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
