How to prevent Poweramp from being killed?

How do I prevent this?

Remove Poweramp from the list of apps that are optimized by the operating system. Add it to the list of apps that aren't. The wording will differ across android versions.

@bloodw3rx Settings / Apps & notifications /  Poweramp / (Advanced) Battery / Background Restrictions => App can use battery in background,
Battery optimization /  (top selectbox) All Apps / Poweramp / Don't Optimize (Same for Poweramp - Full Version Unlocker if you use one).

Usually, system is smart enough to allow Poweramp to run in background (for my tests Pixel 2 XL @ Pie runs 12-24 hours non stop on battery with no issues), but it can also depend on other apps installed/running on the device, when the Battery optimizer "AI" (hand written logic with issues) prioritizes something else (e.g. GMS).

When I click on Battery optimization my Settings force closes. Might be because I am on Q Beta 3.  But it does say that it is optimizing battery use which could be why it's being killed.
