    my tablet automatically switches to "always on" setting, even if i switch to "off" because always on drains battery. I need an app to block ability to stay in the off position

    Welcome to Android Central! Does this also happen in Safe Mode?

    Hi everyone. I have registered just now. The tablet in question is asus zenpad 8.0. And yes, even in safe mode the same issue occurs. I only had this thing for 2.5 years

    Hi, welcome to AC!

    Have you check in wifi settings under advanced? How can I disable "Keep Wi-Fi on during sleep?"-screenshot_20210827-145426_settings.jpg

    That's a six year old tablet so it's likely the battery is just too dated now to be able to hold a charge like it used to. Disabling various background services might help a bit but don't expect doing so will result in a significant change in power savings.

    It's rare to find a tablet these days that's supported beyond 2 years. Samsung does better than everyone else, with their recent updated policy being 4 years of security updates for flagship tablets (like the Tab S6 and Tab S7): https://www.sammobile.com/news/samsu...licy-explains/. But your device is 6 years old, so it is totally normal for it to be no longer supported. (Heck, even Google's own Pixel devices lose support after 3 years.)

    Once again lol the wifi always on was switched to the default (on) it must be fault of the system...many apps i deny control of system with exception of google. FWIW this problem just started up mid 2020

    Does anyone else know of an app to block device from switching the wifi to "always" ? It happened again 2 times since yesterday. Once you choose to set it as never it should stay that way. Next time no more asus tablets!

    As a workaround, what if you turn on Airplane Mode overnight (or whenever you're not planning to use the tablet)?

    I tried that, nada. I usually just turn it off completely. I will have to bear with it until get another tablet. I want to try hyundai brand, its at target.

    Two things.

    First it sounds like you are wanting to leave it in sleep mode for extended periods of time so why not just just plug it in so that it stays powered?

    Second if we're talking about a tablet that doesn't have its own data access without WiFi, what is the purpose of keeping it on when not in use? With no data and no WiFi it can't be getting notifications or updates, and not to sound course, but at that point its on just to be on.

    Are you saying that wi-fi still comes on even in Airplane Mode? That's not supposed to happen.

    i vaguely recall i posted a thread about this issue....but there has to be like an app in the google playstore or even an apk file where it can prevent device from automatically switching back to wifi default "keep wifi on during sleep" because my tablet is an old outdated asus zenpad 8.0 model, it reboots most of the time running android 7. Everytime have to manually switch it back to "never" if the wifi mode is turned on, it will drain the battery signifigantly!

    I merged your post into that other thread you had created before.

    Does this happen in Safe Mode as well? https://safemodewiki.com/guides/how-...ad-8-0-z380kl/

    Also, are you powering the tablet down every night?

    It happens even safe mode. When i first bought it, it never did this before. All i need is an app to block apps abilities in changing that setting thats all.

    Most of the time i go to powersaver and disable all networks before sleep. And sometimes ill just turn it off. Or...ill go to airplane mode. Depends on my mood at that given time

    I'm still scratching my head about this. It sounds like the Keep Wi-fi On During Sleep option keeps turning on, right? But if you turn on Airplane Mode (or turn off the wi-fi switch alone), do you see actual evidence of wi-fi turning back on (like the wi-fi icon in the status bar appearing)?

    It switches back to always on after device reboots itself. Because device is outdated both auto reboot and always on wifi are the 2 outstanding issues. But moreso the wifi issue. Already denied many apps to modify system settings. Still seeing wifi issue. If there is an app to address this problem would be great

    Are you saying that you can't turn off the auto-reboot option either? There's no reason to automatically reboot a phone on a scheduled basis unless there are any obvious performance issues.
