How to keep previous app open after closing the lid
« on: June 13, 2018, 06:11:56 am »
I've noticed that when making notes (e.g. using the Notes app), after closing and re-opening the lid, the device goes to the "home" screen with all the app icons, rather than keeping my app in memory, to let me carry on where I left off.

Is there a way to tell android to re-open the latest app, rather than going to the home screen?

Related to this would be a way to to prevent the app bar from automatically displaying when the device is opened.

Edit: Simply turning the device on and off using Fn+On/Off works as expected (i.e. the app remains open). Closing the lid does something different - I wonder why? I thought the app bar might have something to do with it, so unistalled as a test, but still the "home" screen is displayed when the lid is opened.

Just look at Settings => Gemini Settings.

There is a switch to disable this behavior.
OpenPandora, Jolla C, BQ M10 fHD (ubports), MacBook Pro Retina (mid-2012), Zaurus SL-5500, OpenMoko Freerunner, Geeksphone Keon (ffOS 2.x), a few Raspberries, too many game consoles and Android devices,...

... and soon: Dragonbox Pyra, Librem 5

I don't seem to gave a "Gemini Settings" option. Android version perhaps? I'm running 7.1.1 (I avoided the latest update)

Same here: no Gemini listed in Settings. I have not yet update the firmware.

But, in Settings, type Gemini in the settings search bar to see the Gemini settings mentioned.

Cheers!

In my Settings, it's at the top of the ‘Device’ section, just above ‘Display’.

I think it was there from when my (second-batch) Gemini was delivered.  (Can't check, as I reflashed it.)

The only Gemini option I have is "Gemini Keyboard". My device was from the first production run, so maybe something is missing. I'll wait until the next firmware update and check then.

I just updated to the latest firmware, and can now see the "Gemini Settings" options in Settings. I can now turn off "Go to desktop on open" and the device works as expected.
