    A blank recent apps screen doesn't necessarily mean that you have no apps running--it can just mean you swiped away all of the recent apps. Some apps, when swiped away, won't completely close (like Google Play Music, for example, if it's busy playing a song). If swiping away an app did in fact force close it, it might have restarted automatically--but that doesn't mean it shows up again in Recent Apps. My understanding of the Recent Apps list is that it's composed of apps that you recently opened, not apps that may have been automatically opened in the background by the system. It's not a "running apps" list. That's in Settings>Apps>Running.

    Remember, with Android, there's always going to be some app open in RAM.

    no.

    i have apps running, but the screen will show me "no recent apps", when i tried it again, those apps appear. it has never happened to me before my 4th repair.

    I think you may be referring to the bug that lot of people get with recent apps, I get it too. Sometimes when I go to recent apps it doesn't show the last few apps I've opened, going back to home screen then back to recent apps again will show them up. I've seen several posts on it and the replies always say it's a known bug.

    oh. that is good to know. i thought that i might need another repair for this. so it is a common problem.

    i have never had it before though.
