    Unhappy Music Stops When Phone goes to sleep

    Hey Im having a problem with my music player on my Atrix. When I turn on my music player and let it sleep while I'm doing something else or just to save power within 2-3 mins my music closes and stops playing. Im currently using The Power Amp app or just the default music app. Im thinking its either my task killer that might be set up wrong or the default task killer is in use also. But I started experiencing this problem when I got the software update. If anyone knows anything about this or has a guess I would appreciate it

    Check your auto end list settings Task Manager/Auto end list. If its there deleted from the list. Also check in the music app itself and press settings. In there (if it has it) should be a sleep policy or settings to prevent it from going to sleep.

    Like RobKort said, check your Auto-End list in Task Manager. Just wanted to add that there are other apps that affects music playing such as Gallery, Files and Purchased Media. Keep these and music apps out of the Auto-End list.

    Yah i found another thread that was talking about the "gallery app", "Purchased Media" and one other one and took it off the auto end list. But now I'm wondering if having two task killers might be the problem now :/. I have the default one and i have the Advanced task killer. Im guessing it is bad to have two on at the same time. But thanks Robkort for the sleep timer but I think i still have a App on the auto end list that still effects my music player . Also thanks ROCer for the threads I'm looking through them all see if i can find out the problem with everyones help.

    I would recommend getting rid of any task killer you may have downloaded. Instead, as an alternative that wont actually DRAIN your battery (which task killers are known for - they stop apps, then the apps restart, they kill it again, it restarts again.... etc etc.) Try Titanium Backup Pro - the paid version. It will allow you to freeze apps, which is essentially the same thing as uninstalling them, only they remain on the phone. Completely Isolated. Do a little searching and you can find a list of *SAFE* apps/processes to freeze. I would not recommend freezing anything not on a safe list, as you *might* bork your phone.

    Once again, I have to stress that Titanium Backup is a ROOT APP! It requires ROOT access to be able to do what is being recommended.

    Thanks for the advice folks. It seems to have fixed the problem. I have had the phone for 2 weeks and I kept adding apps to auto end to minimize battery usage, ended up with files, gallery, talk, and a few other media related apps like video in auto end list.
    I'll look for the safe list in here, def required reading for me. So far Car Tunes and Winamp are my fav players. Maybe now I can quit missing the media capabilites of my iPhone 3GS. I hated iTunes quite passionately. The Hotmail app really saved me because the default mail app wouldnt let me select which email account to look at. Does anyone know a really good Vcard editor so I can do pics and edit my contacts on my pc better? CSV is such a crappy means of contact management.
