    i760 soft reset

    How often do you soft reset phone and at what memory value do you do this at.
    I am trying to determine if my phone has a memory issue.
    Based on daily usage I may need to do this once per week.
    Is this normal?

    Only third party app is memaid.
    Daily usage is phone and email.

    I do it every night before charging my phone. I actually run MEMMaid first, then soft reset, then turn phone/radio off, then charge. then ZZZZ

    Usually ~ 18MB before Soft Reset, ~ 28 MB after.

    Thanks for the reply.
    I am trying to understand how WM6 works with program memory.
    It seems that all actions with unit effect memory over course of day.
    I soft reset this morning and had 34.7 meg. As of now it is down to 32 meg.
    I used memaid quite often today to clear up the junk.
    I thought I may have had an issue with memory leak but now I think it is just a function of how WM6 works.

    Isn't this the same thing? When I soft reset it goes through the same boot-up as when I hold down the power button for 3 secs then turn back on?

    Turning off device and powering back up actually resets program memory like a soft reset.
    I just did that.
    Coming from a Treo 650 which I left on 24/7 I am not used to WM6 device.
    I guess I'll turn off phone at night so I won't need to do soft resets.

    Is anyone using Oxios Hibernate as a scheduled task? I was wondering if that worked.

    If you are running into performance issues then you may have a problem and you should worry about it.

    However, if you are not having performance issues then life is good. Maybe WM6 dosent release memory until it has to?

    I have been letting WM6 manage memory automatically, not bothering with closing programs manually or anything and it seems to be working pretty well. I haven't noticed any memory related issues. Only once when starting the camera app did it tell me to hold while it freed additional memory - took about 2-3 seconds.

    So far for me, manually closing programs after use and memory manager programs are unneccesary and would seem more trouble than they are worth.

    I agree with JDCJ and kind of what I was getting at in my last post.
