    Just JB for the first time and having a
    problem with Backgrounder. It enables
    fine by holding down Home or Power
    button, but holding down to disable
    doesn't work. I get Voice on Home
    down and Sleep on Power hold down.

    How do I disable backgrounding?

    I have a 3GS and backgrounder, to enable and disable it is by holding down the home button. This is by default. You can change that in the app settings by tapping on Backgrounder.

    make sure that when you go to disable the app you reopen it and then hold the home button while the app is open. You cannot disable the running app from the springboard as far as I know.

    BeerBaron, that's the answer. I hadn't opened the app back up. Thanks so much.

    I've been using Backgrounder for awhile and in my opinion, this is how all smartphones should support background use of apps. If you want to keep it in the background and running, then activate that app. This way you have full control over which apps are running in the background.
