problems with the SQLite Database that is at the core of so many functions of the phone... and worst of all is really not necessary at all.
