Auto-Sync keeps going off
the Auto Sync check box on my Samsung Captivate in GB keeps unchecking itself at random times. Settings - Accounts and Sync - Auto Sync. I set it to Auto Sync and and the green check mark is there, the Background Data is also checked and all my apps under manage Accounts are all green. A while later I go in and the Auto sync check mark is off and all my accounts aren't syncing. the background data check mark remains. I read about having to clear your gmail data and cache. Did that but the problem returned.
The other strange thing is that I have had GB on this phone for a while and just did a reset and since then have had this issue.
Any one else see this?
Looks like this problem was not a real issue after all! I use an app called Profile Scheduler where you can have settings for different times of the day. I have one for at work where it turns off notifications and ringer and then another one for after work where I turn sound on, etc... Well in each of the profiles there was a setting to turn of Auto Sync each time a new profile started. So what I thought was random was actually not and as soon as I set Auto Sync to on for each of my profiles the issue went away.
BTW - Profile Scheduler is an excellent app once you figure out how to set it up!
