In one implementation, a computer-implemented method can include receiving, at a driver running on a mobile computing device with a local power source, a command from an application for an allocation of volatile memory; allocating, by the driver, memory from a pool of volatile memory for the application; storing data in the allocated memory; detecting, by the driver, that a particular situation currently exists on the mobile computing device that will cause the data to be lost; and performing, by the driver, an operation with regard to the memory and the data that will cause the data to be preserved following a conclusion of the particular situation.
