    thanks for the info...so I downloaded Shutapp and Doze. With shutapp i selected whitelist apps...how often should I close the apps? with "DOZE"... what do I do?
    I would just white list the apps that you want to keep open and shut the rest. Once in a while see what apps opened and white list or shut down accordingly.

    With regards to doze, just let whatever apps you need to be added to the white list.

    So what happened to them then?

    Someone else from a couple years ago on a different thread did the same thing. That person was given Zip Files in the response from forum member and put them bakc. I used those Zip Files So I don't have the originals for Note 5 right now

    You can not actually delete them unless you are rooted, those are system files.

    There's the link to same thing that happened to this guy. I took the zip fIles from that post. Now I want my Note 5 ones. Don't know where to find them.

    But you really can't delete them without root.

    Did you do the hard reset and cache wipe?

    If you are referring to the volume up + home key + power then yes I did

    No that is a wipe cache.

    And when you went to choose a new ringtone in sounds, nothing is there?

    I was talking about holding power and volume down until it rebooted.

    Good deal. Once you get everything like you want, the battery does seem to "settle" in. It takes a few days after new or a reset, to settle in.

    Great to hear that. Mine has never been bad, but after several charge cycles, app updates, tweaking things to my liking it's settled in. Lastly, after a few changes last night, I've finally killed off that dang cell standby. Now I'm good.

    There's were no tones. I realized it when I was getting emails and text but no notification sounds.

    When I went into sounds there was nothing to select.

    Now there is when I used that zip file from post just not Note 5 stock sounds. Completely different now

    OK, two things I know to do. First a reset, do it from the menu of holding down home, power, volume up. There is a reset option listed above cache wipe, then set it up as a new device when it asks. The second, go by Best Buy, at the Samsung counter ask them to flash it for you.

    I just don't understand how those can be gone, they are system files and you don't even have access without root..

    Did you by any chance install something like Zedge, used it to open your ringtones and notifications (thereby setting Zedge as the default), but didn't download/install any sounds?

    This would result in nothing to choose from when you try to set ringtones and notifications from the sound settings.

    When u say set up as new user does that mean I'm going to have to set up everything all over again? I really don't want to go through that again.

    Also what keyboard are you using? Swiftkey? I had it but removed it as it was always showing up under battery issues. Maybe it's not a big deal.

    Yeah set it up as a new user. You can try to let it load everything and see if they show up. I'm just trying to figure the easiest way to get it done, reset is the last option I want. Best Buy is a quick and easy way to do it, they just flash the software back on your phone and it is free, but there is some setting up.

    Yeah, I use SwiftKey, have for several years now. It will show on what is used and it never needs to be hibernated. It should never use much battery.

    I prefer swiftkey and noticed that in my notifications every day it keeps telling me to select Samsung Keyboard. Drove me nuts.

    I use Google Now Launcher and if I do a hard reset to set-up as new user is that going to disappear as well?

    Have not used it. I don't use many battery saving apps, so ShutApp is an exception for me.

    Additionally that means having to disable all that bloatware and stop sync on Google again.

    Used to, Samsung wouldn't keep the default keyboard, not an issue now.

    Yes that will. Setting up as a new user you will have to download everything again.

    You can try to reset from the phone and restore when you log into your Gmail and see if they show up.

    Look at the post a couple back concerning Zedge and see if that is an issue for you.

    The app doesn't use a lot of batter. I use AC app, it is just the forums, not Android Central App.
