After like five years I log in here hoping you guys are more help than reddit or any other place... lets hope.
I have a Google Pixel XL (the old Pixel) running 8.1. Android is up to date, the device is NOT rooted or otherwise non-stock
And, in 8.1 they seem to have removed the ability to turn wifi off when the device is in sleep. So I had gone from full charge down to 95% overnight, to full charge to 70% overnight. Obviously if I turn wifi off, airplane mode on, or battery saver on I get good use overnight.. but this isn't always something I remember to do. And I'd rather not keep it plugged in 24/7 either.
I've been going off of this link
. I managed to figure out where to download and get working, ADB, but I'm at a wall here.
Things I've tried;
adb shell settings put global wifi_sleep_policy 1
I've ran this successfully (I know adb is working, I can view logs, reboot phone and change other settings) and verify that it saves by running
adb shell settings list global
and rebooting... but it doesn't seem to save
This is my wifi settings when I run settings list global
- I've tried Tasker, but the explicit options says it is locked and requires root to toggle
- I've tried a few other wifi sleep management apps, but they also say something along the lines of 'your options are set to so-and-so, enable sleep in advanced settings'.. but the option is gone.
Example image from the article I linked. I have the same settings
Short of rooting or factory resetting my phone (which won't work, Google support confirmed they removed this feature for some reason), is there anything I can do about this?
