Re: PB is not multi tasking

On your Playbook, please check the setting at Options > General > Application Behavior and make sure this is set to Default  or SHOWCASE, to allow apps to run in the background.

Re: PB is not multi tasking

How have you got the PB setup to multi-task ?

In Options, General, there are 3 options available. Showcase, Default and Paused.

Set to either Showcase or Default, I've never had any problems with apps running in the background (which is what they should do). If set to paused, then the apps only run when fullscreen
