1. A method of managing user interaction with an application on a mobile device, the method, comprising:

  • determining presence of user activity at the mobile device;

    identifying or determining, at the mobile device, characteristics of the user activity;

    communicating the characteristics of the user activity to an entity remote from the mobile device, such that the user activity is able to be simulated or mimicked by the remote entity;

    wherein, the user activity is simulated or mimicked remotely to monitor or observe content change at a server or resource;

    determining or computing, with the mobile device, a time to live (TTL) associated with the user activity by comparing whether the user activity has been repeated a number of time exceeding a predetermined number of time within a period of time;

    in response, indicating to the remote entity said TTL, which includes an amount of time for which the remote entity is to simulate or mimic the user activity to monitor or observe the server or the resource for content changes;

    upon subsequent detection of user interactions having same or similar characteristics as the identified characteristics, blocking the user interactions from powering on or switching up the radio; and

    stopping the simulating or mimicking when the TTL expires.
