Default background apps and battery life. 9360

I have a blackberry curve 9360.

When I start my blackberry with no apps running, I push the blackberry button and I get the option to switch from the home screen to blackberry messenger, browser, phone or messages.

Are these features constantly running on the phone?

Is there a way to get apps to automatically close or go to standby after a set amount of time?

I think these apps aren't helping my battery life.


Has anyone any tips on how to extend battery life past half a day without having to turn my phone off after everytime I've used it?


Hope you guys can help,

Hello Saxerpi,


Welcome to the community & Thanks for your Post..!!


There is no option to auto exit from apps, you have to do it manually & use below articles to increase battery life of your handheld




 Hope this will help you..!!
