It was a big complaint in WP7 that the music controls would get stuck on the lock screen. In WP8 they fade away after a few seconds but they're still there... I listen to some music for a few minutes and now 24 hours later I still have to see the music controls every time I unlock the phone or adjust the volume. I can't see the music player app open so how am I supposed to make the darn thing go away? Not only is it irritating, I worry I might clumsily press play when unlocking my phone and blare out something - typically when trying to put my phone on silent would be just typical!
Thanks for any solution.
