    I can turn off sync docstogo but the real culprit seems to be the built in apps like Contacts, Memos and Tasks and backup. Is there any way I can speed up this process?

    How about forgoing it entirely by using NVbackup and a card reader of some sort? NVbackup on mine takes about a minute.

    Are you still syncing media? Do you need to backup the files? As lorsban said, NVBackup will take care of a lot of it. Have NVBackup copy to an ftp server in case your phone is stolen or lost.

    Don't do backu through hotsync, use NVBackup for that. This will speed your sync time up considerably.

    Are you using a USB port that has sufficient power to sustain sync?

    USB0 on the back of your computer, connected to motherboard or a powered USB 2.0 hub are the best choices.

    I have the Media, Docs to Go and the Backup conduits turned off and it takes about 1 minute to back up via bluetooth connection. About once a month I back up everything and I do it thru USB connection.

    4x daily BackupMan backs up everything to my SD card, but I like having the info on my desktop (Datebook and SplashMoney) so Hotsync is necessary.

    My suggestion is to NOT rely upon using an Internet based backup device as your soul buddy, 'cause if you are in an area with a weak signal, you just might not be able to make the backup or restore. A card based solution is by far the preferred method and of course, a standard backup is occasionally needed should the card have a heart attack.
