Yes - this should work for your purposes (if I understand your intent 
correctly!).

At the moment...

If 'exits on suspend' is true then you will receive a startup message 
when the app is launched, and then a shutdown message whenever the app 
ceases to be foreground. The app will essentially restart entirely each 
time the user goes back to it.

If 'exits on suspend' is false then you will receive a startup message 
when the app is launched, and then no other messages. When an app is 
suspended, it will resume at exactly the same place it was before. If 
the OS decides to kill it (or the user does), you won't get any 
notification and it will relaunch from scratch (i.e. you'll get a 
startup message again) next time.

So, in your case, if you get a startup message (which triggers the 
openStack message) it means the app was either killed by the user or the 
OS and so should start from the beginning; otherwise you can assume that 
the app will be in the same place as it was before it was put into the 
background and you need to do nothing.

Warmest Regards,

Mark.
