I want to run Sports Tracker in this mode, but it stops working after turning off the screen

Also will this work on a Sprint Galaxy S5? (SM-G900P)

if it doesnt have that file you can add it. No problem. Take one of the files published ona previous page, copy it into system/csc and give rw-r-r permissions. then reboot. It should work on all devices, including sprint. Cheers!

Obviously if you run more apps, you'll use some more power when you're using those new apps in power save mode. But will adding more to the menu use any more power while you're not using these?

What I'm really trying to establish is if there's any negative point to adding more apps in power save mode.

Hey mate, I think I came across something today that may answer your question.

After adding settings with UPSM manager, I went into "manage apps" and discovered that whilst in this mode, all apps are marked as "disabled" except for those that work in upsm.

Based on this observation, it seems like UPSM actually disables all apps (and by consequence their background services) to save battery, not just hiding them.

So to answer your question, I'd guess that adding more apps will not in itself cause battery drain, unless the apps have battery/ram consuming background services. Therefore my approach is to enable as few apps as I need (whatsapp, music etc), whilst leaving off apps like facebook which has notifications etc.

Hope that helps you or someone
