Nov 5, 2012

I have Nokia 701 with FP2, Whenever I open the default browser or software update, the background apps or open apps like Nokia store, opera mini are closing on their own. When I closed the software update and started to use the opera mini and Nokia store, the Nokia store app is closing on its own. Other problems with fp2 are, camera takes long time to open. Gallery opens but we cannot tap on images, same thing with thumbnail image in the camera sometimes.

BB (RIM) :: Bold 9700 Apps In Background Running

Jun 18, 2010

You know how when you open an application, and just press the hangup / power key, it exits the application from the screen but it still keeps running in the background memory. I have noticed that such applications in the memory can drain the battery real quick. I was wondering if anyway on the phone you can check which applications are currently running in the background memory? If i can find that out, I can just exit all the apps and save my battery life. Let me know if anyone knows a way to do so.

In Lollipop there used to be a section under apps in the settings where you could see what all was currently running in the background. It looks like in Marshmallow this feature has been removed or moved to a different location in the settings. Where it moved to and how to find this in the settings?

Samsung Galaxy S II :: Disable Apps Running In Background?

Jul 17, 2011

I am using Advanced Task Killer which I'm finding really useful. I have an ignore list set and it kills the apps that aren't being used regularly. However, I'm wondering why these apps keep restarting again. The sort of things that keep restarting are Gallery, Messaging, Yahoo! Messenger, Email, Skype, Maps, etc. I'm sure that I'm signed out on all of these apps and have the settings set such that they shouldn't keep restarting/synching. Are there any apps similar to 'msconfig' in Windows where you can tick which things you want to start up and what you don't?

BB Style :: Tell How Many Applications Are Running In The Background

Jun 1, 2011

How can I tell how many applications are running in the background? The Application Switcher always shows at least five applications. Options > Device > Application Management > CPU shows a lot of applications that are using <1% of the CPU, but I don't know if that means that they are actually running. Is there another way to see which applications are running?

IPhone 4s :: IOS 7 - How To Prevent Background Processes From Running

Aug 29, 2014

Ever since I upgraded my iPhone 4S to iOS7, it has basically become a brick. It constantly freezes, and the home button becomes completely inoperable. People have suggested a number of fixes for the home button problem ("calibrating", tightening screws, etc.) but none of the fixes solved the problem. Through trial and error, I've come to realize that the problem is that the phone doesn't have enough computing power and that too much of its RAM gets used up by background processes, causing the phone to freeze.

I have found an app that stops unnecessary background processes currently running, frees up RAM, and lets the phone function properly (Free RAM 1.3). Once I've run this app, the phone functions perfectly.

However, this clean up only happens each time the app is launched (ie: it does not continuously free up RAM). So, I constantly have to run it (and sometimes am not able to because the phone is frozen and the home button won't work).

When it is running, the app displays the background processes that are running. Looking at the list, there are many processes for which I have no need, such as processes related to automatic checking for app updates, processes related to iCloud (which I do not use), etc. Preventing these processes from running in the first place would go a long way in making my phone more useable (being able to return to a previous iOS would be a better option, but Apple won't allow this).

Here is my question: is there a way to prevent unnecessary background processes from running at all?

IPhone :: Weird Battery Usage - Nothing Running In Background

Jul 25, 2010

I'm on my second iPhone 4, since my first one had the yellow screen blobs. The battery was great on my first one, but not so good on this one. I restored the same backup, and even did a settings reset to get rid of anything that may cause an issue.

What's weird is that when I check the usage in Settings > Usage, the standby is correct but the usage is creaping up without me actually using the phone. For example, went to bed last night and usage was around 3 hours and battery level 55%. This morning, it was 3.5 hours and battery was down to 47%. I'd even restarted the phone before going to bed so that nothing was running in the background.

I'm just DFU restoring my phone to see if that helps. And I might delete and re-add my Google Apps Exchange accounts incase there is something going on there.

IPhone :: Running A Task Infinitely Either In Foreground And Background?

May 10, 2012

I have my application supporting the background modes (GPS) , and I can see that location updates are printed regularly in log. I have a NSTimer running which will send the location updates to my server every 1 hr. It is strange that the timer is working for many hours and suddenly it got stopped. I have two questions in my mind which I keep on asking me ,even-though I have read some apple documents. 1 - Is it possible to run a task infinitely either in background / foreground using timers ? if the timers aren't the option , what API I can use to run task infinitely . 2 - If the user have an option to disable Location Services for my app, I am gone . I don't want the user to disable the Location service for my particular app.

Motorola Droid Bionic :: IM Service Constantly Running In Background?

Nov 17, 2011

The IM service is always running in applications. I have never even opened the IM application or set it up. It usually is using up between 3.1 and 3.7 MB in the memory, which isn't a big deal. It is running one process and two services. Any way to disable the IM app from constantly running in the background. I had disabled it in the Task Manager to shut off two minutes after the screen goes off but whenever the phone wakes it turns back on and seemed to make my data issues worse. I can't say for sure that adding it to the auto kill list directly affected the data connection because it may have just been another bad day for the Bionic.
