    Home Page Icons Disappear

    After using an application, upon return to homescreen, all the app icons are missing and I have to shut down and restart the phone. Does anyone know how to correct this problem?

    I was just going to ask this question too. Sometimes, for me the icons, come back if you wait long enough. Other times, I have to also restart.

    I thought it was Helix so I uninstalled it. But it still does that. I have Droid 2.1 (forced) non-rooted.

    A lot of times, it happens when you press the home button to exit rather than backing out.

    I thought it was lack of memory but I have 76 MB free on internal. I uninstalled all apps that I thought might be questionable such as iMusic or Dolphin, etc.

    Any ideas anyone????? I have already factory reseted once to no avail.

    Just a suggestion, but I suspect that the problems noted in this thread may stem from memory availability issues. If you have not done so recently clear the cache and data from your various apps, especially those like various email clients, messaging apps, news/weather apps, and anything else that leaves lots of "stuff" on your system. This additional data (which is dragged into memory when the app is running) tends to clog up memory.

    On the other hand, this problem is usually associated with sluggishness, not an inability to get an app (like a launcher) to run properly at all. If clearing cache and data doesn't solve your problem, it's probably time for a factory reset.

    BTW, a very nice app that identifies apps with excessive data and cache is

    Quick App Clean Cache - Android app on AppBrain

    Costs about a buck and is very useful for keeping stuff cleaned up.

    This STILL happens to me.. VERY annoying. It's happening as I write this using the latest version of LP.

    Did anyone ever find a solution to the icons disappearing from the home page? My droid pro just started doing this. It happens when I turn the screen off and turn it back on. The only way to get the icons back on the screen is to shut down and restart.
