    Has anyone come across this issue? today for the first time I plugged in my headphones in my DG2 and started playing music and it stopped after some time. After trying many times I noticed that it stops somewhat on or after 120 second ( 2 mins) I tried to look at some settings but nothing was obvious to me. I think some how the phone goes in sleep mode and stops the song that is playing...
    Any ideas on how to fix this..?

    Yes this did happen to me! Check if any auto-task killers are automatically killing the music app. However, this wasnt working for me, so i did a factory reset and it worked.

    don't have any auto task killer and it just stops.. and I just played will all my settings and still no luck...as long as i am working on my D2G then it keeps playing but as soon as you stop working and let the music play for more than 2 mins it stops at that point....

    I don't want to do a factory reset and loose all settings and personal data..

    any one knows what's killing the music player...?

    If you are using headphones, my guess is the headphone jack is shorting out and killing the music. Wiggle the headphone connection and see if it kills the music.

    Good luck.

    ok I checked task manager and clicked auto end on my music, unchecked it again, and I re-adjusted my screen timeout. not sure if that was the cause but I just tried it and my songs are playing in full without stopping

    Yipee got to the bottom of problem.. thanks Princess!!!

    Thanks for the pointer...I did not go to task manager to look for any settings before... but now when I went there is a list of apps you can add to auto end list.. and in my pursuit to save battery life on this sucker... :) I had added almost every other app into auto-end list and music player was one of them.. and as soon as I have removed it ... it works now... playing not only entire song but song after song... Yipeee it works and rocks!!!!

    Fixed!

    Thanks everybody!

    I have DG-2 and love it but it also has been having this extremely frustrating problem of my favorite apps quitting 2 min after screen time-out.

    After reading messages on this board, I opened the auto-end list and to my great surprise I found it was heavily populated with most of my apps. I don't have a clue how it happened.

    But everything works now!!... Time to re-install and turn back up all apps I deleted/killed trying to fix the problem.

    music player AND gallery

    For future reference, when I took off music from the task manager auto-end list, the music player would still stop. Then finally I read somewhere that you have to take off music AND gallery from the auto-end list, and it worked!

    I know that this post is a little dated and it took me a while to find it but it helped. I was getting ready to buy an app for playing my music due to the same problem as the 2 minute timed shut off. Music was not in the list but gallery was in the shut down list. Removed it from the list and all is good in the world again. Thanks droidforums.

    I have tried all of this but it still happens. Stock Media player, Pandora, whatever...

    I have removed EVERYTHING from my Task Manager Auto-End List. Still...

    I don't have any after market task killers installed either. Very frustrating.

    ALSO, anybody know of a thread that can help with GPS? It takes forever for satellites to pick up my exact location. Never less then 5-10 minutes.

    It's vice versa. To establish the location, the phone needs to connect to the GPS network and download bootstrap data.

    With cold startup, it takes anywhere from 2 to 20 minutes.

    Are you sure you have Assisted GPS (aGPS) enabled in your settings?

    Problem Solved, Thank you.

    Had the same problem, just started today but I suspect it was because I was messing with the auto-end list in my task manager.
    I went to my task manager, unchecked EVERYTHING from the auto-end list, (meaning, nothing kills now when the screen goes black), turned off my phone, took my battery out, put it back in, restarted my phone...(all of my photograhps and music reloaded from my sms card), reset the screen time out from 30 seconds to 1 minute, and opened my music player and played one of my playists, and it played non stop for 20 minutes. :)

    Now, I have no idea which of these things fixed it, but I think, of course, that something was auto-ending thru my task manager, shutting down my music at about 1:23 seconds.
    (This was happening with both the stock music player and my Win-Amp player).

    Anyway, its working correctly now.

    Now I have to be very careful what I put on the auto-end list in my task manager. (stock task manager that came pre installed on my Droid 2 Global).

    Thank you for your input, and your help guys! Problem solved. :icon_ banana:

    You can blame moto for all of this. I haven't seen any of this happen when I was running 4.5.607 as I froze just about all the bloat. Back on CM now though for its flac support. A good 3GB of space now is dedicated to music in .flac :laugh:
    Might wanna make sure these tasks are off your auto-end list: Download Manager(for Gingerbread users), Media Storage, and your music app. If any of these are stopped, your music will cut out.
