1. Sleeping apps

Sleeping apps are apps that are currently sleeping but always ready to run in the background when you use them again. 

2. Deep sleeping apps

Apps listed under this category are never allowed to run in the background and only work when you open them.

3. Never sleeping apps

Adds listed under this category never turn off or sleep in the background, allowing you to use them at any time.


To access any of the above sleep mode options, just tap on the desired mode to view the list of apps listed in. On the following screen, you will see user-added and automatically added apps.

  • To add app(s) to any of the sleep modes or categories, choose the desired category and then tap the Plus (+) icon on the top-right corner of the screen then select the app(s) that you’d like to add in the category. Don’t forget to tap Add at the bottom-right corner of the screen to update and include the recently added app(s) in the list.
  • To remove any of these apps from any of the sleep modes or categories, tap the triple-dot icon on the top-right corner of the screen then tap Remove. Select the app(s) that  you’d like to remove from the list and then tap Remove at the bottom-right corner to confirm. The selected app(s) will then be removed from the current sleeping mode category. 

Should you wish to add or remove other apps from the other sleeping categories, just repeat the same steps.

Aside from the battery drain solution, putting unused apps to sleep will likewise prevent unexpected occurrences of in-app glitches, particularly those that are inflicted by any unused apps that are left running in the background. It also aids in keeping the overall system performance swift and smooth as intended.


Keeping your apps up-to-date is also highly recommended to ensure that all apps are working stable and free from any sort of bugs and malicious software that will likely trigger the occurrence of random in-app flaws and glitching.
