What don't I know about Standby Mode for BB Curve 8530?

Hi --- I know you can use the mute button to go into standby.  When you press mute again it turns standby off.  Instead of starting at the home screen, my Curve opens the media folder when coming out of standby.  How do I control what is the default screen when coming out of standby?

Are you sure the Media Player isn't running in the background on the device?


Well, the mute button controls the media player, so why shouldn't it open the media player Smiley Wink

There's several posted here inthe 8500 about the standby function for this device.
