    My highly touted Ultra has an annoying habit of randomly opening and playing music files. Tried: Power cycling device, installing ATK, uninstalling DoubleTwist and going back to native player.
    I routinely hit the power button to bring up lock screen when I'm done with whatever. No help.
    Any suggestions would be appreciated! If nothing else works, I'll do a factory reset.

    Load it in Safe Mode. If it stops then you know you have a buggy app causing the problem.

    Also... maybe check the Assist function. Driving. Make sure the "Resume Music Play" is unchecked.

    And for the love of God, uninstall ATK :)

    Did you find a fix? My wife's Ultra is having the same issue.

    No, I've never tried that. How do I boot into safe mode and what will it tell me?

    Hit Power button. When menu appears long press on Power off then hit OK.

    You return to normal by doing a normal reboot.

    If the problem stops while in Safe Mode then it is caused by an app that you (she) added.
