Note that BattClock can monitor the number of processes and also show the started/stopped processes. Maybe that gives a clue or at least you can see something has been killed?
Oh, that sounds interesting. How can I see that information? Is it in a log file? Do I need to turn something on and where should I look to see?
Meanwhile - I told Battclock to show me the number of processes. I'm around 26 running processes (up and down). I started a bunch more apps and when Battclock showed me 32 I saw it would not open any more. It gave me a warning screen with a message that it could not start the next process.
The problem had just started but took me about a week to figure out what happened. During the problem the memory stayed high - over 90mb free and only a few applications were running (1, 2 or 3). I found a patch called AUTOCLOSEPATCH.CAB. I installed that. It had made some changes in the registry under key HKLM\System\OOM. Then the phone went back to normal again.
I could start 10-12 applications at once (I was just testing. I never run so many - my main problem was just that my email program would keep getting stopped). Later I see that the registry keys in HKLM\System\OOM went back to the original numbers but still worked ok. So I think that something went bad and that the patch changed something back. I'm really not sure. I hope it stays good. I see my free program memory level hovers around 40-70 free megabytes now.
Just one of the Windows Mobile quirks I guess. I still continue to have the other problems I mentioned that once in a while the sound turns off and sometimes the accelerometer stops. I called HTC but they were not able to help. So it's RESET - RESET - RESET.
Thank you. I MISS THE BATTCLOCK UPDATES AND ENHANCEMENTS and the dicsussions in this thread.
