Bug Description

If you hit the power button to lock the phone while a track is playing. The track stops, when you press play nothing happens, press it onto pause then play again and the counter starts to move again however there is now no sound from the player.

The only way to get around this issue is to stop the app and reopen it.

This is because of that the power management of Ubuntu Touch hasn't yet been completed. All apps are suspended to save power. But this will come for sure, as fast as the power management is in.

Jus t to further add to this, I notice that when the app is suspended on device lock, the sound is killed for the entire device until reboot.

On my Nexus 4 the music continues playing after I turn it on again. But it still stops when suspending the device.
