A lot of people seem unaware of this and keep telling me that they can't greenify google play services and other system apps because they are running ART.

I'm running ART as well. I used this little app https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...systemappmover to convert play services, search and maps, amongst others, to user apps. After that, I could just greenify them. The apps still work, and are just greenified automatically when the screen is off for a few minutes. As you can see below, there are no more wakelocks!

Nice tips! Thanks a lot.
Although I though the restriction was related to being System Apps and not ART itself?

Not exactly. Rooted + Dalvik runtime + Xposed Framework + paid version of Greenify will give the ability to hibernate system apps. Otherwise, you do need to make the system apps user apps like Arthedes pointed out. You could also do the same thing manually with any file manger, if rooted.
