Set your Always Sleeping Apps

Some apps you want to receive constant updates from, like your email. But others? Not so much. Save battery life on your phone and say goodbye to pesky apps with the Always Sleeping Apps setting. It prevents certain apps from running in the background.

You can access this setting in the Device Care menu. Touch Battery, and then touch More option. Touch Settings > Sleeping apps and then Add to select apps to run in this mode.
