Of course, the dev community is absolutely thrilled to present you with a solution by harnessing the Xposed framework's limitless power. If your device is rooted and you've got Xposed up and running, the only thing you need now is this set of easy to follow instructions:

There isn't any way to do anything like this without root. However, I can understand not wanting to root the device. Voiding the warranty on your brand new device just to do some extra tweaking can be a deal breaker for this. Kruze will just have to wait until his device is a year old.

The option to pick and choose what apps are able to run in the background should be built into Android and give the user the freedom to pick or choose for themselves.

Thought about it. It all voice down to Google not picking side. The user, the OEM or the bloatware developer. Everyone, has an stake and will serve their own interest. So if the user want control they have to empower themselves thru choices and knowledge. Learn to root so the moment the phone is out of warranty root them and stay away from brands known for their bloatware.

Don't want a program to auto start? Simple. Go to settings, apps, the one you don't want to auto start, and pick stop. Programs you stop cannot auto run unless you open the program again. Folks, this isn't bull crap windows where programs stick themselves in some crappy registry or auto run folder to start at boot. Android makes it easy for you to do this.

I've done it all very easily using Clean Master, all you have to do is gain it a root access, go to Phone Boost inside the app, there you'll see an Autostart Manager, uncheck the apps that you don't want to autostart after boot from the given list. NO XPOSED NEEDED.

Its not that efficient. There are other means to start an application on boot and boot manager cannot prevent that.
