I am new to Android 7.1, and I would like my phone to be always on while charging. Is there any disadvantage? Are there any system processes running only in sleep mode?

  • Activate Developer options ( Go to Settings->About Phone->tap on build number multiple times, and it shows a message You have enabled Developer options after completed) , Inside developer options, check whether Stay awake is ON or not, if ON turn off by sliding left.

  • @RahulGopi OP didn't ask how to achieve that, but if that has any disadvantage. I'd say OP is completely capable of enabling it :)

  • There are no issues with background processes, you can go ahead.
