Waze will "wake itself up" if you sleep your phone directly from the "Waze is asleep" screen and then unlock your phone.

Right, although according to his post stuartdole was pressing the Home button after putting Waze to sleep.

is it possible for waze to save the route when you put the program to sleep, so that when it wakes up, it doesn't have to recalculate from scratch?

Traffic conditions have likely changed since you put Waze to sleep, so a recalculation is wise if not required. Even when Waze is active and you are driving, recalculations are happening periodically to keep you aware of changing conditions. You just don't see those unless a significant change is detected.

I personally despise the "sleep" function. It is too easy to tap the screen and wake the darn thing up. I want it to "Quit" and am considering just killing it with the iOS 7 task killing function going forward. When I am done driving, I am done, and I don't need Waze in the background at all for any reason. Just exit! It doesn't start any faster, so I am not sure how this is a benefit to the user at all.

Sleep button on future iOS versions

Postby omba_de » Tue Oct 08, 2013 5:13 pm

What I've recognized since iOS 7: many apps (all?) which are in the task line shut down after some time (don't know how much time that is). So if waze won't have that sleep button, you won't be able to switch between apps and bring it back properly (while driving).

And if you've ended waze with the sleep button, it's in the task line (like all other apps are) and it uses no extra batterie, no GPS and no data. So no big deal with it...

Thanks for reading this thread so you understand exactly why it is this way. 1) Apple required it (would not approve Waze future versions with "Exit"), 2) It works exactly as before, just doesn't drop you to the Springboard (Apple forbids it), 3) Just tap the Home button and it consumes the EXACT same amount of resources in the background now as it did before with the "exit" menu item = none.

I wish the Sleep button would do two things (1) put the app to sleep and then (2) put you back on the home screen. It amazing how easily it is to unsleep the app - when you do not want it to be running.

Thanks.
