    One you can get is called
    hyper-cache

    but the best thing is to deactivate any plugins that you are not using and just activate them when you are using them

    Get FF, Get the firebug plugin, find out what is slowing yer page up, fix the problem....add hyper-cache as suggested [super cache is another suggested one, but I prefer hyper cache myself as well]

    I second Shylesson's suggestion. You might have a bad plugin installed and Firebug can help you figure out what it is. Or maybe some bad code or a call for a file that doesn't exist for some reason.

    Just install the plugin, go to the Net tab, enable all the check boxes there and apply settings. The page will refresh and show you how long various parts of the page are taking to load.

    Then you can figure out which ones are taking the longest and fix them.
