Subject RE: FW: cordova API doc queries (pause event)

(Retitled the thread to narrow this issue.)

Would an app typically be paused by the device platform as it anticipates it's about to die
for lack of battery?

Also, please confirm pause/resume necessarily applies only when execution of an application
is actually suspended, not when it's somehow running in the background in some minified way
as was the case on meego.  Do any of these platforms support that kind of multitasking?  If
so, it would affect how you might use the notification API.

Sorry for all the naive questions, and thanks,

  E.g., an app can't pause itself, correct?

No, the app can't pause itself. The system throws events that we capture, and translate to
