Don't disturb and power saving modes
I can’t find logic in those settings.
- Don’t disturb mode puts screen in dark mode
- Don’t disturb mode would be switched automatically on when you select power save mode. And switch notifications off too.
- It would be great to could choose an automatic “night mode” where user could choose between normal, don’t disturb or power saving modes.
This is because I could need a don’t disturb mode for a work meeting, but don’t want a dark screen which is supposed to be needed in a battery saving need situation.
So I think it would be better to have a power saving mode with 3 levels:
- Full work (everything is on and sounds depending on specific setting)
- Don’t disturb (notifications off, sounds off)
- Low battery (don’t disturb plus dark screen and sync off for battery saving)
Easier and more understandable.
@ColdBeer I think the rationale for this behavior is simple: power save mode is really a do not disturb mode on steroids and disables everything extraneous. It includes regular DND stuff and then some. Notifications imply buzzing and perhaps different BLE polling intervals, which means power. Regular screen backlight – again, power. Sounds is speaker, which is power yet again.
That being said, it would be nice if we indeed had a fine grained controls where one can go from totally silent to buzzing to buzzing and sound for sound/haptic feedback and various degrees of screen backlight including total off, aka theater mode.
Perhaps, a future improvement?
