Given the importance of this to battery life, it would be cool if apps
were sent SIGSUSP when they were minimized or some the user stopped
interacting with them. If an application (e.g. media player) wanted to
override this behaviour, they could do so in their .desktop file,
.service file or osso_initialize() call.
