    Default AutoSync keeps turning off

    It's getting very frustrating - I have app data (calendar, pop3 mail, etc) that get's sync'd with my desktop and email servers. But, every few days, AutoSync gets turned off. I downloaded the app "AutoSync OnOff", thinking it could help to re-enable autosync. But, even that won't work - it turns it on momentarily, but then it shuts off within a second or two. It seems I have to go into Settings | Accounts/Google and click on my Google Account and then click "Sync now". That syncs all my accounts. It's not until I do this that I can then turn autoSync back on.

    Anyone know why auto sync turns off by itself in the first place, and if there's a way to keep it on?

    thanks,
    bert

    Do you have any battery saving apps? Is power saving mode turned on?

    I had the same problem and figured out that it was Battery Doctor. There was a switch deep in the settings that I had overlooked. Since I have had no problems with battery life, I deleted Battery Doctor and the problem was resolved.

    I searched for this exact problem and yes, i do have Battery Doc installed. Even with it my battery life is taxed like mad when using my Note III which most times is quite system intensive. I try to stay plugged most of the time but sometimes i just cant. Z70Mike, is there any chance you might recall where that setting was at in Battery Doc? I really like the app and would hate to have to toss it. TIA

    Did you figure out why this was happening? I'm having the same issue. I don't have Battery Doc installed.

    I also have a new tablet with no user app installed by me, but encountered same issues.
    I later discovered that a battery saver app (DU battery) was pre-installed.
    THAT PREINSTALLED APP WAS THE PROBLEM, I disabled it
