Default Re: Media Player Disappears; Set Restart Point?

I think you need to distinguish between the player app not showing if you use 'switch application' and the 'now playing' or 'podcast playing' disappearing from the menu.

in my experience it is normal for the player to disappear under certain circumstances. In fact, if you launch the player from the BlackBerry podcats app, the player doesn't even show when using 'switch application'. I'm not surprised if it is not showing after the device has locked and then is unlocked. In other words, it may be undesirable for some, but I think it's just the way it is, at least with the native software.

However, in my experience the menu items 'now playing' and 'podcast playing' remain even after the device has locked and been unlocked, until the player is closed by the user. You may not be able to see the open player using 'switch application', but you can bring it to the screen with either of those 'playing' menu items if the player has been left open.
