Default NoLed?

Hello everyone. I just bought the samsung galaxy wonder (i8150) a little over a week ago - my first android phone! I'm loving it so far but there's just a tiny problem and i thought of clearing it up with the experts here.

So i installed this app noled and it's been working great for a few days then just a couple days ago, when i tried to wake my phone up with the home button (without any noled notifications), the screen went blank/black. However the backlight (menu & back), volume & power buttons were all working fine. I could hear the sounds when i tried the volume buttons. I also tried calling myself but the screen was still black that i can't see anything but i could receive calls fine and the ringtone was working. I rebooted the phone by holding down the power keys and the the problem didn't occur again and everything worked fine, so it was a one-time occurence, so far. I'm just worried that the problem might come back.

So i guess i want to know, if noled app could cause these black screen problems? It's my main suspect because there's a noled setting of 'disable touch screen (if your screen is sometimes not responsive)', just to allay my concerns that it's not the phone itself causing the problem.

Thanks in advance

Or is it a problem with the phone itself? Anyone?

This happens on my Captivate every once in a while. Kind of a pain, and I always have to do a battery pull to fix it. Not as annoying as the phone rebooting itself mid-phone call, or calls going straight to voice mail.

I've never used noled, so it's probably not the app. Either a Samsung thing, or an Android thing.

I doubt that it's a phone problem. It sounds to me like you are either running a task killer, or the app needs to be installed with system permissions and is not properly designed to do so (and thus is killed off by Android's built-in memory management).

Thank you for your inputs

The only apps I could think of which may cause the problem are "app lock" and noled since they kinda interfere with the 'normal' phone operation if you know what i mean. Other than those 2 apps, i only have things like ebuddy, whatsapp, you know those. I don't think im running any task killer apps except task manager which comes with the phone? Coming from a leap of faith after being tired of Nokia phones with it's multitude of problems (tired of the repairs ) i was hoping that android will bring good things from now on. Well i'm still keeping my fingers crossed that its somehow a short circuit of something that cause that one-time screen blackout (as yet ).

If the problems occurs again i'll uninstall noled since its my chief suspect and post updates. I hope all is well from now on.
