Service Engine Soon Indicator P0444 and stalling

I did a diag on the car throught the OBDII and received a error code of P0444.

I dont feel that this has anything to do with my car stalling out, but it might since this is my first BMW. It stalls every so often and also bogs alot after and prior to stalling (no check engine or anything). I can hammer the gas pedal and barely move and after about a minute or a bit less the car will start responding as it suppose too. It doesnt happen all the time, but does happen every 2nd or 3rd time I drive the car.

My thoughts that it might be the mass air sensor or some sensor that has to do with fuel management system. I am not sure at all, so any input would be greatly appreciated. I would like to perform the work myself, since I do have experiance working on cars and have access to a lift/mechanic shop (also save me $85+ an hour.).

Thanks in advance for your input

Car Specs:
2001 330ci
76k miles

error code:
P0444 Evaporative Emission Control System Purge Control Valve Circuit Open (Might just be the gas cap)

The CV solenoid might be faulty, thus creating an "open circuit". Nothing to do with your MAF.
