 I was having the same problem.  This is likely a memory leak caused by
one of the applications you are running (which you could try to figure
out using a variety of methods).

Simplest way to fix this is to "reboot" the computer (ie. G1).
Easiest way to power-cycle the phone is to hold down the home, and
power button together.  After a few seconds, the screen will ask you
if you want to power down the phone.  Select yes.

This will fix your sluggishness, but in order to eliminate it (which
might be close to impossible if you wish to continue to run
applications), you will need to discover what is causing the problem
in the first case (which is a whole other discussion).

 You can actually just hold down the power button, there's no need to
hold both home and power buttons at the same time.

This also gives you the option for silent mode so you don't have to go
to settings to select it.

Mike, good advice on identifying the leaking application.

 I notice this behavior when I have more than 2 or 3 browser windows open.

To: Android-x86 <>

The Android-x86 project is glad to announce a new daily build
20090916 for public testing. A live cd iso and usb image are
available from our site:


Build 20090916 is Android 1.6 (Donut) based. In addition to the
features available in previous release, the new build contains

   * Ethernet status tracker. You can configure ethernet to
     DHCP or static IP via GUI.
   * Proxy Setting.
   * Adjustable Alarm Clock volume.
   * Video Player.
   * OpenIntents File Manager.
   * AndAppStore client for application installation.
   * RockOn For Android.
   * Better mouse cursor.
   * More sample applications.
   * A lot of bug fixes. Wifi is more stable.
     Application downloading works.

As Google just released the Android SDK 1.6, Android-x86 build
20090916 may be the first available platform for the application
developers to test new features of Android 1.6
(except the emulator).

We also add a new document to describe how to add
application to Android-x86. See
