On my Nexus 7 and I guess my Galaxy Nexus there is a developers configuration section in the setting menu. I've looked at some of them, most I am not interested in although I have modified some of the animation and GPU options.
One option I am not clear about is the one that lets you set the number of background processes. I assume this means the number of other processes or activities that can run in the background while you are in the foreground app at the same time. I am leaving mine set to the default, but what is the default, how does it work, and do you gain or lose anything by mucking around with this setting?
Curious about this because there have been a few times where the phone/tablet response has slowed for a bit, then I discover some notification was on it's way in. I would rather have continued with what I was doing and have the notification show up when I had completed what I was doing or when device was idle.
