If you want it to, it does. But i have minimize it (if you press the home button, it won't stop like other applications, it will just move in the notification area) and then locked the screen. The screen stays locked, but when you will open it and raise iGo it will have the updated position.

And yes, i also think that it is a power saving feature and all depends on how the software uses the hardware. I don't believe it is a hardware fault.
