 Hi all,
     AFAIK, wake locks ensure a constant device state (for CPU,LCD
backlight, Keypad backlight) in between acquire() and release() of a
wake lock.
    What if there are two or more apps acquiring (rather trying to
acquire) wake lock at a same time? How are they handled? Who takes
this responsibility?
    Please put some light on these issues.

 I suppose acquire() just increases some hidden counter and the device
is turned on until all of the locks are released.

2. Confirm MediaPlayer automatic retry on streaming HTTP error

Hi all,
I have an app which streams mp3s from the web, proxied through a local HTTP 
server. At times, this local proxy server returns an HTTP error. It seems 
that upon receiving this error during the prepare state, the MediaPlayer 
makes one more attempt to stream, sending another request to the URL 
specified in setDataSource().

thread, I can see that after sending an HTTP error response, another request 
for the same URL is made. Can someone confirm this behavior? I'm seeing this 
from the emulator running a 1.6 AVD.

Additionally, can I disable this automatic retry? Is there a specific HTTP 
error code that I can send that will prevent this retry?
