Default Memory cleaning

Please Login to Remove!

So I had my Bold sitting idle for a few minutes and I got a popup saying memory cleaning was being enabled. It would not let me do anything for a few minutes. After a while the popup went away and all was back to normal. I could not find a reference to memory cleaning (like 4.5) in options...

It's under Options>Security>

It is a way to free up some cached memory. You have the option of changing it from there. It can be set to clean after it has been at idle for x minutes.

Don't believe it frees up cached memory. I think it writes over deleted items so that they are securely deleted. That's why its under the Security options.

I enabled it and it did a nice job freeing up my memory. I'm on .167 and was onle getting around 20 megs of free memory after a reboot. I now am getting 35 megs.
