    So I like to listen to a certain 3-hour talk radio program and lately the iheartradio app has been timing out every 5 minutes.

    When I was running ATK I had set it up to ignore iheartradio and had no problem, now I have removed ATK and JuiceDefender to give FroYo control over battery life and memory management, and now iheartradio goes dormant every 5 minutes - kind of a drag to have to keep going in and restarting it.

    Is there a way to setup ForYo's manager to ignore iheartradio and just leave it running?

    Are you using a task killer by chance and have iheartradio on the autokill list...

    Thanks for the suggestion, I am DL'ing TuneIn for a trial right now, see if it works better.

    Still open to any possible fixes for iheartradio as well - got used to it on my BB Storm.

    I removed ATK and JuiceDefender, using no 3rd party task killer/battery management apps - when I did use ATK I had iheartradio on ignore and it never timed out - this is a new issues since I removed ATK and JuiceDefender as part of a battery life experiment.

    What I want to know is how to ensure it is on the ignore list for FroYo's built-in battery/memory manager so that it does not go dormant every 5 minutes if the display is off.

    Are you by chance streaming over WiFi or 3G...there is a setting in the Wireless & Network Settings - Wifi settings - hard menu key - advanced - wifi sleep policy...if the screen times out in 5 minutes then the wifi would shut off as well...maybe that will help ya if ya are using wifi...

    Another good suggestion, but I only use 3G - I did try a setting under Mobile Networks - trying always-on mobile data but I suspect this will impact my battery life which until today has been attrocious - will see if this fixes it though.

    Thanks

    Enabling Always On Mobile Data under Mobile Networks was the ticket - no more drop outs - now to see what the impact is for battery life.
