    I am guessing there isnt a way to turn whatsapp off but i think its mad that any app cannot be turned off, surely you should be able to if you wish?

    does anyone know if it can be done without having to stop the service every time?

    Huh?
    You want the app stopped but keep the service running?
    I would say that is a classical case of wanting to both have your cake and eat it: it doesn't work like that...

    no what i meant was just how can i turn it off alltogether, so i can just open the app when i want.
    the only way i have found how is by going to running services and stopping it manually, but i dont want to do that everytime.

    can't do it....needs to be running in order to recieve the IM's that come through.
    Im pretty sure it uses push service though, so it really isnt running that much....from what I gather.

    Why do you need to close it? If you close it, you wont get any messages that come through....
