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.
