I'm experiencing a strange phenomenon that perhaps someone can explain for me.

I use two different home pages that run on Chrome: iGoogle Portal and My Yahoo. Each home page contains 3 news feeds and a calendar. iGoogle Portal contains a clock but My Yahoo does not. My Yahoo contains a real time updated score board while iGoogle Portal does not. Whichever of the two pages I have on my laptop at the time, it runs continuously at a refresh rate of every 10 minutes, all night. 

Here's my problem: If I run My Yahoo for, say 6 hours continuously for example, after that 6 hours my laptop has slowed to a crawl, with new tabs taking upwards of 5 seconds just to respond to the mouse click and show a new tab. Every function has slowed way down. If I run iGoogle Portal for the same amount of time with the same refresh rate this doesn't happen. When on My Yahoo, in order to remedy the situation I first get into the Chrome Settings and manually clear the cache and browsing data. Then I click on Chrome's History Eraser App and run that. Then I click on Ccleaner and run that. After completing the sequence I can open My Yahoo and the speed is back to normal. 

Why does this happen on My Yahoo and not on iGoogle Portal? Is there a way, such as changing a setting, that would prevent it? Your ideas would be appreciated. Thanks.
