HTC Desire :: Apps Automatically Start Running When Restarting Ph?
Oct 12, 2010
My desire was taking approx 40mins to power down so I installed an task killer to show me what was running in the back round. I was astounded approx 25 apps were continually running in the backround so by killing these apps powering down now only take 15secs max. However, ive become a bit obsessed with this task killer. i keep checking what is running and there are things on there that i have never used such as "you tube", "news" "talk" etc. Could someone please point me in the right direction about how i stop these apps from running without me requesting them too? I know a lot of say task killers are not essential but it has certainly shown me the reason why my desire was running so slowly. Also one more thing, after powering off my phone, when restarting, ALL the apps automatically start running then? Is there a startup menu that can be editted for example?
I got my Xperia P more than a month ago and never had this problem. Now even if i kill all processes using the official or a third-party app, a few minutes later a number of apps are running again in the background and killing my battery.
Got a problem since 2.2 thats bugging me and draining battery life, in 2.1 I'd used Advanced Task Killer to kill all Apps I did'nt want which was fine, more often than not it was just Apps i'd manually started that popped up for killing. Now I find in 2.2 that theres Apps that start running without me even opening them and sometimes its 7-8 Apps at once which cant be good for battery life (and I've noticed a drop in that). Anyone else finding this? Anyway to stop apps Automatically starting once I connect to the Internet for example? as alot of them pop up after I do that, but other times the phones on idle and I select ATK and theres some appeared on it, last thing I want to do is check ATK every 10mines just to save battery.
I'm an iPhone to Android convert, so this is a bit new to me.I downloaded Advanced Task Killer and Advanced Task Manager.I've noticed that after I kill apps, they often restart themselves.Some of the apps that I see running are apps that I've never even started before.I know ATK has an auto kill feature, but I just don't want to kill anything that I need to leave running.So what do I need to leave running?
I notice that when I open Advanced Task Killer I see all kinds of apps I never started up and ran, even if I kill them, the next time I open ATK, after the phone goes to sleep or I go off to something else and come back, there some of them are again.Alarm Clock - and this has an icon (red bell) next to it that is NOT the Alarm Clock apps icon (white face clock) that comes on the phone so kind of curious what the heck it is?Corporate Calendar never use this, never use an Exchange server, don't want it to run.
My phone is telling me my internal storage is nearly full, whereas I have a 4gb microsd card which is not being used. How do I move my applications to the SD card (or how do I have my apps automatically install there in the future)
I have just got a HTC desire recently and am astonished at how short the battery life is. I downloaded the app killer and put the widget on my desktop. When I press it it shows me what apps are running. I clear them all but within minutes of me not touching ny phone they all are running again 8 in total I believe. Amongst the apps are Flickr, peep, footprints....
since upgrading to 2.2 i noticed the amount of background running apps is doubled on my phone, i have advanced task killer and it kills every 30 mins but still it runs everything all the time and its rediculas that muct be killing the battery some awful.
How do I jump between running/open apps? Yesterday I was playing spades and chatting with a friend on google talk. It was terrible. I could not jump between the game and the chat. I had to hit home button, then menu then Google talk, to go back to spades I could hold the down home button and jump back to spades from the popup window. I could not do this with google talk from spades because google talk was not in the recently opened apps popup window.
Since I upgraded my Desire to Froyo I am having trouble closing the apps. I use 'advanced task killer' to kill the apps. But if I go back to the 'advanced task killer' few minutes after closing all the apps, I see all the apps are running again. And also I cant close the default music player with 'advanced task killer'.
Several apps on my epic are always on. After I end them using atk if I wait say 10 minutes they start again. Not all are bloatware some are apps I use from time to time but I don't want them to run all the time.
How do I stop Google play store and play services from running non stop in the background?? I have my location turned off, and privacy guard turned on, but somehow play services and Google maps can get my location? Google play store runs something called "daily hygiene"and all three of these apps restart themselves when I kill them. I don't need play services running, when only the location part of it is running. When I try and disable autostart, receivers, freeze them, use advanced freeze through ROM toolbox, they either revert back instantly, or as soon as the phone reboots.how to get this crap to stop running when it's not being used, and stop getting location, or whatever other things I'm trying to keep private?
