Apps that won’t be put to sleep on samsung phone, what is it all about and what does it mean. This is what I’m going to explain to you on this post, and to let you know if you need to have your apps added to this feature.
This is one of the features added on samsung phones after launching the Android 10 and Samsung Ui 2.1, and I really like the feature especially the sleeping apps, and the deep sleeping apps mode.
Now let me explain what apps that won’t be put to sleep on Samsung phone means.
What does apps that won’t be put to sleep
This simply means to prevent apps from being added to the sleeping mode on samsung phone or to have apps running in the phone background.
First, there’s sleeping apps and deep sleeping apps options in the Samsung app power management feature in the battery management.
These features helps to prevent apps especially the unused apps from running in the phone background and to save battery life of the phone, but they are different from apps that won’t be put to sleep option.
In samsung phones, when you have list of apps which you rarely use or open on your mobile phone, by default they will be put to sleeping apps mode especially if you activated or turned on put unused apps to sleep.
In order to prevent this from happening and you have some favorite apps which you don’t fancy to be added to sleep mode, you should add some of your favorite apps to apps that won’t be put to sleep on your samsung phone.
This is really what this feature is all about, preventing apps from being added to the sleeping apps mode.

What drains a phone battery is having lots of apps running in the background, but when you restrict these apps especially the unused apps from running in the background, it saves your phone battery and it won’t die faster.
The likes of Facebook app, instagram, Twitter, etc consumes lots of battery because of the notifications sent by these apps. If you don’t fancy receiving these notifications on your mobile phone, you can put the app into a deep sleeping apps mode and it will definitely save your phone battery life.
