How to fix some mysterious problems.

i noticed that over time(even while locked and sitting) my phone will just keep losing, or using, ram. eventually it will get down to the point of like 15 mb and i try to clear it up, with no avail. then my phone will either crash from being so slow or i can respring and all my ram comes back. But my battery usage definitely sucks when my phone is locked, compared to the previous redsnow semi-tethered jailbreak. Any ideas to resolve this?

One of your tweaks has a memory leak. This could be causing excessive battery drain. You'd need to try uninstalling tweaks until you find the culprit. You could try installing Crash Reporter from Cydia to see if it lists a blame when the crashes occur.
