I find that even without programs open, the main memory in use is high. I have other software on my unit such as voice command, battery pack, journal bar in the main memory and space is always low. Is there any way to turnoff programs I don't use in WM5.0 so that I can have more memory to use multiple tasks at the same time.. and still have space to spare????

Try MagicButton, it will properly close programs for you instead of just minimising them. Should free up some memory that way.

Also all those Today plugins use memory. Do you really need the Journal Bar plugin? If not, it is worth saving the memory by removing it.

Now for the main question: are you talking about Storage or Program memory? They are separate: storage is where your data stays, and I recommend not using it to install programs, instead installing those on a memory card. Program is used when applications are running, and in this case, by using MagicButton you should save some of these.

Thanks for your advice. (1) Is the exec processor or memory upgradeable with after market hardware. (2) Any word on WM5 updates to resolve reminder alarm issues or is there fixes (3) Any word on the next generation of the xda exec/i-mate? Cheers

The processor is not upgradeable. I thought the reminder issues found on Windows Mobile 2003 were solved on Windows Mobile 5.0, or so I heard.
