I checked running tasks (via task mgr) and found an app (pocket auctions) was running 80% CPU. I had been using it earlier...but had moved on to something else. I tried bringing up the app and then returning back to the home screen, but that didn't help. I killed the task and everything was back to normal. For an OS without "close" buttons in the apps...I think it may, unfortunately, be necessary.