I am having service inside a .apk file. I want to automatically start this service when this package is downloaded from the browser and installed. Is it possible to automatically start the service when the .apk file gets installed using some special intents.
I am right now using activity and broadcast recievers to start the service . But however, I would like to start the service automatically when the apk file gets installed with out writting activity or broadcast recievers.
My issue is with Facebook service, it keeps restarting. Each time I go into Running services, it shows it again, When I forcestop it. It will restart 5 minutes later or so. I've gone into facebook and turned off notifications and everything. It's been draining my battery, wondering if you could shed some light? I don't want to use a task killer, had issues with it in the past. I also do not have a facebook widget on any of my scenes
I have an HTC desire with Orange in the UK and up til now it's been pretty fantastic. For the last couple of weeks though, it goes through fazes daily of just switching off mid-use and restarting 5 or 6 times in a row. Sometimes it boots up fully before restarting, sometimes it cuts out mid start-up and goes again....it's rather annoying as I'm sure you can imagine!
I would like my Android application to react to an incoming email from specific address.I've heard that you can do it with incoming SMS, but emails are cheaper. Unfortunately, I am not an expert on Android's "intents",
The last week or so, I've noticed that the GPS on my phone starts trying to locate where I am without a program prompting it to do anything. I had just left the gps on, so it would be ready for maps/etc. Is there a way to tell which program is accessing it? My understanding was that you could leave the gps switched on with the droid x because it would not actually use it, unless a program called for it.
So I just hooked up a aux input on my car stereo and after a couple of days I noticed that when I unplug the headphones it automatically stops playing the music. This is awesome! I just unplug it when i get to work and i don't have to go in and push pause or stop. I love it. Question is... is there an app that will automatically start playing music from the player? So i could just plug it in and have the music start and then stop again when i unplug it. I only use the headphone jack and listen to music in the car.
After attempting to download a few apps (actually a bunch of language apps), ie, after successfully downloaded only 5 of the bunch that I selected on Google Play, my Evo V 4G Virgin crashed and restarted.
After this shutting down and restarting repeated a few times, I uninstalled all new apps and force stopped and disabled Google Play... to no avail.
"Google Play Store is not responding. Would you like to close it?" message pops up twice and then the phone shuts down and restarts again continuously.
Did I get a virus?
These are the apps that downloaded before it started to do this:
Italian Lessons and Flashcards Japanese Lessons + Flashcards Chinese Dictionary+Flashcards Japanese Word a Day Widget Italian Word a Day Widget
BTW, after a couple of months I had the phone, every time the phone is restarted about 2/3 of my apps blank out (ie, replaced by the generic green Android icons) for a few minutes before they are all reloaded up. Why is this happening? Is this normal? Is this related to what's happening?
My Desire is about 2 months old and has began rebooting at random times. At first it only happened if i was on a call whilst charging the phone. The phone cuts out then immediately restarts. The O2 screen appears, then the HTC screen then I have to enter my pin. On some occasions, It happens over and over again before I even get the pin entered. Since then, it has happened when the phone is charging and not being used, as well as when I am on a call, but not charging. The phone gets extremely hot near the bottom. I opened it and removed the battery and it is the phone not the battery that warms up. The battery stays cool. I have restored to factory default and installed no apps, but it still occurs randomly. O2 business said I can only have a re-furbished handset!! how does that work? surely if a product is faulted it should be replaced with a new unit. It was only 6-8 weeks old when i first reported it to them. Also the wall charger seems to get very hot, but only sometimes. Anyone come across anything similar with overheating handset or charger?
how to define a service that launch automatically at startup and / or when installation without having to go through "activity". I look beautiful everywhere, I do found that the functions and BindService but StartService which requires action outside.
I noticed that if i dont use the app to kill running apps after i exit them they are still running in the background is this normal for the Android? I am coming from Pre so not sure if they are killed when exited.
