There are so many things that can cause this.
On the first Storm models, it is usually a system memory problem (free space below 20mb).
Try closing programs or re-booting, and it should solve some problems.

I suggest an OS upgrade to 5.0 at least.

Well this is what minor things I've done that helps with the memory and it's no where near tedious

Download and install OS + Install MemoryBooster V3.1.0 from S4BB (it's a free app that works wonders in clearing up memory)

At the moment of posting i'm currently at 28.99MB free memory with Facebook + MSN + the other bunch of progs that runs at startup. Last I made a batt pull was more than a day ago.

Though you might also want to do pulls every now and then even if you followed what I suggested.
