OnePlus has added a toggle under setting called “Sleep Standby Optimisation”. When activated, it shuts down the network when you are asleep which should translate to a longer battery life but also means notifications won’t arrive on your device in time.

“The system intelligently identifies your sleep pattern based on the phone’s usage,” says OnePlus. Just before you wake up, network restrictions are canceled and then your notifications come in.

The toggle is located under battery optimizations under the battery settings menu. You have to tap the three dots at the corner to access Advanced optimization and then the toggle.

The update is about 1.6GB in size and is rolling out in stages. If you haven’t received it yet, it should arrive over the next few days.
