HTC Desire :: Keeps Shutting Off Or Going In Sleep Mode?
Sep 29, 2010
I just bought the phone, and have been charging it for a half hour or so, and it keeps shutting off(or going in sleep mode) while I am trying to set it up.
My first thought is that it needs to charge; I admit, I barely let it charge right out of the box because I am so anxious to use it. Is that the issue? I assumed that even if the batter is at 5-10%, shouldn't it work without issue if it is plugged in to the wall and charging? I will let it charge another hour or so, but I just cannot wait to get my hands on it.
I apologize if these topics were already covered in previous threads.I wasn't able to find anything related in my searches. Auto-rotation for keyboard when answering a text message received in sleep mode does not work. If I actively send a text when phone is already awake, keyboard rotates with no problem but when I go to reply to a text that I received while phone is in sleep mode, the keyboard does not rotate. Is this the norm?I am also experiencing a delay when the I wake the phone. After unlocking the phone, I used to go straight to my home page, now I get a "loading" message which takes several seconds. Is this due to the number of apps I have loaded? Is it possibly due to number of photo frames I have on my home screen or the complexity of the wallpaper?
I have just got my HTC desire. And i cant stand that i have to press the power button to get out of sleep mode to show the lock screen. wish i could just press menu/home or any of the buttons but the power one right at the top. I only say this as i swear my htc tattoo unlocked in this way. if not this could get quite annoying. So is there anyway to change this. I have tried looking through settings but i have a bad feeling you cant change it.
I installed juice defender this morning then deciding i didnt want it i uninstalled it, since then my wifi keeps going into sleep mode after about 15 mins which i dont want. before i installed juice defender it just stayed on all the time so i got notifications etc. ive reinstalled juice defender and disabled all its features as far as im aware but wifi is still going into sleep mode. what can i do to get my wifi back on all the time.
I want to use the Smart Alarm Clock (same as the Sleep Cycle alarm clock for iPhone), but my Desire goes into sleep mode automatically. Can only pick a time between 15 sec to 30 min. The Smart Alarm Clock doesn't work properly because it requires that the screen is on during the entire night. Is there an application or something else than can disable the sleep mode when I want it?
i just got a htc desire 5days ago i moved over from a iPhone 3G. I have a big problem with it. Battery lasts for about 4-5h i have read forums and googeld for 2 days now.So far i changed my Background to a black one i made wifi turn off after 15min no Bluetooth etc.I think the problem is that my phone never goes in to sleep mode.when i go setting > about phone > battery the up time and awake time is the same.I downloaded advance task killer but the only program i can see running is Smart Keyboard Pro and Amazon. I kill amazon and it stays dead for sometime i cant kill smart keyboard pro it restarts it self straight away.I have had the phone on charge for about 6h now and the battery seams stuck half way and don't relay increase or its increasing very slowly.
I took my phone out of sleep mode to respond to a text message, only to find I couldn't get the keyboard into landscape mode. I then found that the trackball wasn't working, and the phone seemed as if it was moving through puddy. When I tried putting it to sleep, the screen would dim but not go black. I eventually had to remove the battery to resolve the issue. The next day, the same thing happened.
Both times, the issue happened at around 8 o'clock. I thought thru what apps I had downloaded recently, and looked through Astrid To-Do. I found it had scheduled back-ups at 8 o'clock. I turned that off, hoping that it would fix my problems. The next day, at 8 o'clock, my phone randomly restarted. That was all. No overheating, no hanging, and it booted up just fine. The next day, it rebooted again, but I don't know if it was around 8 o'clock. Today, just about an hour ago at 2:30, it rebooted again, with no overheating or any other problems.
I'm at a loss about what could be causing this. I uninstalled Astrid To-Do app completely now, but I'll have to wait to make sure that fixed anything. I have about 7 days left before my 30 day return policy kicks in, but I moved to Boston from Iowa to go to college, and I would have to mail it back, which I would prefer not to do (cost and time without a phone being the major issues).
I'm running: Firmware 2.1-update1 Baseband version 2.05.10.06.29 Kernel version 2.6.29-e9066436
I want to use this phone as a digital camera replacement. However when I turn on tehcamera, the power button turns into a "lock" button. There's no way to turn off the screen. So first I have to hit the home key. Then it takes about 8 seconds for the camera to disable before it returns to the home screen.Only then can I shut the phone using the power key. Then if I want to use the camera,I have to turn on the screen and relaunch the camera app.This feels completely wrong to me and makes it hard to use as a pure digital camera.
I just got an evo a couple weeks ago. I love the phone, but after I downloaded the OTA, it won't go into sleep mode. I've turn off all the syncing, tried task killers, tried stopping google talk, the calender, everything I have read in forums.I am thinking my only choice may be to root, but I wanted to see if anyone else had this problem and if anyone actually got it fixed.I really don't want to risk bricking my phone if I don't have to..
So, I have left my almost fully charged Evo on my nightstand the past couple of nights without plugging it in, and when I wake up in the morning, my battery is almost fully drained. One night I did have the 4G on, but the other night I did not. Is there some sort of setting or sleep mode so it doesnt drain the battery when I am asleep?
As the phone sits idle, the screen goes black. In order to use the phone again you must hit the power button, then slide down on the screen or hit menu. Is there anyway to remove the phone from sleep other than hitting the power button? I find this incredibly annoying that I can't just tap the screen then slide down. Are there any other options for removing it from sleep mode and if so where would I change it?
