I've been doing this for quite some time. But I've noticed that
some apps that I haven't actively used or never use somehow have
become activated and I have to force-stop them again.

Yeah, Google-developed apps especially. In that case, I've rationalized it that their apps are so heavily linked that running Google apps will start the forced stopped one to re-open. Probably to guarantee maximum personal privacy snooping.

As to other 3rd-party apps, I've noticed it with some when I do a reboot. Maybe there's a Java call available to app developers to load-on-restart?
