    Ugh my self control went totally out the window. I couldn't deal with not knowing the battery life of the dock. I put Dual Battery Widget back on but I'm using an older version (0.7.7) . Wonder if my icons will stay visible.

    I learned something......some apps leave fragments of code when deleted. Turns out that Slacker did that. I deleted the remaining files, rebooted, and these problems seem to have gone away....though I need to test for another day or two.

    If you pull an app, and problems continue, use the file manager and check your hard drive to see if there may be file fragments still sitting there. They may be part of your problem.

    How would you know?

    I have snooped around the file system a bit myself, but was careful to not change anything. Are the file fragments labeled appropriately? Or are there subdirectories with appropriate names? This may be a stupid question, but I bet I'm not the only one wondering how you figured out that file fragments from Slacker Radio (for example) were still there hanging around...

    Take a look for directory names....it was easy.

    Right in the root directory of my Transformer (after uninstalling both Slacker and PocketBlu) there was a file directory called "Slacker", and another called "PocketBlu". Each of those directories contained subdirectories, as well as files.

    That's how I knew

    So, I just deleted both directories, including all files in them, rebooted, and "poof", my tablet started behaving again.

    Maybe it's just coincidence....but....I think not.

    Excellent. Thank you!

    I will snoop around some more, to see if I have leftover bits-- all too often, I'll try out a program/app, then discard it as not doing what I thought. I use Root Explorer myself-- what's your favorite file browser?

    Sounds like a coincidence to me. Uninstalling an app removes all the code that could run and affect the tablet. The only thing left would be random data, which shouldn't affect anything.

    My Transformer keeps freezing and when it comes back, all the icons are gone for about 20 seconds.
    We can't play any games on the tablet anymore because they all freeze. You tube flickers and is unusable. Basically the update turned my tablet, which I loved, into a piece of garbage.

    It happens to my Asus Transformer on a regular basis after the ICS update and found out from the forums that there was no need to reboot, just close the Launcher in Settings/Apps/Running (show cached or show running processes).

    This is too obvious for me to actually declare as to what app is responsible because it was easy for me to find out for myself just now that when I placed the Super Booster widget (a rocket launching of all things) on my homescreen and once this widget is pressed to do a simulated reboot, all my apps disappeared. So there. I can speculate that the icons disappearing can be triggered by a number of actions not relative to one another (not a chain of events) but this SB app's widget could be directly related to the cause ...my speculation ends. I'm sorry it's best to end it before I start making things up you see :-)




    Laughter ! The best medicine :-)

    I use the stock file browser myself. With Honeycomb, I was using ES File Explorer, Astro, and then after upgrade to ICS, I've tried File Explorer HD.

    I've trimmed back to the stock file browser though. It seems to do everything I need, with the exception of FTP.

    Yeah,

    This recently started happening to me, too. And I have a Transformer Prime. Been running the most recent build of ICS for a couple/three weeks now with no sign of this behavior. But here in the last couple of days it's been happening a lot, usually after a web browsing session (I use the stock browser, as well as Dolphin). I don't think I have purchased any apps in the past week or so, but several of my apps have been updated. I don't have Slacker Radio or Pocket Blue, but I do have the Dual Battery Widget. I'll try removing that and see what happens. But, really, I shouldn't have to play hide-n-seek with my apps to make my tablet work. So frustrating. C'mon Asus!
