Hi,

I have a service which has the below set to true. If run the service as the owner of the device it runs fine etc and even if I reboot the device service startups and when I put the device to sleep it works.

The problem is that if log in as a user the service doesn't start up automatically, if run the service manually it will start up, but if I put the device to sleep it will not startup again as a user.

#Region Service Attributes
#StartAtBoot: True
#End Region

The version of Android is 6.0.1 and B4A version 6.31.

Just to add that on Android 4.2 this worked fine as admin or as a user.

Any ideas?

thanks
Kal.

Note that it will not work properly on Android 8+ with B4A v6. You need to use B4A v8+ for that (it is related to automatic foreground mode).

The problem is that if log in as a user the service doesn't start up automatically, if run the service manually it will start up
Not sure that I understand. Do you mean that you installed the app while being logged as a different user?
