I don't recommend it but I suppose if it's really bugging you you could always try freezing Play Store when you're not using it. You could use App Quarantine and create a widget to freeze/defrost it with 1 click. Not sure if it's going to even work or how this will affect your phone so don't blame me if you screw up your phone.

This is another universal curse of Android.. And sometimes this crap calls itself a service etc to tryto skirt task managers.... This permission needs to be banned from android...

These apps are so small the newer phones don't even leave the developers the standard lame excuse of "quick loading"...

It's my bloody phone.. I'll give permission...

If your app doesn't work right or load quick on a dual core 1.5ghz chipset with 1gig of ram.. YOU DID IT WRONG..

if you actually notice the store hogging ram on a dual core 1.5ghz/1gb ram phone, you are insane.

It's a core Google app. If you want to stop it, root your phone, get a custom ROM, and don't flash Gapps. The phone is set to use Google Play for stuff like this, and barely uses any memory at all.

Stop complaining, and calm down. There are just some things you can't turn off on a phone...you know...kinda like on a computer.

PS: You can set apps to NOT auto-update in the app store settings.

... I feel the same of the author of the topic..
If i want an app to run, i'll launch it.
Those answer are all blablabla.. i don't want app in background that i don't use. END.
For me it can drain even 0,001% of battery\ram but it's not the point.

Tried both gemini and autostarts.. as today..

Playstore old worked, the new one reset all settings and always on.
Maps work, but if u launch it , it will reset something, and u have to terminate the app from settings,apps..ecc.

With root must be a way to bypass those stupid apps from get permissions ecc..
