Treo 700wx 100%CPU Drain?

My Treo 700wx has been experiencing an issue the last few days where it pretty suddenly nearly stops responding or functioning at all. Using HandySwitcher I discovered that "mailwatcher.exe" (I think a function of my Sprint BC push email app) was consuming 100% of CPU. When I terminate it, the Treo functions fine again. After a few hours, it was slow again and I saw that "messagingapp.exe" was now consuming 100%! I have hard reset the Treo a few times (restoring data & apps with Sprite) and everything works fine for about half a day, then the CPU hang up happens again? Any suggestions? Thanks! Paul

A hard reset returns everything to "like new", "factory settings". Unless you're adding the Sprint BC push mail application, then you have another problem.

What other programs/apps do you load?

late,
Coz

maybe you should try hard resetting without sprite restore...it also backs up the problem use pim then load the other programs and stuff manually

Re: Treo 700wx 100%CPU Drain?

Thanks Coz & Spencer...yes I'm afraid I am probably "restoring the problem" with Sprite after the hard reset. But 1, it works like a champ in all functions and apps for most of a day before experiencing again this major CPU grab issue, 2, I am restoring from a date 1 to 2 days before ever experiencing the issue, and 3, restoring with Sprite is so easy I dread trying to put my Treo back the way I want it manually ;-/ Interestingly I am going to get a replacement Treo at Sprint today due to what I think is a totally unrelated issue over the weekend. ( I had attempted to have Sprint forward my unanswered calls to YouMail, and somehow they screwed it up such that I couldnt receive any calls for over 24 hours no mater what they did to try and fix it, so they're pretty sure I have a hardware issue...I doubt thats the problem, but who knows)
My hope was that you might be able to suggest a likely culprit that would result in this specific symptom where an app just takes over all system resources and doesnt let go. I will likely use Sprite to restore to the new Treo, but I will see if I can exclude the Sprint BC app from the restore, and reinstall it from the cab file on the card. Thanks again for your help and any suggestions.
