Default [Q] Show Notifications driving me nuts..

Everyone,

I know how to go into application manager and uncheck the "show notifcations" box to stop notifications from application / games.
What is happening though, is the manufacturers of the games / apps. are releasing frequent updates to their game / app., which then resets the "show notifications" box to checked, and I am being woke up in the middle of the night several times a week by my phone receiving these marketing pushes from the recently updated game / app.
I work in I.T., and receive pages to my phone, (I use Missed Messages to make sure I get and acknowledge important messages), so I just can't disable all notifications in the evening hours.
Is there a way to permanently, even after updates, make sure that the "show notifications" box stays unchecked at all times for an application or game?
Maybe a notification manager app, or a setting I can manually modify, (without negatively impacting Missed Messages and my work related pages)?

Thank you!

Kdvditters.

P.S. My phone is a T-mobile, Note 3, stock (not rooted).

I think you mean playstore not application manager?
Are you letting the apps 'auto update' ?
If so,turn off in playstore and then you can update apps when you want,when done turn of notifications again.

What you can try:

Greenify (app) all the apps. It basically shuts down all apps you add to the list through Force Stop. Usually shuts them up for me.
Deep Sleep Battery Saver works on a similar process.

Never underestimate the power of stupid people in large groups.

The simplest solutions are often the cleverest. They are also usually wrong.
