6.Word of advice is to -a)turn off auto sync 
b)use only a single home replacement app,f you are using multiple like launcher pro ,adw with the 
default launcher,then use home manager(free from market)and then kill the other 
running home launchers
c)and also use a very light on resources home screen setup,like the one that i use(the launcher is 
launcher pro)(the screenshots in the attachment)
