Android :: How To Close / Shut Down Web Browser?

Nov 15, 2009

When I use the default web browser and get finished I can find no where to close it. I just hit the home button to get out of it, but I am sure that leaves it running. So, how do you close out of it and shut it down?

HTC Droid Eris :: Stock Browser Force Close With 2.1?

Jun 21, 2010

Sometimes, after the phone has been in sleep mode for awhile, when I hit the power button to wake it back up and then the menu button (or swipe) to open the screen, I get that circular bar pattern followed by what look like the browser trying to launch. The screen is white, with a white address bar area, too. Then that screen goes back to the circular bar pattern, followed by the white browser screen again, after which it just closes. Very odd. Doesn't do it all the time. Seems to be random. And after a hard reset, sometimes the first time or two I use the browser, it just force closes on me. Again, doesn't do it all the time. (At first I thought I accidentally hit the home button, or something, but I didn't.)

Android :: Close Browser And User Back To App Programatically?

May 12, 2010

I need to launch the Browser from my application (cannot do the WebView - it has to be browser), and once I'm done with the browser, is there a way to close the Browser and the user back to the application programatically?

The problem is that user will probably press back or home keys to get out of the browser - back key will not work, and home key will put Browser and my app in the background.

I hopped that a button in the HTML displayed would close the browser but it seems like the Android seems to ignore that. Can anyone help?

Android :: Force Browser Activity To Close After Passing Control

Sep 21, 2009

So I read through the SDK docs and I thought that calling a new activity(browser) as part of a task (myTask) will mean that activity* (browser) will close when a user closes the task (myTask) But I am left with a browser window.

Here is my scenario (in sudo code);

CODE:..........

Question 1: What is the cleanest way to ensure that when a user closes my app, any outside activities called will be closed to.

Question 2: Does a callback URl start a new Task, or use one in the stack if available?

Motorola Droid :: Way To Close Out Browser / It Doesn't Continue Sucking Battery Dry

Jan 12, 2010

Ok, I have had a Motorola Droid since they released the phone and my battery has been great. I could charge it overnight and take it off the charger around 6:30 am and when I put it back on the charger around 9 - 10 pm at night I would still have anywhere from 50% to higher battery life and this is after very heavy usage.

Beginning a few days ago I noticed that my Droid battery indicator is showing almost completely drained out by 6 pm and I really used my phone lightly yesterday and today. Today and yesterday both, the red LED was blinking and the battery indicator was showing almost completely dead by 6 pm. I pulled up the battery usage on the phone and it is showing the 'browser' as the biggest battery hog for some reason. Today it was showing 81% of the battery usage was from the browser. I hardly, if at all, used the browser today. I also checked the firmware version and it is showing 2.0.1, which I never updated it myself.

Are there any suggestions about why the browser would be draining the battery down so bad, when the browser has not even been used? Is there a way to close out the browser so it doesn't continue sucking the battery dry, besides using an app killer program?I did search the forum and did not see a specific question/answer to my question. I know I had read that some people were seeing battery issues after upgrading to 2.0.1, but I did not upgrade my phone, it must have done it.

Android :: Openly Hostile Rant To Android Developers On Apps That Won't Shut Off Or Stay Shut Off

Jun 28, 2010

What possible reason could there be for you to code your apps so that they switch on in the background when the phone is turned on and use up precious battery life?

Or, why would you code your apps to stay on after I, the user, have hit the back button because I no longer want your app to run?

I mean, REALLY! Yes, I own up to being a newbie Android user, and what I don't know could fill the Library of Congress. Still, this is common sense we're talking about here. I've done some industrial app development and Enter/Exit, On/Off are basic pieces of logic in the main loop of an program in any language.

The only reason that we phone users need task killer apps is because you developers insist on creating apps that don't know when the f**k to turn themselves off.

And, it seems to me like you, the app developers, are one of the main reason why these phones have such crappy battery life. I mean, my Samsung Instinct, as bad as it was, got 18 to 24 hours of life off of one charge. With the Hero, I'm lucky if I can get 10 hours, and that's even with configuring my email download to only three times per day!

This is not hard, people. You code the app to stay off until, I, the user, manually turn it on. AND, you also code it to turn off when I, the user, hit the back button.

Yes, I understand that there are certain apps that it is advantageous to keep running in the background. So, fine, make it so those keep running. BUT, there is no possible reason for apps like Flashlight, or BBC News, or Camera, or SprintTV to have to run all the time in the background!

I am so tempted to just trash the lot of you. If I did, maybe I might not have as much functionality, but my teenager would be able to reach me late in the day because my phone battery would still have juice.

HTC EVO 4G : Lock Screen Does Not Shut Off / Way To Fix?

Jun 16, 2010

So I realized after getting a calendar reminder, the lock screen just stays on until you dismiss it. So then I checked by just turning the EVO without a reminder to see if the lock screen would shut down and the backlight just stays on that way as well.. Can others test this out and see if there screen shuts off or is there a separate setting for the lock screen?

