    when i click on ram it shows facebook messenger is on top of the list using the most ram is there anyway i can stop it from running after im done using it?
    That is OK for it to be at the top. You can not stop it from running in RAM if you use it. If it starts showing up high in the battery percentage, that is another issue.

    You don't need to clear out RAM like you do for a Windows computer. I don't even have 1 gb of free RAM.

    Facebook messenger is going to use a lot of resources and if you use it, it will always run on the background.

    It won't help you to force stop it.

    I left you a message with things to do so I can look at what you have and options around Facebook messenger. I don't use messenger because it uses so many resources.

    ShutApp keeps them hibernated if they aren't on the whitelist.
    Huh? If that's true why do I need to keep shutting them down by pressing the shut up button? If that were the case I'd delete Doze and just use Shutapp.

    You might have things you don't want to hibernate.

    Here's today's stats. I unplugged at 7:15am.

    My screen time is high I guess with almost 4 hours due to heavy email and text today and using apps like AC and others.

    But I've seen some with SOT of 6 hours with a hell of a lot of battery over mine.

    Frustrating because I thought I might have solved it but maybe not.

    You mentioned Kelly that Shutapp hibernated apps but why would it pop up I name bubble telling me 3-5 apps are running and I have to hit it to shut them down.

    Man it would be great to turn on a device for once fix a couple things and not worry any longer like I did with iPhone 6+. . I had to just tweak location stuff on that as well as minor notifications and I got 12-15 easy all day with heavy use.

    Argh

    Maybe I'm missing something. Shutapp closes apps that are not whitelisted that run in the background correct? Doze is the app that actually hibernates stuff with screen closed.

    So Shutapp just notifies u when apps are open and using battery in background and let's you manually shut them off not hibernates them.

    If you're asking about the GSam battery monitor app, no, I don't. Funny, but, if you look at one of my post a couple of pages back, I posted my On Screen Time. So, it was there at one stage...

    Hmm..still odd. Do you have GSam installed?

    Nope, ShutApp will hibernate the apps, but I have some that still pop up, odd ones here and there. You won't get notifications of those apps on ShutApp unless they are on the whitelist.

    Doze seems to hibernate to an extent when the screen goes dark.

    Yeah, that is odd. You don't have your screen turned way, way, way down do you?

    I think your issue is your signal. Your android system is high up there. Almost always my screen is the highest thing, even though my screen is turned down low.

    No, about a quarter of the way. I'm in a chat with Samsung. Their solution is to charge the device to 95%, unplug it, use it for a while, and then it will show.
    Yep, weird...

    Hmm..if that doesn't work, I would want them to tell me why, since it has worked before. That might be enough for me to exchange a new phone, even through it isn't an obvious problem.

    Same difference really as setting up a new one, but I would first just set up a bare minimum and make sure it is showing up. If not, then make them give you a new one.

    Hmmm..your phone is staying awake a lot, but it is really impossible to tell what is doing that. I would also be tempted to return it with it staying awake like that. If you are going to return it anyway, doing a reset from recovery menu and just basically set up the phone, and don't download a bunch of apps, etc and see how it does.

    I think you're right. Looking at it my signal bounces between 3g and 1x and text messages take a lot longer. I'm going to check on a range extender or whatever that is. Checking to see if company will get me one.
