Make it stop

How do I keep App World from running in the background and taking resources and battery power?

Re: Make it stop

Close it.

 

Menu > Close.

 

Afterwards, hit Switch Application and scroll across and you will not see it present.

That doesn't work, nor does a power cycle on my Storm.

It works for me.

 

Don't power cycle. Pull the battery WHILE powered ON. 

 

Reboot and look at App Switcher again. 

 

Is your AppWorld listed?

Battery pull/soft reset made it stop.

Hey CTC_Tech,

 

Glad to hear you got it working. A hard reset (Battery Pull) is usually always a better option then a soft reset (Alt+Shift+Del)

Re: Re: Re: Make it stop

Hey All,

 

Just to add to my previous post, I neglected to provide the knowledge base article that discusses hard, soft and master resets. Here it is for any who are interested.
