When I do a long press on Home Button, recent apps stack appears.
Is there a way to remove or hide this stack?

Best regards

 No.  This is internal to the OS and cannot be overridden...

I don't want to override it, just to clear apps list.
The only way to clear it is to turn off the mobile?

What you're seeing there is not really a "stack".  It is just a list
of applications that the user has recently used, whether or not they
are actually running at that moment.  You can't change it with an
application.  They will go away at reboot or when other applications
become more recent and cause old ones to fall off.

1. Paying $50 for someone to design an application...

I am not much of a last programming class was FORTRAN.
But I love this phone with the exception of one problem:  I hate the
autolock feature of the phone.

I can provide references via eBay or the Corvette Forums as to my
credibility that I will pay immediately upon usage of an application
that does this very simple action:

Simply turn off the default autolock feature.  As it stands now the
phone locks once the screen times out.  This battery is not good
enough on the G1 to leave the backlight on at all times nor should it
be necessary.  Yes I realize you only need to hit the menu button
twice but that gets annoying when texting back and forth.

I have tried Autolock and Lock 2.0 and neither fulfills this

I look forward to hearing from you.  You can contact me at or on the forums that I provided above.

I am not the only person with this problem.  It should have been an
option from the get-go to turn off or leave on.

In Android 1.0 there's Calendar program,  when I try to run it, it
shows "Waiting for sync".  And there's no any gmail related apks to
log in gmail account. And I know Google won't open source Gmail apk

What should I do to make sync run normally ?  Should I have to get
Gmail.apk from Google?
