    It sounds like you have daydream on with your gallery or wallpaper? Or you have gallery on to play slideshow. Just turn them both off.

    Are you running the stock launcher? Some custom launchers may have this functionality. Also, there are apps that can do this, like this one https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...llpaperChanger You're positive you haven't installed anything of this sort?

    I am not sure that there is anything in stock Android 4.4.2 which will let you randomly change wallpaper at each power off/on cycle.

    You might also have downloaded a Live wallpaper at some point. Go to Settings -> Display -> Wallpaper and choose something from any of the choices other than the Live wallpapers group.

    I currently ONLY have 2 wallpapers downloaded from ZEDGE and they're both not LIVE wallpapers. So IDK how to fix this myself.

    I'm changing wallpapers with each off/on cycle, too. I cut daydream off and it had no effect........still changed wallpapers. Is there a switch that enables slideshow perpetually other than the one for wallpapers in the gallery? I guess that's the next step?

    You might have nailed it. I uninstalled Zedge, ran the off/on cycle twice, and did not have any wallpaper changes. Thanks.

    If it is, there isn't a way to stop it though. I looked in there settings and nothing to check or uncheck on this type of issue...

    Hey I discovered this happening as well on my Note 3 after getting 4.4.2. I did as a earlier post said turn off Daydream. Kept my wallpaper as I wanted it!! tested after 5 reboots still there where it previously changed every reboot!!! Now wondering if it comes back if I turn Daydream back on.....
