Here's my problem. Connection Optimizer is a great idea on paper but not so much for me in real life. Outside of where I work it works quite well and I like it. At work it just eats my battery. By mutual agreement I do not connect my personal phone to my employer's secure protected wifi network. When I leave home to go to work the Connection Optimizer turns off my wifi for my drive to work and that's great. When I get to work my phone sniffs the strong wifi signals, realizes the networks are locked, and leaves the wifi turned on. I notice the phone in my pocket which should be idle is getting warm so I pull it out, notice the 20% drop in battery, and turn off the wifi. An hour or two later it happens again and this goes on all day long or until I have a dead battery.
If there were a way to blacklist the wifi networks at work this would be an easy problem to fix. Can it be done and if so what do I need to do?
Once you go under your WiFi list of the connections, you click on the WiFi that you want to block and select forget.
Also, Connection Optimizer will always look for WiFi networks, so it will be best if you just turn it off, that will save a little more battery.
Do you have power saving mode on?
My problem was solved by changing phones but I appreciate your response.
Connection Optimizer may have been great in theory but the way they implemented it was a deal breaker for me. If Connection Optimizer would have stayed off when I turned it off I could have lived with it.
lol an expensive way for a solution.
Also that is weird, my Connection Optimizer stays off. I turned it off since it will try to conect to open networks around me (even when I was driving) and it has not turned itself on again.
