I believe there are specific kinds of APIs for "background" processes and sync completion is something that gets a 10 minute window.

Some apps have tried to leverage the "music background" app by playing a blank sound in the background to allow you to do things... they've been rejected and reported on in the media by my recollections.

What's the real need to have it running in the background all the time? It will sync as soon as you fire it up anyway.
