Default Startup Programs

Please Login to Remove!

I'm using the MyAlarm program and when I reset the device it does not automatically start up.

Is there a program, or a setting somewhere that will allow me to have specific programs start when the device does?

Thanks!

I totally have the same issue. I want MyAlarm to startup at phone bootup (whether a soft reset or battery pull) and I'd like MobiPocket Reader to not open at startup. Actually going into Mobipocket and clicking Close (the only option; no force shutdown either) doesn't close the app, still only hiding it.

After reading some other posts by JC, I don't think there's an easy solution. Any revelations?

There is no setting within the program itself? For example, I believe Pocket Day has a feature where it will start up on a reboot.

When the device turns on, certain programs are always running which is the phone, e-mail bb messenger and browser which mettle alluded to.


Anything in the profiles you may be able to do?

The super sekrit hidden keystroke to close Mobipocket completely is shift-Q (capital Q) from the Library screen (not reading a book). I browbeat them last year until they gave up that tidbit, they don't seem to understand that people don't want that thing sleeping in the background all the time.

(it's a USB sleeper thread listening for device connections from the desktop to install new eBooks - they fail to realize a lot of us don't use that desktop app and just drag&drop eBooks to our SD card)

While I like and cheer for the program, I don't keep it installed. I don't use my device as an alarm (does that make me lucky?) but if I did MyAlarm would be the tool. Sorry...
