I don't have a lot on my Bold compared to some friends and I keep it all neat n tidy in folders.
My question is: yesterday I had 40mbs of free space on my device. This morning I have 22. I've added nothing, my browser cahe n history is empty.
I've heard the term "memory leak" on here before. Is this a case?
Most BBs have this issue from one degree to another, a battery pull should bring you back to 40 or more. That's why many BB users, especially power users, do daily battery pulls or use apps like quick pull to restart their devices. It was a ritual that was hard to break when I first got my Droid
As I'm sure you know azstar, the Droid also needs a reboot periodically, just like a pc...keeps it healthy and running smooth.

It maybe that some thing is always running
in that background of all BlackBerrys try
Downloading one of the memory recovery
promgrams either paid or the free ones and
run the program that should fix the problem.
Let me know how it works for you
I would recommend QuickPull, It's free and on the BlackBerry App World. It reboots your device based on your settings.
I set mine to do a "battery pull" 30 mins before I wake up, that way we arent both sluggish in the morning . Hope that helps.
The latest RIM devices with 256MBs, and the latest builds of 5.0 really don't need pulls. I only pull mine when it's time to put in a spare battery OR if things are acting funky. HOWEVER on the S1, and on early 5.0 builds regular pulls were needed.
A quickpull (or softreset), or an actually battery pull really can't hurt your device. It does take a chunk of battery life thou.
