    I don't know what to call this or what to title this thread so hear me out:

    I was on my xoom and pulse force closed. I tried opening it again and it wouldn't open. I was going to force stop pulse but my settings wouldn't open. I turned the screen off took a 30 second break hoping it would fix itself but when I tried to turn it on all I got was the bottom status bar.

    I didn't want to spend a few minutes soft resetting it so I cried for a couple seconds and all of a sudden the boot animation played for 2 seconds and then everything was fine.

    Is this a built in way for the system to restart the graphical shell? It isn't a normal soft reset because my xoom is encrypted and would have required a pin

    Basically what I did until I gave up. I was multitasking about 20 apps. To recreate it I would need one force close to trigger a domino effect. Atleast someone else knows what I mean. It's a great feature my phone takes 5 minutes when it automatically soft resets
