Does anyone else periodically reboot their phone? I've found that if I leave it on for about a week some crazy things seem to happen, like whenever I use my hard keyboard it'll activate the keyboard shortcuts instead of actually typing. It also just seems more fluid and less prone to lag if I reboot about once every three days.
Similar stories anyone?

I reboot my phone usually once a week unless I am busy modding it, then it gets rebooted quite a bit... LOL... but I have done this since my D1...

When I used a dumb phone, the only time it rebooted was on a system crash which was rare. I shutoff my stock Droid X2 every night. If I don't, it gets funky. My preference is to keep the device on 24/7 and occasionally reboot.

I reboot every morning on a full charge. If nothing else the placebo effect makes me feel like it is running better lol.

I actually did a little test recently and had my phone's Up time to 300hrs. I noticed some things slowed down a bit, like going back to the homescreen would take a good 3-5sec instead of almost instantly like normal. Restarted and it was back to being smooth as ever. After that little experiment, I'll probably be restarting my phone every week.
