This is how to unsleep apps from the deep sleeping apps mode on samsung galaxy phones.
Put unused apps to sleep
If you enabled this feature on your samsung phone, it will automatically put unused apps on your mobile phone to sleep. The unused apps are the apps you haven’t opened in a very long time or months.
Though I recommend to enable the put unused apps to sleep, if you want to remove the apps put to sleep, you will check it the app is on the sleeping apps mode or probably the deep sleeping apps mode.
However, I noticed that the put unused apps to sleep feature usually put the apps to a deep sleeping apps mode and not the other mode. So what you’ve to do is to remove or unsleep the app from the deep sleeping apps mode.
If you don’t like the put unused apps to sleep feature on your mobile phone, you should turned off the feature on your samsung phone.
So all these are how to unsleep an app on mobile phones, probably on samsung galaxy phones cause other phones has theirs as well.
Remember, putting an app to sleep is very essential and helpf cause it helps to prevent or stop the unused app from running in the phone background, and thereby helping to save battery life on the mobile phone.
Again it is not about putting an unused app to sleep, if you have an app that drain your battery or consume your phone battery so much, you can swiftly put the app to a sleep and save your phone battery.
I do that to the likes of Facebook, Twitter app, Instagram app, online shopping aps, and apps that consumes my phone battery the most except for the likes of Google play services and the play store.
Don’t even dare try to put Google play services to sleep cause it means stopping your phone from functioning as long as you are using an android phone.
So if you have apps that consumes your phone battery, kindly put them to sleep but don’t do that with WhatsApp unless you don’t fancy to receive whatsapp notifications or messages on your mobile phone.
● Don’t miss Quick share samsung: All you need to know
If you need to use the app, you open it and read your messages and check on the notifications. And for deep sleeping apps, the app will return back to the mode immediately you close the app. This is why I prefer to use it than using the sleeping apps mode on my samsung phone.
This is how to unsleep apps on your mobile phone, be it samsung galaxy phone or any other android phone. This feature is very nice and I have been using it to preserve the battery life of my mobile phone.
