how to force android version to save progress

I have searched the forums but have not found a solution
The game often loses my progress when it goes to the lock screen.
I am sure there is some sort of work around though, some manual way to force it to save.
I know it can save my progress because I have been reset to turn 3 on the same map 5 plays in a row.
So somehow I got it to save at turn 3, but I can't for the life of me figure out how.
Pressing the home button and then opening the game again does not save progress, I pick up where I was but after a few more turns the baby starts crying and I put down the phone, after the time out I come back and it has forgotten all my moves.
Love the game, but it is driving me crazy,
Andrew

have the same problem. I feel that Android development on this app has kind of ground to a halt. Shame really.

However,I have found that the game actually does save its state when you press the back button. If I am expecting something weird to happen on my phone, like maybe receiving a telephone call then I press the back button twice to exit the app and then start it up again. Then, if the game is interrupted it will start where you last saved it. It is no solution but it does help.

Thanks guys! I have given up on this. I thought this was not really possible. I didn't even think about trying the back button.
