    Okay, Don't yell at me too much as I cant find a good answer in the forums.

    When I stop/pause the music player it's really not STOPPED. You can hit the volume rocker and bam!!!! it's back and just paused.
    For now all I know to do is power the phone off/on.
    I read about an APP but why use an APP when it should be just a simple tap to turn the dang thing off.
    I'm new to Windows Phones but hope this doesn't ruin my experience.

    I'm pretty sure it times out after about 30 mins, maybe an hour. I did notice it there but I haven't reset my phone yet and it's gone now.

    Even though it's paused, it still bugs me to see it when I adjust the volume. It's not a big deal, but just an annoyance, to me anyway.

    There is an app called "Stop The Music" that I used with my Nokia 900 that shut it down with one click.

    Install 'Stop The Music' and pin it to your start screen. Just a simple click and it clears the music player controls from your start screen, simple!

    I'm fairly certain that having music paused will have no effect in battery life.

    I actually like having quick access to the music player after I've paused. Also, I've noticed it goes away after a certain time period. The fact took the controls off the lock screen shows they are listening to complaints. For me, I've already had a few instances where I've paused my music, come back 10 minutes later and had the convenience of pressing play to start right back up.
    It's just my personal preference.

    I guess the perfect solution would allow a closing of the music app with the back button, thereby removing the controls from the volume bar.

    Also, the idea of the op going into rage mode as he picks his phone up, hits volume and see the music player controls OVER AND OVER is quite amusing to me...and a reboot to make them go away. Ah Mondays...

    Yeah nothing like not being able to turn it off and you accidentally hit the play and people hear the song *****(in this moment) blaring from my phone in public....really?
    I laugh when i hear. There's an app for that...I feel it should just work. I shouldnt have to load 10 apps to start or stop crap.
    Yes it does drain battery on pause. I tested it. It runs in the background.
    Kinda like not being able to charge the phone when it's OFF LOL is there an APP for that?

    I have to say that I much prefer it to just stay paused. I stream music to my car and when I start my car it picks up from where it was before and that is exactly what I want it to do. Also, since Windows Phone 7 launched I have never once accidentally started playing music, so I can't imagine that is a real issue.

    What do you mean it runs in the background? Every app 'runs in the background' when you exit it, that's how windows phone multitasking works. Apps are able to freeze their state and can then resume when you switch back to them. None of these apps use battery while they are frozen. Why do you think the music player is any different.

    I'm not sure how you observed it draining your battery, but I can only think you are mistaken.

    How did you get it to "go away" ?
    I was in the Microsoft App Store on Friday night laying in bed trying out the various music samples to see if I wanted to buy any. Here it is Monday morning and the last song I played a sample of is still paused when I hit the volume key. I've had a few other phones accidentally start playing the paused music while I was in training or meetings... don't want this one to do that too.

    BB was last hold out with a stop button. I haven't noticed any difference in battery with pause vs using "Stop the music" to stop it.

    In over 2 years of WP ownership, i've never had an accidental pressing of the play button, so i can't see it being that much of an issue.

    Not only that, but i reguarly get 3 days out of my phone with the music "paused", so i don't see it as a battery drain either.

    I think the only complain I have is when I am wearing my stereo BT headset. If I click on the headset to end the call, the music will often start playing.

    Yes, this is exactly tthe problem. Its consistent. Also happens when using wired headsets as well. lets say you are listening to music, press pause, disconnect your headset and walk into a meeting. The music will just start playing from the phone in 5-30 seconds. This is bad design.
    My ssolution has been to use "stop the music" app. Not great, buy it saves me from the embarrassment.

    Go to settings
    Tap Airplane mode and turn on.
    Should turn off all wifi and cellular data
    Then turn back on.
    Music should be off and volume controls back to normal.
    This works if you were playing music online.
