How to reinvigorate a not-very-old Droid 2?!

My Droid 2, which I bought in August 2010, is beginning to have performance issues. I assume this is partially a planned obsolescence thing, but given that I have to live with the phone for another year-plus, what can I do to improve its quickness, buggy-ness, etc.?

Examples of problems I'm having:
-Phone won't "wake up" when top right button is pressed; or it takes about a minute for the screen to turn on--usually I have to take the battery out and restart the phone to fix this.
-Freezing in the middle of programs, especially the NYT app
-Difficulty finding and connecting to 3G, even in areas where the 3G signal is or should be very strong.
If I were having this problem with my PC, I would defrag the hard drive and run ad-aware, avg, etc. Is there something similar I can do with my Droid?
