After change to there are the App - Settings - "Allow to run background on startup". It´s on a good way. But there is also an option nessesary -> Dissallow background services after closing the app.

At special it seems to be a loot of android apps that try to stay persistend in background to collect data or notify. (Facebook for example drain your battery)

So i wan´t to say if app is closed, kill the rest of it automatically.

I don't think is possible, without huge changes on android self.

If you try to stop a background services (on a android original device) from e.g. facebook, it starts self after some seconds.

I would recommend to stop dalvik self when you close your last android app. So I did it, when I use android apps.

No, that´s no problem, because you have the option to kill this specific app. It´s easy to make it run:

If gui.app.close & option (kill instead to close) then pkill com.facebook.katana else send close.app 2 com.facebook.katana

or something else.. Hope you mean what i mean.

Also it could prevent to trigger again if they is not triggered by user (open app by icon)

BTW. complete stop is sometimes not the way to handle if you need the persistence of some notifications (none native apps available)
