Device:

Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc S (Android 4.0.4)

 

Skype app (version 2.8.0.9200)

 

Skype keeps closing after few minutes of inactivity or even quicker if I switch to another app or the home screen.

I've been having the same problem for about a week now. Skype auto-closes and when I restart it, it asks me either for the password or for both user name and password (both of which should be remembered automatically). The device is a Samsung Galaxy S2 (GT-I9100), Android 2.3.3.

Yes, I have the same model as you, Samsung Galaxy II and Skype has been switching itself off about every 30-45 minutes. Its been doing it for about 4 days now. Its really frustrating.

Same here, no update or anything changed, just started happening on It's own.

 

Tried re-installing, re-booting etc but to no avail.

I am also having the same problem on my HTC EVO 3D. It started doing it about 2 days ago. Every time, it closes after a while of inactivity and when I go to restart it I have to put my password back in.
