You can get away without zapping the PRAM if you don't have any problems. Rebuilding the desktop should be done every time you freeze up. Beyond that, I've heard once a month is good. Batteries should only be changed when they go bad. The date/clock not holding it's settings is the big clue that you're ready for a new one.
