Apps closing while charging

Has anyone else had an issue with their apps closing while the phone is plugged in and charging? I usually have it plugged in at my desk but when I try to do things while it is charging it always force closes whatever app I am in. Not a terrible problem but just curious if it happens to anyone else and if you did anything to fix it.

Thank you for your inquiry. Are these applications installed on your memory card? When you connect the phone to the computer it unmounts the SD card from the phone so the computer can access the card. So any applications, pictures, music, etc will not be viewable on your phone while connected to the computer. One thing I would suggest trying is changing the USB debugging settings to see if this changes it. Go to Settings>Applications>Development>Try toggling the USB debugging mode.

They would have to be manually be doing that so I would almost bet the farm that that is not there problem

mine never unmounts unless I do it

  This just happend to me 3 times today. I was using Google Navigation while plugged into my car dock, and the Navigation app just closed. I had to reopen it to continue my navigation. It also happened out on the golf course twice, neither time was I plugged, and I was running a golf distance app. All 3 times I was in landscape mode, and using an app that uses the GPS.
