I'm on bbv. 0. 2. 1 and launcherpro and notice my homescreens go blank for a minute or so when i return to the home screens after exiting an app. Is this a bug with bb or launcherpro? Everything disappears on my screens so i know it's not just apps on my sdcard,. Also, launcherpro isn't on my sd card. Thanks

This is the only launcher you can actually fix this. Unless it's not working with froyo. Make sure you have v 0.6 and just go to preferences and enable keep in memory. Every lancher including stock did what you were saying above until now. I haven't used froyo with the new launcher I already went back to BB 1.1 might not be properly working with froyo.

I have the same problem, and "keep in memory" did not help.

Really works exactly as advertised in 2.1. Heck the whole machine seems just about perfect with this one fix. Tried to break it but couldn't kick it out of mem with 8 browse r tabs open and music streaming. Everything else was kicked not tlauncher.

BB1.1 has insane 8 hrs streaming music battery life. Can't live without it. Backup and downgrade. Froyo is very beta. Not worth it.

Ahhhh....Having the same issue with Sweeterhome, sometimes. It's a ram issue, I think, because I've had instances where homescreens don't go blank after closing an app (soft FC of home launcher). In other words, my "lighter" home has run fairly smoothly, the beefier one has this issue.

Anyway, encouraging news for me because I'm sure Pete will fix this. Sounds like I'm not the only one increasingly cursing Motorola only putting 256mgs of ram in this thing (WHY WHY WHY!?! must be forced obsolescence).

Mine only did this with the 3d app drawer enabled. It looks great (Smooth! Beautiful!) but I get the problem you described. I am on BB 1.1 as well.

Seems that Apps2SD causes this as well, maybe before you even run out of memory. http://www.droidforums.net/forum/bugless/53232-launcher-pro.html

I have had the the home screen dissapear with every launcher including Droid stock (no 3d). I think I have a lot of widgets (Lastfm, music, slacker, cubed, pandora, and two picture widgets). And when I have music and lots of browser tabs it pushes homescreen out (whatever I am using at the time, I have used them all).

Only one that has worked for me is v.06 launcher pro with any os, with keep in memory checked.
