    First of all I have read some quizes and read the guide about life cycle of activities.
    Perhaps i did not read carefully enough, but the bug i am experiencing is not covered by one of the quizes or explanations.

    Bug description:
    App is started as usual. Smartphone is idle for several hours (for example over night). App is resumed but the layout shown is empty!
    I only use variables defined as service global variables. (except of the buttons and EditText, they are declared in Sub Globals of the activity)
    The following code solves the problem but there is always a notification displayed:

    Sub Service_Create
        nNotify.Icon = 
        nNotify.Light = 
    "Termi Service für Sicherungen""Klicke um Termi zu öffnen", Main)


    End Sub
    I do not want a notification to be displayed however.

    Without that idle time the problem does not occur. For example i kill the process manually but when resuming app activity is loaded correctly.
    I also tested with developer options 'No Background Services' and switched between apps. This was also causing no problems.
    It seems there is a problem caused with the idle time of several hours.

    Any Ideas?

    Thank you Jose and Erel for the fast reply.
    Only the edittext and buttons are stored in sub global. It is no advantage for me to store the values of the edittext or buttons within a KVS. I just want the buttons and textfields to be visible after long idle time, such that the user can start working with app (all over again) after idle time. Correct me if i am wrong, but as far as i know it is sufficient to declare the buttons within Sub Globals. Everytime the Activity.LoadLayout is called it will initialize them again.

    I have seen the video already and there are also some quizes that illustrate that it is a common mistake. My Code looks like this at the start:

    Sub Activity_Create(FirstTime As Boolean)

    Activity.Title = "Schüler Auswahl"

    What are you doing in Activity_Pause and Activity_Resume? Is there anywhere in your code a place where you remove views?

    Activity Pause and Resume look like this:

    Sub Activity_Resume
    End Sub

    Sub Activity_Pause (UserClosed As Boolean)

    End Sub

    Sub RenderLocker
    Dim bmpSettings As Bitmap
    If Starter.UserCode <> "" And Starter.UserCode <> "null" Then
            Starter.BlackLock = 
            Starter.BlackLock = 
    End If

    End Sub

    The problem is somewhere else. That's all that I can say.
