    My stock Sony Xperia Z2 keeps giving me "recommendations": about apps that haven't been used in a long time. For example, "SoundCloud hefur ekki veri

    Usually that sort of behaviour is from a "disk cleaner" application. I've only ever seen it on a PC though. Have you any "clean up" apps , "registry cleaners" etc installed? I can't see this being the phone itself.

    Hi Nafnlaus, and welcome to AF :)

    Do the recommendations about unused apps appear as standard notifications - that is, do they show up in the notification pulldown? If so, you should be able to long-press on the notification and then select "App Info" to see what app is generating the notifications. :thumbup:

    Good luck, and let us know if that helps :)

    No, I have not installed any sort of "disk cleaner" apps, and see none on my system.

    Thanks, codesplice - yes they do and I'll give that a try next time.

    Do you have Stamina Mode enabled in Settings/Power management? I believe that's what generates these warnings.

    No, I do not.

    I just did the "long click" thing recommended before. The program it says did this is "St

    I should ad, the logo for the thing it says is giving those alerts looks like a blueprint-style drawing of a smartphone. It's got a gigantic list of permissions. One is "com.sonymobile.softreset.permission.RECEIVE_SOFTRESET" so perhaps it's a sony thing? There's a couple other sony references - com.sonyerickson.permission.IDD, Nota ("Use") Sony Enterprise API, Notkun ("Usage of") Walkman, etc.

    So far I have not found it. :

    Nice job tracking the culprit down. For those with English-language handsets, that's Eco Mode settings.

    I'll move this to the Xperia Z2 sub-forum, as it may prove very helpful to other users of the device.

    Okay, I don't know if I just caused it with that change or whether it's just a coincidence with some sort of background update, but something brand new and even more annoying just started. I keep getting these notifications when I press the power button to turn on the screen - I have to "swipe to dismiss" the notification (for example, something from Facebook) before I can actually then swipe a second time to use my phone.

    How can I shut this off? :

    Aaaaand... I'm still getting those previous "unused program" warnings. Ugh. :(

    I've never received such a notification. Could it be carrier specific?

    I doubt the FB ones are carrier specific, but the unused app ones might be, and they might be because my new phone is newer than my last.

    I think both changes have been going well. I haven't gotten any new FB notifications. I got one unused app notice since then, but I think it was about a different one than the ones I got last time.

    Oh ok it may be sorted then.

    I'm not a Facebook user so I've never had notifications from it :D
