One of the things I love about the Galaxy Note 2 phone and the Galaxy Note 10.1 tablet is the S-note application. I use it all the time. However, one infuriating aspect to this is that it wants to refresh every time I start it up on the Note 10.1 tablet and have to wait a few seconds before I can start writing. There is a message that comes up saying "Sync Notes" and below that it says "Refreshing" accompanied by one of those blue spinning "processing..." circle.This is really limiting when I want to whip it out and start writing. In settings I have disabled all auto-sync options, but it still wants to refresh. Even when I navigate in the menu, this message comes up.

Does anyone know how to prevent this and have the device only try and sync/refresh when I want it to.

I would be most grateful for any advice offered.
