Hello Everyone,

I have a little problem with my S21 and I hope someone can help me.

For some time, it seems that my phone does not classify my apps in the Sleeping apps section. The phone automatically puts them in the deep sleep or never auto-sleep function, which is annoying. Additionally, all the apps are in restricted mode and not optimized anymore (under the battery option in the app menu). Alternatively, the apps are in the never-sleep section and run all the time in the background. I Dont have the middle ground and optimise option anymore.

I have enabled the adaptive battery mode and am not sure what I can do.

Thank you.

Have you tried going to the apps permissions and turn the data usage off for said apps?

Same here all of my apps have the wrong or no permissions all of the sudden. Which won't allow me to use things as I should. At this point I barely have a functioning phone. More stuff doesn't work than does.

Have you checked if you have Adaptive Battery on?  Settings >Battery > Background usage limits > three dots in the top right

Within More battery settings there are a number of features available for battery optimisation.
Adaptive battery: Limits the battery usage for apps that you do not often use. 
Processing speed: This can be adjusted between Optimised, High and Maximum. Using Optimised takes less strain on the battery and saves power.

Protect battery: This limits the maximum charge on your phone to 85%, increasing the lifespan of your battery, meaning your charge will last longer.
