Just got this device and when it sits for a while it begins plays music in the background...puts you in mind of being at a Spa...has water sounds to it. It is the same sound just looping over and over.

I have looked at every setting and options and I cannot find the sound source at all. Does not do it all the time but I cannot track where this sound comes from when device sits for a while...

Sounds crazy but anyone have this experience on new 4.4.2 device?

Since you just got this device I take it you're not rooted. Otherwise you could install App Ops via xposed installer and go to Media and control what apps are using Media function of your device (Screenshot is from my Nexus 4 but its the same for the Note, I was too lazy to go get it )

Are you sure there's no alarm apps, or maybe live wallpapers? Or maybe if you side loaded an apk then maybe it could be that. I'm just pulling at straws.

Post a list of installed user apps and I'll take a look and see if anything seems out of the ordinary

Thx...I am rooted and opened Xposed and loaded Apps OPS...so I need wait until sound comes back and look under Media to see if something is there?

This is a nice tool iHeart ready always pop-up in notification area when I have not used for days...wonder can this app kill that as well?

Yeah, you should see it running under media and then you can just block access.

The same applies to the other heart app you were taking about. You can also block notifications in App Ops. There's also another way to do this. Go to settings-apps, select the Heart one and press the 'show notifications button'
