    Turning off Google's Location Services works. It is unfortunate that I won't have Google Now.

    How does something like this get fixed? There's no way to talk directly to Google about it, their support pages just lead you in circles, never actually giving you the chance to contact them.

    I'm using an app on my Prime called AutoAirplane Mode. Works great.
    I tried this and it solved my battery problem completely. I lost 1% battery life through the night unplugged. The problem with this app is you can't receive phone calls when the screen is off.
    I had to switch to the app Long Battery Life. It shuts off wifi and carrier data when the screen is off. I can live with that. The aggravating thing is the operating system should do this without having to buy an app.

    Hi everyone. I was just doing some research on Viber, the VoIP app, and I noticed there's a setting that overrides the Android OS settings regarding switching off WiFi. If you have Viber, and you're WiFi isn't turning off, then have a look in the Viber settings for 'Wifi Sleep Policy'. - 'Always connected'. Which I think is the default setting.
    Turn that off.. and that MIGHT help some of your problems.

    My issue is simple. Should WiFi be left on, or automatically switched off when sleeping?? I'm still not sure, but I'm going to carry on reading.
