    I'm having a bit of trouble with one app getting kicked out of memory. I currently have three apps locked in but not this one as it is a battery hog when live.

    So my question is, if you lock an app, but you back key all the way out of it, that shuts it off even though it's locked in memory, right? The process stops foreground or background and just dies? Or is it always background if locked?

    I could be wrong, but I thought the purpose of the app locking utility was to keep the built in task manager in Android from auto-killing an app that is in the background so it doesn't get whacked while you're doing something else.........say listening to Pandora while gaming or something. You should still be able to go in with a task killer app and kill it, or use the exit function if the app has one. I use a task killer to shut off stuff I don't want in the background after I'm done with it.......I do NOT let it run automatically though I just kill the app then kill the task killer.
