OT question about activities: how can they manage stop/restart of applications 
inside them? What about eg singletons?

About Power Management; having the ability to manage the 3 main profiles is 
everything I need. So, having an easier way to do it is an improvement for the 
users, IMHO.

I don't have a clear idea about activities, as I'm not used to. But the idea 
expressed in your mail makes sense to me.
So, +1 from here.
