    Playing youtube music and internet at the same time

    Can anyone know how to open on browser tab to playing youtube music and switch to other tab to go amazon or google internet at the same time and you can still listen to music. When I play music on youtube and switch to other browser tab and the music is stop, it is in pause mode. Also sometimes I listen music suddenly it goes to sleep mode. I have to press the power on before I display on the screen again. Have anyone running into this problem before?? I have AT105 with 32GB. Thank in advance

    I think it is normal for the screen saver to kick in and turn off the screen after a set number of minutes. I think it is 30 minutes for me but I don't remember what I set it at. At least I think I set it or maybe it is the default, not sure, but I do not believe any thing is wrong with it shutting down the screen, even if while playing songs.

    Have you tried to play youtube.com music on on browser tab and switch to other browser tab to see if the music stop playing?? I see many users with same problem that they can not play youtube and search internet at the same time. Do you run into this problem at all??

    Second browser tab does the trick for me. I also use Pandora music from the market, free app and can open your browser. I'm using it now.

    Not defective

    Same experience here. I use Pandora. I set up the music i want to here and tap the back button in the lower left corner of my unit (task bar). The music continues to play when i open my browser. To return to Pandora tap the P in the task bar. There may be an app that will allow you to play YouTube but i don't know what it may be.

    Have this problem too, came to accept it for now.. but I found a Grooveshark launcher in marketplace not associated with the browser, and it continues to play when you do other things. Too bad the YouTube app can't also do this..
