When I was looking at battery statistics I've found something strange: the bar showing wether a component is running or not indicates that wifi were active when I took off my phone. Is this a bug? I have a Google Nexus 5 with standard Android 5 on it.

Here the screenshot of statistics : Wi-Fi working when Android device is off


As Microsoft) used to say:

That's not a bug, that's a feature.

Check for following: Settings -> Wi-Fi -> Menu -> Advanced:

  • Scanning always available
  • Keep Wi-Fi on during sleep

  • OK thanks so when my device is set off it's "sleeping"? – Daair Feb 26 '15 at 17:59
  • @Daair sleeping and being switched off are two different things. – RossC Feb 27 '15 at 15:24
