To save power, I would like an option to let the phone automatically activate wifi and bluetooth whenever a program needs such a connection.

Likewise It would be nice if it could deactivate wifi and bluetooth when is haven't been used in a given time.

I know this feature won't be much use for those who uses IM or push mail, but for us who doesn't it could be a major power saver.

I agree, this would be very useful.

You won't recognize BT in standby on your power-bill, ever (at least that is what it can do - nothing but listen and that should be <0.5% of the stby time at max).

@chemist: are you sure in that? Does BT sends some broadcast messages so other nearby BT devices can discover Jolla device? I'm not 100% aware how BT protocol works, but when I turn on BT on Jolla and try to detect it with other BT device, Jolla shows as present.
