Default Safe Mode?

While attempting to get a warranty replacement for defective battery (drains to ~50% and then poweres off) I had a tech ask me if I had tried running it in safe mode. I was wondering if he was just trying to get me off the phone. He claimed I could long press the shutdown message and would get an option for "safe mode". I think he's nuts but couldn't verify as I was running CM 11 at the time. Going to try later.

I believe there is a safe mode option in Stock I have seen it before. It basically only runs android with system apps.

Confirmed. While it may be safe it certainly wouldn't be very useful since you can't use any third party apps while in safe mode.

This should work on almost any ROM. Also, certain devices you can boot directly in to safe mode from a cold boot, on my nexus 7 to do that you have to volume up+down while it's booting.
