HTC Droid Eris :: Programs Running Itself On Phone

Sep 14, 2010

I am constantly finding programs running on my phone, regardless of what I've used. For instance, "Easy tether", which I never use while in town, would come up as "running". "Where's my droid", which have not used since installing 2 months ago... or "Voice dialer? What makes things run, when they haven't been used?

HTC Droid Eris : Prevent Programs From Running

Jul 1, 2010

Is there an app out there that will not just stop a program from starting up but from running at all? I have to continually kill progs like Footprints (or something), Amazon mp3 store, etc. I'd like to streamline the phone and only have programs running that are essential.

Motorola Droid :: Stop Programs From Loading

Jan 29, 2010

I have read quite a bit on task killers and decided that I didn't want to use them, but a friend of mine who has a G1 brought up an interesting point. He told me to look at the programs that are currently running. So I did and saw that there were about 7 that were running in the background that I NEVER use. I understand that you don't want to be constantly shutting down programs you use because it will make your phone run slower (can't access them as quickly). But what about programs I never use? I only use the GMAIL ap, so I don't need the email or the corporate email running. I don't have virtual voice mail, so I don't need that... and so on. Right now, rooting is beyond me, so I'm not going to do that. Are there any other options other than rooting to keep these from loading?

Motorola Droid :: So Many Background Programs Running?

Nov 7, 2009

It seems like whenever I play around on the phone for a bit and the go to close my apps with TaskPanel the following are always running even though I didn't touch them:

Alarm Clock
Corporate Calendar
Calendar
Settings
Messaging (even though I have not used it at all)
and one other that isn't showing up right now but was something like mobile.? or

Some of these I don't care if they're running (I assume the Calendar is running since I need it to run for my Google calendar widget to work), but why is Alarm Clock and Corporate calendar always running? Is there a way to turn these off?

Motorola Droid X :: Stop Version Web Site From Opening After Plugging In Phone?

Aug 3, 2010

I've been plugging in my DroidX to my computer to do different things (root, transfer files, etc). Whenever I do, it causes the web browser to automatically open and start playing an annoying "helpful video" from the Verizon site. Does anyone know how to make it stop loading? Obviously I can close it out, but it is really annoying. I have root, so I can access the internal memory and delete the offending file. I just don't know which one to remove.

HTC EVO 4G : Stop Persistent Programs

Oct 22, 2010

How do you stop persistent programs,

for instance:
when i goto manage applications -> running services, fring is always running even if i don't run the app.

I will force stop the app, then minutes later, it will be back there again. that's just one of them.

Amazon mp3 also does the same thing. it still comes back even if i use titanium backup to freeze the app.

Motorola Droid :: Phone Randomly Start Silencing Itself / Stop It?

Mar 29, 2010

So my Droid has decided to randomly start silencing itself. I can't figure out why and when I called VZW they had me do a hard reset...this did not solve the problem. I have apps Audio Manager and Screen Lock...I'm not sure if either of those could be a problem. I also use beautiful widget toggles. I have looked at the settings and that doesn't seem to be the problem.

HTC EVO 4G : Multiple Programs Running In Background

Jun 4, 2010

It seems I have multiple programs that will start on their own and run in the background. The main ones are mp3 store, voicemail, sprint nav, sprint tv and qik. I haven't even ran those programs yet, but they're still starting up.

I went so far as to download ATK and kill them...only to see them running again 5 minutes later. I tried to put all the settings the same as what I had on my hero, but these running in the background are driving me nuts for some reason.

General :: Stop Android From Closing Programs On Its Own?

Apr 12, 2012

As many of you know, back in October I had to make an emergency switch from Windows Mobile to Android. As you've all read in my posts, it has been a very "mixed" experience with both some impressive and downright pathetic discoveries, but one of the worst things about it (beside the complete inability to sync) is the way that Android closes your programs whenever it feels like it instead of letting you close them. Sometimes I'll be browsing the internet in Opera Mobile and I'll switch over to the email program briefly to check something, when I hold down the "home" key and pick OM from the list of recently used programs, it starts it all over again, and I know for a fact I didn't choose "exit".

Sometimes I'm glad Android "cleans up" (like if I back out of a program that has no "exit" option) because it saves me the trip to the task manager later, but is there any way I can prevent it from closing stuff I'm actually still using?

HTC Droid Eris :: How To Get Programs Not To Run In Background?

Dec 31, 2009

I notice certain games or applications. I download end up running in the background. Once I open up the "advanced task manager" or a free one I kill all the applications running and I notice over time or an hour the application come back up as running in the background? Any way to kill them any make them not come back? Just trying to get the phone to run smoother.

Also I have handcent SMS and notice that the regular messenger still is running even after I force close it it's still running. I can't un-install the normal messenger. Is there a way to get handcent SMS to be default or make that one run only and have the other one never run in the background?

HTC Hero : Stop Apps From Opening Up When Phone Boots

Dec 8, 2009

The only way I know this is having installed a task manager. There would be no other way of knowing this.
I have about 14 apps downloaded form the market. Not too many, but I was susrprised to see applications like shop savvy and My Backup automatically start up when my phone boots up. Whilst in the apps themselves, there seems to be no way of stopping this behaviour. Why would they do this ? Why is there no kill switch fro these apps natively for android ? It seems there is a lot of chatter about whether or not task managers are good for the platform, or whether we should just let android do it's thing on it's own. I'm really in two minds whether to carry on using a TM or not. It's for reasons such as shop savvy opening up on it's own when I don't want it to that I'm tempted to keep in, if only for my own piece of mind, and the ability to kill apps that don't need to be on. This MUST have a direct correlation with battery usage.

Anyway, I have to say that I've had most platforms, iphone, blackberry, symbian, and Android really does seem to me to be the best one yet. I am extremely happy with my Hero.

Sprint HTC Hero :: OS Running New Programs While Screen Is Off?

Oct 16, 2009

I wasn't able to find anything on this after a cursory search, but it seems like my music player sometimes kicks in when the screen is off and the phone is stowed in my pocket. I can't seem to recreate the behavior predictably by playing with any buttons, though, so I'm not sure what's triggering it.

I have the new HTC Hero on Sprint.

Any ideas what might be causing this behavior, or how I can stop it? It's pretty embarrassing, and I'm nervous to go into a theatre with the phone at all now, even when it is on silent. Even short of the music player, more often the phone will wake from screen-off with some other page up front (not the main home page, but one of the other views like the home page, the ones you get to by flicking right or left from the home page...

Motorola Droid X :: GPS Running Non Stop After Froyo Update

Sep 25, 2010

I've noticed the GPS icon at the top of the screen even when I'm not in a GPS app. It's definitely affecting my battery life. I've rebooted the phone a few times. I used Google Maps last night, but closed it before I went to bed. This morning my battery was really low and the GPS icon was still sitting there. My wife noticed a similar occurrence of GPS running more than expected on her Droid X as well.
