    Question Question about Power Saving Mode

    Hi all,

    I need to know an information about Power Saving Mode:

    Does activating Power Saving Mode disconnect current connection via Bluetooth between the mobile and other devices (Earpiece - Car Kit - etc.) ?

    Does activating Power Saving Mode disconnect current connection to internet via WiFi?


    My best regards,
    Ashraf

    Re: Question about Power Saving Mode

    Would it be easy to just test these ones ?

    Re: Question about Power Saving Mode

    Hello symbianyucca,

    I would if I could, for sorry I don't have a WiFi near.
    and for Bluetooth I want to make sure about it, because I test it and activating Power Saving Mode doesn't turn off Bluetooth while it's connected.

    I would also suppose that it would not cut of the connections. anyway, I did try checking earlier documentation for the Power savings mode, and did not find anything, thus I would suppose only way to see how it works, is to test it..

    Thank your for your reply,

    I forgot to mention that if anyone tested Power Saving effect on current WiFi, Bluetooth connection to mention the mobile model and platform.

    Re: Question about Power Saving Mode

    I use the enable/disable power-saving @ runtime in my application. On S60 5th (For sure Nokia 5530, 5800, C5-03, C6-01, C6) I use it on wireless connections. The connection will stay open when you change the power-saving settings.
    To be sure the settings are changed: start a ping test from a computer in the netwerk to your phone. Change the settings and if powersaving if OFF, the ping request return much faster then when powersaving is ON.

    Good luck

    Re: Question about Power Saving Mode

    just wondering that the API was introduced in Symbian^3, thus how are you using it in 5th ed ? Gotta say though that I have not checked the latest 5th ed firmwares, but older ones did not have the power saving mode in there at least.
