    Problem is solved.
    I googled the problem and found this on YouTube


    For me the removal of Clean Master was the solution. After I gave the apps permissions I reinstalled CM Lite and everything work as it should.

    Before I get responses saying Clean Master is all kinds of evil I use it to hibernate apps and I am quite happy with it saving power and killing open background apps.
