Is this something which could be supported by now? gnome-control-center -> power seems to offer a setting to manage wi-fi power saving but in the end this is just a wi-fi on/off switch which immediately brings the device down/up (bug 1751954).
Looking through the details of an existing NM wireless configuration profile there are no related (power saving) features exposed on the GUI. "nmcli connection show $UUID" lists a 802-11-wireless.powersave (default: 0) setting. https://developer.gnome.org/NetworkManager/stable/settings-802-11-wireless.html Is this what brings the interface down after some ~ 10 minutes of user input inactivity / ~ 5 minutes of blank screen? If so, could this be exposed on the GUI? -- You received this bug notification because you are a member of Ubuntu Touch seeded packages, which is subscribed to network-manager in Ubuntu. https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/1191895 Title: networking eventually brought down due to inactivity Status in network-manager package in Ubuntu: Confirmed Bug description: For various reasons, I like to be able to ssh in to my nexus 4. I have noticed with current saucy (and raring before it), after some time of inactivity the screen goes blank (fine), but then occasionally after some more time after that, networking is brought down (wifi) if there is no network activity. If I continuously ping the device, networking stays up. If I keep the screen from blanking, networking stays up. The current behavior is different than the behavior on android, where I can get various notifications for facebook, email, etc when the screen is blank.
