To the best of my knowledge, it is currently only possible to turn wifi on/off completely. Meaning e.g. that it stays on even if its not connected to a hotspot and/or screen is off. I would like to kindly request some more advanced features / rules that could be configured:

  • Turn off wifi if screen off (that is the very basic one which is also supported in android)
  • Turn wifi on with screen on
  • Turn wifi off if screen off
  • Turn wifi off if screen off and not connected to wifi
  • Turn wifi off if screen off and connected to hotspot but no active SSH session
  • ...

There are of course many more rules that could be thought of, e.g. using also a timer component.

I never thought of such settings. There are not much scenarios I can imagine for the wifi to be activated/deactivated according to screen state. In most cases I want wifi to be turned on to get chat messages, e-mails, calendars to be synced while the screen is blank.

Have you tried the Situations app available in Jolla store? It has a screen on/off condition and you can assign a wifi on/off event to this. You can even fine-tune it by running your own shell script on different conditions.
