YMMV. Well, I contend that Froyo, or some poorly written apps (or low-level base routines on phones like the MT) may be making things unreliable.
Once every couple of days, I completely power down the phone.
Between those days, I run Advanced Task Killer and 1Tap Cache Cleaner downloaded from the market.
Doing these things keeps the unit always responsive.
Everyone says the Android OS is good at managing memory and there is no need to use a cleaner or killer, but honestly, I beg to differ as my experience teaches me otherwise.
I've seen the benefits of cleaning things periodically on both a Samsung Intercept (Running Eclair and then Froyo), and the MT running Froyo.
Supposidly, Gingerbread will be even better at memory management.
Remember, there could be some buggy programs you are using, or there could be a low-level problem with the phone's services or drivers. Hard to say.
Try my suggestion and report back in a few days if it helps you.
Oh yeah, download a program like Free Advanced Task Manager, and move your programs to the SDCard.
