This change happened to CamerAlert a few months back, I've been kind of expecting in Waze since then as the CamerAlert Devs said it was forced on them by apple. :(

Well, after upgrading yesterday (iPhone 4) and returning home I discovered the change to "sleep". Unfortunately, while my son was watching television he told me it woke my phone about an hour after I retired. He hit the top hold button and the screen went dark. Two hours later it did the same thing. He repeated the action. After he retired; some point during the night it woke again and burned the battery down to 5%. No other apps running; no alarms, reminders or messages (text, voice or mail: I don't use this phone for much other than voice and nav). Each newer iteration of this app lately is giving me reason to reinstall GPS Drive. Couple that with the huge number of "Unknown" major highways being displayed lately and this app is one step away from being uninstalled.

I might also "assume" that sleep meant the app was still running....off is off.

Don't thank Google, thank APPLE. This is an APPLE requirement, it has NOTHING to do with Google's purchase of Waze.

iOS activates the last app which was open when locking the phone. It may be possible, however, for Waze to not actually Wake Up when activated, but that would also require you tap the "Wake Up" button even if you just tap on Waze from the springboard when you had previously put it to sleep. It would not just affect waking from Lock.

Based on the moronic statement made here, I'm surprised dkhan63 could figure out how to turn on a smartphone.

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.

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.

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

That would be completely against the iOS guidelines, would it not. The home button has very limited use, but returning to another window/screen of the currently running app I don't think is one of the acceptable uses. Of course, Apple gets to ignore their own requirements any time they wish...
