    Sorry if this is a stupid question but I have been trying for a while now to "stop" my music playing.

    With the "standard" "music" I can play all the tracks I have imported, see all the tracks, albums, artists and play,pause,shuffle,replay etc BUT I CAN'T FIND OUT HOW TO "STOP" the player.

    Even if I exit the player/library, it still keeps playing.

    I downloaded PowerAmp to see if that was any better and I can't stop that either. It still keeps playing......................

    Have had to force stop the application by going to settings/Applications/Running Applications/ Stop.
    It's the same with or without earphones, when I remove the earphones the music "plays" on the speaker.

    Surely there must be a "Stop" somewhere???????????????????

    Push the pause button, then return to the home screen :D

    Thanks Andrew........................the question seems so stupid now...................
    just thought that the "process" would still be running ------------
    just because I "exited" from it, I guessed it would still be running and using up CPU and Battery etc.
    First time I have ever seen a music player without a "stop" but very grateful that you have enlightened me.........................Thanks a bunch:D

    Nah, Android isnt Windows, dont worry about it running in the background, it'll just be kept in RAM if nothing else needs the RAM

    ElasticNinja,

    "Box" is also a good app for Android. (5Gb free & if you match the requirements 50Gb!)

    I have a 50GB Box account, however it does not have a Linux client (ridiculous in this day and age, eh?). Until they sort that out I'm stuck with Dropbox's lovely client and tight space :p
