Got an Android tablet or phone?

You may have read advice about turning off your Wi-Fi to save your device’s battery and that is good advice but, here’s a tip to save you having to keep changing settings but still save power automatically.

Go into the Settings app and tap the Wireless and Networks section.

Next you tap Wi-Fi Settings and look for the Sleep Policy.

If you tap that, you will get 3 options.

Probably you will see the status set to NEVER which means it never sleeps -thus draining your battery.

Select the option ‘When screen is turned off’ which means it will shut off the Wi-Fi when the screen is turned off otherwise known as standby mode.

That way you can save power without having to keep making changes to the settings.
