    I have a couple of apps that run in the background of my galaxy S8 that don't seem to run until I touch the screen or press the power button to get to the login screen. Two examples would be Llama Location Profiles and SMS Backup and Restore. Llama won't activate a profile until I touch the screen. SMS Backup won't run a scheduled backup until I do the same thing.

    Is there anything in Android 7 or the Galaxy S8 itself that prevents these kind of apps from running as expected? I was thinking it was a power saving feature that might cause this but can't seem to find anything that would cause this in my settings.

    The doze feature is putting those apps to sleep.

    That sounds like a logical cause. I have set those apps to not be optimized.

    Thank you for your help.
