Default Music Player Apparently stops playing

Anyone else experiencing an issue with the default music player app? Mine stops playing after the screen cuts off. I've got it ignored in task manager. Any ideas what could be causing this?

In addition, I found that leaving my phone sitting in the passenger seat while playing music can make it randomly skip songs. I don't mean to the next song, I mean to the middle of a random song. And when it finishes, it hops back to where it hopped from.

I am having this issue as well. App is ignored in task manager but music stops playing a minute or so after the screen goes to sleep. It's really getting annoying. Thank you in advance for your help.

I thought there might have been some interfering auto killed app, so I unchecked all of them and proceeded to block half each time to find the problem. 0 apps blocked, music worked after screen went off. Half blocked, music still worked. 3/4 blocked, music still works. 7/8 blocked, music still works. Block everything I intended to be blocked the first time around, music still works.

Yeah, I have no freakin idea why my music stopped after playing with the blocking, but it solved itself somehow. Just try soft reset, give it some time.

I also have the same issue. It doesn't appear to happen when I let the screen lock itself, only when I manually hit lock.

After messing with differnt apps being auto ended, I discovered that the gallery app has something to do with the music player. When I removed the gallery app from the auto end list, the problem went away. When I readded it, it came back. Someone else will probably want to check this but it worked for me

What I did is:
Remove music app from the app killer
Go into- manage apps/music player/force close/clear data
Songs will be deleted
Put the songs back, but put them in the- playlist folder

hope it helps.

I think this may be a no hassle temporary solution.

If your music keeps stopping:
Set your timeout to never, manual lock, unlock, set timeout to your normal setting.

So far, I've only tried letting it timeout on its own, but the music doesn't stop anymore.

Is the music on your SD card or internal memory?
