    Are you turning it on from cold or waking it up? Putting it to sleep will not stress the machine as much as constant re-boots.

    Empty all caches,history,cookies etc in Safari.
    De-clutter your desk top.
    Delete as many emails as you can and empty it's Trash
    Empty the MBP's Trash
    Quit all applications by right clicking the icon and actually quitting them.
    Use Applications/Disk Utility/Hard Drive/Repair Disk Permissions
    Shut down
    Reboot.

    Along with the above: make sure you have enough free space. I recommend a minimum of 15% free space on any system partition, although I personally begin seeing slow downs related to nothing but the amount of free space at 30%.
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.

    If it's hanging a lot and constantly showing the spinning beach ball between seemingly mundane tasks it might be worth it to have the hard drive checked out.

    Before you do ANY of the very sensible things suggested above, the FIRST thing you need to do is bring your backups up-to-date. FIRST.
