Whats is the command line for terminating (pause, stop from running, cancel process, close app, are all valid options) an app, and can it be done without devel-su rights.

In situations i would like to close all running apps for example when going to sleep.

make a reboot?

chris_bavaria i am thinking more targeted:
syntax: terminate running process in[~SFOS email app, SFOS gallery app]
First i would like to see it work in Sailfish, then the next step is to exoand to kill android apps on demand.

syntax: kill all running apps.

I dont want it to reboot necessarily because that uses up energy.

If there's no need for a reboot, I'd use "reboot homescreen" in Sailfish Utilities. Basically it just kills unnecessary processes/apps; like if an app gets stuck etc.

Sorry in advance if this sound stupid, but long press on "desktop' then press the "x" on each app isn't what you looking for ? also from setup you can enable the drop down gesture to quick close an app.
