    Anyone else experience this? This morning i booted the phone and when sliding between panels it was slightly slow and laggy compared to normal operation. Some of my chat programs were laggy as well. It seem to have fixed itself now but it was odd. I use task killer and there wasn't much running.

    Also whats up with the spacebar? Half the time it doesnt register

    Haven't experienced any of this.

    Task killer is not recommended.

    I think you've got a lemon. Mine is fine and the space bar works fine. You could try recalibrating your screen to fix the space bar but the "laggyness" sounds like a problem with your phone.

    I have that on mine every once in a while. Yesterday for a minute or so the touchscreen wasn't working at all. After a battery pull, everything seemed to get back in order, but I have noticed that after you wake it up sometimes after being inactive for a while, the screen sometimes takes a few seconds to wake up. Maybe I've got a defective phone also. 98% of the time though, it seems to work quite well with no problems.

    I'm glad to hear someone else is having this problem. Mine is happening in the morning when I pick up the phone. The optilcal trackball works great but the screen won't hardly recognize imput. I try shutting it off and restarting it that doesn't help. After bout 10 minutes or so it starts to work fine. Once is works it runs fine all day. Maybe I'm just not letting it get enough rest. LOL Kind of a pain but figured it was just me.

    Am also having sporadic slowdowns. A reboot resolves it until the next time. Hoping that the root hack is available soon and maybe even better a ported CM from koush. Was great on the droid.

    Install OSMonitor... there's an option to have it report CPU usage in the notifier bar. This way you can at least see if its a bad app or a background process

    Thanks.great app.

    My system/bin/mediaserver is constantly running with more than 70% cpu.

    Happens also right after a reboot.

    This phone so far has been nothing not perfect! I have yet to experience any of the issues other people are having with theirs. The incredible so far is the best smart phone I have owned so far.

    If you are using the optical track pad while flipping through the 7 home screens and having slowdown, then I suggest you move your finger over the pad slower. When I moved my finger quickly, the pages lagged behind, but when I slowed the speed of my finger, the screen flipped without any problems.

    If you aren't using the track pad, then sorry, don't know the problem or solution.

    The mediaserver runs wild on mine too when using the MP3 player, but its not constant. On my Eris, mediaserver would lock up my screen alot.

    Its a core process and is probably severally over worked!

    The only slowdowns I have had are when the phone in plugged into the charger or the computer. Sluggish and laggy. Once it is unplugged, though, it works perfectly fine with no issues.

    ^ Same here. I get some pretty bad lag when I download/install apps from the market. Little annoying, but I can live with it.

    ok, so thanks to OSMonitor I was able to idenify that the mediaserver process was running at more than 70% and up to 99% constantly right after a reboot. This caused my battery to get hot, phone being sluggish at times and battery drain within 5 hours.
    After uninstalling the application 'AudioManager Pro' this issue has been resolved. I sent an email to the programmer.

    I figured out why mine was going into unresponsive screen. Somebody mentioned when it was charging. So sure enough the minute I plugged it into the charger the screen stopped working right. So I got another mini usb charger and it works fine. So you might want to check the charger, not sure why one works and the other didn't but at least I know because it was pretty frustrating.

    Installing apps does indeed cause a slowdown, but not because its a bug. I think the installer has full access to the CPU without any throttling controls. Noice how fast it installs the apps? I can swear that they install at least 4x faster then the Eris.

    I guess to contradict myself, maybe Android should throttle how much CPU the installer has access too or at least give it a low CPU priority so doesn't cause lags.

    Anyhow, non-issue to me personally (=
