Hi, I can not automate hibernate from applications. Even having already done for Greenify:
1. Enabled accessibility services.
2. Activated as device administrator.
3. Enabled application with access to use.
4. It is enabled for apps that want to hibernate: "ignore running state" and "ignore background-free".
5. I have already cleared the cache, the data, forced the stop, uninstall and reinstall Greenify.
6. In "Troubleshooting", via pc (ADB and USB Debugging), I enabled: "Awakened Application Tracker", "Quick Activation Notification" and "Service Guardian".
7. Reset factory.
8. I've never been warned that automatic hibernation has stopped working.

I always need to confirm the closure of each app manually.
And that way, when the apps auto-start again (without me opening them), Greenify does not hibernate them, they appear in the notification bar and I need to hibernate manually.

I already tried with the option "alternative screen off mode" checked and unchecked, but I get the same result, as well as "quick action notification".

Greenify Free Version: 3.8.5, without use Xposed
Android version: 6.0.1
Model: LeEco TV Le Max 2 X821 non root, Original ROM.

Thanks!

Automatic hibernation will happen only when the screen locks that too after sometime. Not when you are using the phone.

Can you give the name of an app (as an example) which refuses to hibernate?

Automatic Hibernation and Automated Hibernation are not working
I understand that it is an automatic hibernation and a shutdown time of the screen. Automatic Hibernation does not work, instead of a screen, with this option enabled, after 35 sec the screen switches back on and off quickly. That's only 1 app to hibernate. When manually connecting a screen and checking Greenify, nothing happened. None of the applications scheduled to hibernate have been hibernated, and sometimes others that have already hibernated have self-initialized. Therefore, I have disabled Automatic Hibernation, whether enabled or not, Automated Hibernation does not work.

Both Automatic Hibernation and Automated Hibernation are not working. Automated Hibernation is responsible for not having to manually tap the screen, so that each app is forcibly finalized. These issues (from not working Automatic Hibernation like Automated Hibernation) I'm facing in Greenify for all the apps I put on the hibernation list, I've attached an image with a few. Failure in Automated Hibernation can be seen in the screenshots I've attached. I always need to tap "Ok" to continue hibernation, ie manual hibernation, because the Automated Hibernation feature is not working.

I am not able to send the link with an image, as I have not done 10 posts in any forum. The link should be above this text.
Examples of applications on the Web: ES File Explorer, Firefox, Foxit PDF, GearBest, Keep, Uber, VLC.

Greetings.

What apps you're trying to hibernate? Certain apps have aggressive services in the background.

I have recently noticed that I enable the Greenify accessibility option, but when trying to hibernate the app, automated hibernation does not occur and automatic hibernation after turning off the screen also does not work. Then I turn the accessibility options to check: Greenify is disabled. I re-enable, but the option is disabled when trying to hibernate by Greenify.

Accessibility option needs to be enabled only if you are not rooted. But with Google recently changing the policy regarding apps using the Accessibility service, it may not work at all for Greenify.

Regarding your issue, I have not come across anyone else complaining of similar behaviour. How long do you wait after screen off to check if an app is hibernated?

Enable Automatic Hibernation in Root mode, choose a few apps for hibernation. Start each of the apps chosen for hibernation and then close them. Lock the screen and wait for about 15 minutes. Now unlock the screen and open Greenify and take a screenshot. Attach it here or post it anywhere and provide the link to it.

Also let us know what ROM you are using, whether rooted or not, whether using Xposed or not etc.

I cleaned the cache, removed all the data, uninstalled it, and reinstalled Greenify. But it did not solve the problem. Even the accessibility option being enabled can not terminate the apps.

Here are some of the settings for my cell phone and Greenify.

Even with all these settings and waiting for 15 min after turning off the screen, the apps are not automatically hibernated.
Also, when automated hibernation (which should be possible with the accessibility options being enabled), it does not work. Look at the image below.

So I need to press OK for each app that will be hibernated, as in the image above. As can be seen in the image below.

Very odd. Never came across such behaviour. I think that someone more knowledgeable or the dev alone can help you.

I am sorry.

I removed all the data and cache and uninstalled the app. I became a tester and installed the app beta, but the result was the same. Even if I enable accessibility to the app, I still have to tap the OK button on the screen for each app I want to hibernate.
