    If you use ADW or LauncherPro and if after using your browser, email or any other apps for awhile, then if you press the 'HOME' button, if it takes forever to redraw your home screen, and you are sick of that HORRIBLE LAG, then try this: In a terminal,
    type su and enter.
    Then type echo ro.HOME_APP_ADJ=1 >> /data/local.prop and enter.
    Then reboot.
    Now evaluate whether or not this fixes your lag.

    If you want to undo what this command does, simply remove that toggle from: /data/ local.prop


    Can somebody please explain to me what exactly is happening by making these adjustments that is making screen lag for the apps mentioned disappear?

    This work-around has been around for a while and has definitely helped me. AFAIK it tells the OS to keep the launcher in memory, but I could be wrong.
