My hibernating apps are draining my battery and making my phone too hot. How do I turn off hibernating apps? And, is there a downside to doing it? Thank you in advance.
If you're referring to the recent apps menu, try locking the ones you want to keep readily available and running (click the app icon at the top of each in the recent apps menu then "Lock this app"). You can then use Close All to close all of the unlocked apps, and can still close locked apps individually by swiping.