Over the last week or so I've been obsessed with trying to get my hero into sleep mode, in order to save battery. For those who don't know about this, there are many threads around the net telling of a fix for the messages bug, which prevents the phone entering sleep. It's supposed to reduce CPU usage, thus saving battery. Now, I've followed the methods of many people who claim to have done this successfully, down to a tee, but for the life of me, I can't get it to work. For some reason my awake time is always at 100%. It's now at the pont of driving me mad, and I'm just wondering if anyone else has tried and failed to do the fix. If anyone needs background info on this problem, I'll post a link up later, as I'm sending this via my phone at the minute.
Recently moved from a very old Nokia into the 21st century and got a hero last week. Of course i cant stop playing with it and love it, but i may have altered some settings which i wonder if anyone can help me with;before, when the phone was on and i pressed the power button once, it went into sleep mode. Now it doesn't. Any ideas why?the alarm on the clock is silent. Obviously a bit of a problem in the mornings! Any idea why?
I like being able to listen to music as I'm falling asleep never having to shut it off later.Is there like some way to enable like a way for my Android phone to shut itself off at like a specific time?
I'm developping a LiveWallpaper on Android 2.1. This application must download an image every fifteen minutes and draw it on the screen. Everything works except when the phone is in sleep mode. Do you think it is possible to run an application like this when the phone is in sleep mode? And if yes how?
I have a smartq t20 tablet (great cheap tablet!) running ICS, my question is, when I leave wifi on all the time, what happens when the tablet goes to sleep (not awake according to the battery details)?I can leave a download running and it would continue when the screen is off, does this mean my tablet is never going into deep sleep? Or is that unrelated?
I know the wifi itself drains more battery when left on even if it isn't being utilized but I was wondering about the CPU side of it.
i have the moment and pressing the red hang up button will turn the screen on when its in sleep mode, but when i press it again to turn the screen off it wont, it has to time out. now the button still works to end calls and if i press and hold it will bring up the shut down window but like i said it wont just turn the screen off i have to wait for it to time out each time. is this a hardware problem or what is wrong.
I was wondering if any1 could help me understand sleep mode and how when it activates, as I'm not 100% convinced when my phone screen is off its in sleep mode.As far as the battery Sticy is concerned, I've been using handcent SMS for well over a month now, as well as disabled notifications in the original SMS program. Although the original program starts in the background when I get an SMS, which I noticed today when sending a test message to myself to make sure that handcent was defualt. It doesn't display a window or any other info.I don't use bluetooth, so I leave that off, as well as GPS unless I"m using google maps or something. Wifi is also a situational thing as well. I leave the Google Sync and mobile data on almost all the time, as I luv these features of the phone. I set disabled the auto backlight and set it to a Low comfortable level. After playing with this, I noticed that the phone made to audible notification noises about 10-20 seconds after the phone shut off, but not always. Is this the phone entering sleep mode? Or is this an app, if it is I get nothing on any screen say it was when I immediately turn screen back on.
I have a app that needs to run a command even if the phone goes to sleep. I have it running as a service but it runs randomly when. Is there a way to have the service run even when the phone is sleeping.
I've noticed when the phone goes into standby mode (press the right power button), the 3G eventually turns off. Is there a way to prevent that from happening? I'm assuming I can't get any notifications (i.e. Instant Messenger clients, Google Voice, etc.) while the 3G is off, but not sure. I'm also assuming 3G goes into sleep mode, as when I power the phone up I don't see the 3G icon (is that assumption correct?).
I'm trying to find some official android documentation that discusses sleep mode, with a focus on issues that might be of relevance to app developers. For example, things like:
1. What causes a device to enter / exit sleep mode? 2. How are running processes impacted when the device enters sleep mode? (I believe they continue to exist, but don't execute because cpu activity is suspended. When the device wakes up execution picks up where it left off?)
There is some good info in the API docs for PowerManager and WakeLock, but nothing there that explicitly states what I have assumed in point 2 above. Are the above issues (and any other relevant issues) documented anywhere?
It seems something changed in GingerBread release that changes either how phone communicates with PC or whatever, but if you plug it into PC that runs Windows 7 OS and then put PC in sleep mode, the phone will still show charging icon, but will rapidly discharge.
I've noticed this on Atrix 4G, when it had Froyo 2.2 it would stay 100% charged overnight, but once it got updated to GB 2.3, I can't leave it connected to PC anymore, by the morning it's completely dead. (by the way it can last at least 12 hours if unplugged and laying on table)
Unfortunately Atrix 4G is the only phone I have that can get Froyo to confirm this, but all others phones I've tried so far all have GB 2.3.x and all suffer the same issue.
I'm really not "using" my Android S3 phone all day long, it gets frustrating when the bettery runs at 30% at 2pm, without any real use.
So the concept would be:
1) either a "ROM" of Android, which would be seriously minimal - like the device is not a smartphone - so only wake up on incoming call or text message
2) or an app, which does the same thing - suspends the phone completely, and wakes it up only on the incoming call or text message
I was just curious - does something like this exist? I don't care about apps, notifications, wifi or sync, I was thinking more along the lines of would it be possible to use your smartphone like a typical "cell phone", and when you need other apps or full features (GPS navigation with maps, or Shazam, or whatever it is you need) - you just "reboot" or do a quick switch to "full Android" mode, and use those features.
I feel that the battery life should be at least 5 days in that mode, with light usage?