HTC EVO 4G :: Lowest Usable Battery % Before Shut Down?

What is the lowest % my battery will go on the EVO before the phone dies and is unable to power on until charged? I've ran it down to 20% but that isn't even close i'm hoping. My old palm pre would be very close to death and cut-out anywhere under 16%. I'd just like to know in-case I get into an emergency battery saving situation.

My DroidX has been rooted for a couple of days now and I'm loving that new features that I can utilize. However, I didn't check my phone for a couple of hours and when I took it out to send a text I realized that my phone was shut off. Has anybody encountered this same issue? I didn't even have to hold my power button to start it back up. I simply pressed it like I was waking it up and it showed the power up symbol.Update: When starting up, it did not show the Motorola symbol but skipped ahead to the "Droid" sign.

HTC Droid Eris :: Screen Won't Shut Off

Feb 5, 2010

This is a new issue I am having; I've had my Eris since December and had no problems with it. My phone is no longer going to sleep itself. I set the 'Screen Time Out' all the way down to 15 seconds but if I don't hit the end button to manually put it to sleep, it would never sleep. This is really frustrating because since I was used to not having to do that, I'll put it in my pocket without hitting the end button and end up clicking a lot of stuff with my bottom.What is this problem? I've not downloaded any applications as of the last month and I use a task killer every time I put the phone down.

Sprint HTC Hero :: Randomly Shut Itself Off

Oct 26, 2010

I think my Hero is on it's way out. It has decided to randomly shut itself off when it feels like it. I almost made my son late for school today because the alarm didn't go off because apparently the phone was off. It's done this a few times now. So my dilemma is... I'm due for an upgrade on Monday, thing is I don't care for any of the phones out right now. I don't really want to waste and upgrade on a phone I don't really want. I can get a new Hero with insurance for $100 but how many can you get a year cuz I don't really want to use it if it's my last one? I could stick it out or switch back to my berry until something good comes out but I think we would've heard about it by now.

Motorola Droid X :: Shut Down - Completely Unresponsive

Nov 11, 2010

After 10 years of Blackberry I made the switch to a Droid X six days ago.

Twice in the last 6 days my phone has shut down and become completely unresponsive.

The first time was the first time I powered it off. When I attempted to power it on the phone would only show me the Motorola logo and do nothing else.

A battery pull fixed it.

The second time it went dead was as I unhooked it from my computer USB...it's a PC and I "dismounted" the phone manually first...but then...nothing....

A battery pull fixed it again.

So. That's a long way of asking: is two 'dead' experiences in 6 days leading to two battery pulls normal? Should I take it back while I can?

Samsung Moment :: Shut Off And Won't Turn Back On?

Dec 5, 2009

I just traded my Palm Pre for a Samsung Moment today (made the deal off of Craigs List). The phone worked great all afternoon after I got it but 30 minutes ago I pulled it out to enter something into my calendar and it was off. I tried to turn it on but it seems dead.The battery has at least 40% remaining last time I looked and it is charging right now just in case. Anybody else have this happen? Is there some special way to turn this on that I don't know about? I held down the hang up button to turn it on and it is not working.Any ideas? (The Sprint rep at the store where I swapped with the other person said the warranty sticks to where ever the ESID is active - meaning on my account so I do have the warranty for it).

Samsung Behold 2 :: Dxtop Crash And Can't Shut Down

DXTOP crashed on me, I dont know why, because when I turned the phone off it was fine! However, it gives me a black screen when i turn the phone on and says "if your seeing this message DXTOP did not shut down gracefully" It also gives me the following 3 options:

1-Continue using DXTOP
2-Send diagnostic log and launch DXTOP
3-Launch default home interface

None of the 3 option will boot the phone up, they all go to an error message saying DXTOP stopped unexpectedly! I also tried removing the battery, sim and memory cards, plugging them back in and turning the phone off and I get the same problem.

HTC Incredible :: How To Limit / Shut Off Whats Running?

Jun 10, 2010

This should go in the battery section perhaps but I'm in a hurry and wanna easily find it when I get home from work. My battery life is awful. I send txt messages and thats about it and my battery drains in a hurry. On days that I 'play' with the phone and use the hell out of it, it drains in fast forward. I read a couple pages of the battery life post and tips and tricks section and probably need to shut down or limit programs running on my phone. I have the power control widget on screen and most of the time have everything off. If surfing the web or whatever I turn wi-fi on, then off after use. If I do nothing with the phone for awhile then switch to task manager it will pull up a list of a dozen or so things running..thought this thing was supposed to kill these apps. Do I just go into each app or widget and find some options to limit everything? What about juice defender (is that right?)? Does it help? Seems like my phone is on the charger more often than not. I'm going to pick up a new battery but would like to learn how max battery life before I do.

After a little bit of anguish over having to re-customize my phone I decided to do a Factory Data Reset. Still no luck! I spoke with a tech over at VZW and both reps I spoke with were completely baffled. They said since it's an HTC built app that they would have to fix the issue and to give it a couple of days.
