    My email notification comes through (at FULL volume, mind you!) when my phone is in sleep mode. How do I configure so that no sounds occur while in sleep mode?


    I cut over to this phone a month ago after 6 years on iPhones, so excuse my ignorance on most things Droid...

    Well, double check your sleep mode settings to make sure you have it set to not get notifications. The other option is to download an app to help. I use sound profile. It works great for me. I do have the pro version but I started with the free. It gives you lots of options for when to have your phone silent.

    You can setup interruption time or priority mode times. Sleep is just for active notifications while screen is off.

    Settings ->Sounds and notification -> interruption

    What do you mean by "sleep mode" - do you mean late at night, while you are sleeping, or while the phone's display is off but the phone is powered on?

    I'm assuming you mean while you are sleeping. Doesn't the Moto app have Assist to allow the phone to stop sound for specific times (i.e., while sleeping)? (Also based on calendar events, so it won't sound while you are in a meeting.)

    Yep.

    Use the Moto app, which incorporates the old Assist app to control phone modes such as driving, sleeping, etc...

    Within, you can prohibit sounds during the hours which you have selected as "sleep" time. You can also allow "favorites" to override.

    Assist is going away in 6.0, so I wouldn't consider that a long term solution.

    It's a great now solution, though. Particularly because there is no idea when the phone will get marshmallow.

    Why do something twice when you can just do it once? He'll probably forget about assist being removed, update, and then get woken up in the middle of the night again. Then, he'll have to find this post, start another one about interruptions, figure out how to set it up, and then be back to where he could have been from the start.

    Then he'll say, this Android stuff is a pita, and go back to apple.

    Oh, I'm pretty sure that Motorola is going to make it clear what needs to be changed. Again, the assist app is being retired, but the functionality will still exist for all parts of assist. In this case, Marshmallow has a sophisticated "Do not disturb" feature which allows time based rules, which doesn't exist today in Lollipop. See Do Not Disturb Mode: Android Marshmallow finally got it right | Pocketnow

    So, you can't do the time based rules without a third party app or Assist right now. You're going to have to learn something new anyway. So, to the OP, see my post above.

    Have you ever even seen interruptions before? I'm guessing no because "time based rules" is basically what it is.
