Why there is so many options hidden on Atom - e.g. Keep WiFi on during sleep

on 1/1/19, 10:29 PM 316 views

I do not understand the trend to remove/hide so many options on Atom, e.g it is not possible to disable Keep WiFi on during sleep.

I even tried to use

settings put global wifi_sleep_policy 1

thru adb, but the wifi still remains on during sleep. Why could we not switch the wifi off during sleep?

It's quite easy to turn off Wifi from the notifications pull-down if that is what you want.   It seems simple enough to turn off.   Personally I never leave Wifi on except when I need it because it drains the battery faster as well as leaving your phone less secure - Wifi is fairly easy to hack.   Is it really that much trouble to turn it off from the pull down?

Actually no - the android had/have and option to switch off automaticaly wifi when phone is sleeping, this is for some reason not available on Atom.
