What do you mean "it goes on when I get an SMS". Do you mean a Viber text message, or a regular cellular SMS?
If I turn Viber off, it turns on when I get a Viber call or message and receives the call or message. Now, when I receive a SMS, Viber turns itself on too.

About Viber running in the background - this is actually what we recommend our users to do. Viber's battery and data usage when running in the background is negligible, and it improves the user's availability (over shutting the app off completely).
Yup, I never see Viber on the list of apps that use the battery so it mist be negligible. Used to turn it off, since last year (in my area) pretty much no one had it. Now I have 50 contacts on Viber. Leaving it on is no biggie.

Just feedback on what might have changed. I have no problem leaving it on.
