    I had noticed that some android apps tend to stay hanging in background and using up battery. Is there a way to only reboot the android runtime?

    Get Taskmanager from BB World. That'll allow you to kill Android apps running in the background.

    Cool thanks! Do you typically kill everything?

    I have very few Android apps as it is. I check the app every now and again and will kill whatever is running as if I'm not using it, I don't need it using battery. The Z10 is already a little light in that department.

    Use Ghost Commander to uncheck notifications for those android apps. You need to do this for each and every app that runs to wait for a notification to push to you. I turned off a few and battery life got better. Use the built-in Device Manager to see which apps are running. Make a list, close those apps, see which ones restart on their own.
