Simulated warm-boot without the need for root access: restarts foreground apps; kills non-persistent and non-service apps; restarts the launcher desktop; re-initializes all desktop widgets. Process manager: kill all; persistent white list; detailed information on each process. With root access: real warm-boot; reboot to recovery; shut-down. Also, it's just cool.
Can be set to activate upon: boot, screen on, screen off.
