    So something is going on with my Droid Pro. Works fine for a while, then the various applications that I am using become unresponsive and I get the warning box that the program is not responding (force close, wait etc)

    it seems any application that I have to add inputs to, this happens to, email, facebook etc.

    Right now It is reporting Activity Home (in application home) is not responding.

    My guess is it is memory related, dont have a clue how to proceed..

    When this happens, is see com.android.inputmethod using the most battery.. right now on mine it is using 28%.

    SD card has 1.03GB of available space, and application space is reporting 350MB available.

    I don't have a "cool" dev answer - but I can tell you that I had the same problem - and by combining two techniques I've almost eliminated the problem.

    1. I click on the App Killer widget about three times or so a day.
    2. I try to remember to reboot the phone once a day.

    I'm sure with the apps I use I get memory leaks (things like running Pandora and Navigation while driving.) But when I started following those 2 things, I stopped having problems. Good Luck!
