    I only recently discovered the minor miracle that was cache-partition wiping; sped up my year-old device like crazy. But I've found it's not quite as great as I thought b/c I seem to have to do it every 1-2 weeks otherwise my device slows noticeably.

    The entire process of turning it off / holding down buttons / etc (which is how I was instructed to wipe the cache) takes ~5 mins and is annoying. Is it possible to wipe the cache while keeping the device on, via an app or something? Even better, can I schedule this process to run automatically every week or so in the middle of the night?

    No, it can't be done that way. You need to power your phone off and then boot into recovery. You could install a custom recovery but the process to do that is much more complicated than wiping the cache partition the way you already did. Sorry.
