comment Preventing certain WAKELOCKS (NlpCollectorWakeLock, NlpWakeLock) with shell? (e.g. pm command)
Not sure if you're in the right tracks with your attempt. Apps aquire wakelocks for a reason (well, at least that's the idea behind). Trouble is not them aquiring them, but those wakelocks sometimes not being released – which you cannot overcome by that. Your outcome would more likely be several apps/services stopping to work correctly, acting erraneously, or causing other errors.

comment Root android lg ms690 version 2.2.1
@bmdixon Ooops? In that case you're correct, but rather should link to that question with your VTC :) Found no "real proof", but GSMArena lists the M+ as "MS-695", which is a good indicator. // EVA: Can you confirm your device being the "Optimus M"?

comment Root android lg ms690 version 2.2.1
towelroot by geohot claims to root pretty any version of Android. I didn't try it myself, but it's worth a try. Please report back when tried whether it was successful, so I make it an answer ;)

comment Root android lg ms690 version 2.2.1
@bmdixon Please see the rooting tag-wiki, we do not close rooting questions towards that one since 1/2012 (oops!) – but instead permitting exactly one "how-do-I-root-my-X" question per device. The LG MS690 is not yet listed in our index, so I will add it now (you might wish to retract your close-vote ;)

comment how to take a backup of my calender events in galaxy ace duos
Does How to backup the Android calendar file (is there such a file)? (see also the other questions linked/related there) cover your issue? Several more solutions might be found in this list (to sync your calendar with other sources) or here (backup/restore).

Thought as much :) Nevertheless, your answer might help somebody else, though :)

comment Cleaning up Samsung S2 memory
SDCard has nothing to do with the "insufficient memory"/"insufficient storage" error (see the tag-wiki). More likely culprits are tombstones and /data/local. SDMaid is a good pointer, though – as it doesn't only care for the external SDCard. But for pretty much everything else, it needs root…

comment Is it normal that android studio is “heavier” and lagger than eclipse?
You're correct this question is not suiting here. It's 1) a Windows issue with Windows software, 2) a development-related issue, 3) a software comparision – nothing of which is on-topic here. You might wish to check with Where can I ask questions that aren't Android Enthusiast questions? to find a suiting place (and right, Stack Overflow is neither; Super User might be for #1). A good habit: Always check the /help/on-topic URL of an SE site before posting on it :)
