2 Questions about the Universal

Hi,

I have 2 questions for the Universal owners out there.

1. Does anyone know how to prevent Activesync from running itself in the background when I'm not connected to my PC? I don't do any kind of over the air sync so AS is just sucking up power and RAM by running whenever I enable a data connection.

2. My Exec sometimes turns itself on when I open it, mostly when its only been off for a couple of minutes. Is there anyway to make it always turn on when the lid is opened? I'm guessing the sensor must be there as it comes on sometimes.

Thanks

Xerxes

1 - Do you mean its just running and not doing anything? I've not seen this myself, but it won't be sucking power and if your Universal needs memory it'll close unused apps automatically.

2 - It'll do that when you close the lid without putting it to standby (by tapping the power button on the side) first. If you go to Settings -> Power -> Advanced -> On battery power... Uncheck the tick box. I'd expect your battery life to take a big hit though...

Maybe I'm being overly picky about Activesync. I can only see that it's running because I'm using VBar (excellent by the way) so I can see the running task.

Thanks for "power off" advice, I'll give that a try. If I close the lid the screen turns off so maybe it won't have too much impact on the battery.

I'll report findings.
