No more auto wifi kill in standby? android pie

I cannot find the option to auto kill WiFi during standby anymore in Pie. Is it removed? Are there alternatives? Auto kill saved me a ton of battery...

Hi @Mehmeh!

I have received some more information about this now and it has been removed in Android Pie, however the Adaptive Battery feature now ensures that the Wi-Fi uses as little battery power as possible.

Regarding the WPS push button, please see my reply here.

Have a nice day! Grinning Face with smiling Eyes

Well seeing a 5-8 times higher standby battery drain, it doesn't seem like an improvement, does it?

Hi @Mehmeh, please see the PM that I sent you a while ago regarding the battery running out faster!
