In this guide we will explain how to put an app to sleep if you are not using it with the purpose of saving battery charge. Be noted, that the app put to sleep will likely be unable to send you notification. This means that once you’ve done it, the app will stop its background activity and therefore you will get its notifications and updates only when you manually open that application (put in the foreground). So, be careful with putting to sleep messengers and other interactive apps that you want to be able to deliver you notifications on time.
In their new Galaxy Note 10 and Note 10+ Samsung suggests to use the side key as Bixby on long press. In such a way, if you are using the default settings you will wake your phone or lock it if you short press the side key and launch the Bixby assistant if you hold it down. And you are supposed to tap the power icon in the pull-down shade if you are eager to power off or reboot your phone.
You can’t remap the short-press actions on Note 10 because they are hard-coded but the long-press and double press functions can be easily changed in the Settings without using any third-party apps. And here is how.

I faced the problem after June 2019 update on my Galaxy S9. The thing is I use Do Not Disturb mode almost all the time to silence callers that are not in my Contacts (I configured the DND feature to ring calls and messages from numbers that are in contacts). Everything was okay but, after I installed the update the behavior of my phone changed. When my wife called me I noticed that my Galaxy S9 now plays ringtone me but the display remains completely turned off. I have to manually wake my phone, unlock it, then pull down the shade and tap the Phone app banner to bring it to front. It goes without saying that these steps are very inconvenient and make no sense. Keep reading to know how I fixed the problem.
