There is something I dont understand, I thought that mobile data drain more battery then Wifi when used, so wouldn't turning off Wifi and using Mobile data instead will create more battery drain during the sleep ?

Yeah, it is, in theory.
In practice keeping Wi-Fi on often causes certain wakelocks (like wlan_rx_wake) to drain more battery by keeping CPU active than a power needed to maintain a mobile data connection. The amount of time these wakelocks may take place depends on Wi-Fi router, I guess; at my home keeping Wi-Fi on during the night eats a looot more batter than when it is off and mobile internet is used instead. Also note that when Wi-Fi is on, all applications are aware that there is a high speed unlimited connection available, and thus may behave differently (start syncing heavy files, etc.).

I've experienced this as well, though quite rarely. Didn't investigate this yet.

Also try enabling [b]Scanning always available[\b], I didn't notice any increase of battery consumption. Effectively the mod will only prevent connecting to a net when showing unlock screen. I'm not sure about whether this would fix your issue though.

I'll probably use this and test it a bit on my Huawei Ascend P6 until I find a solution which disables WiFi connectin only for certain apps or whitelists only certain apps.

Or does anyone know about a module or app that allows me to whitelist certain apps (like messengers) so they can use my WiFi but apps not on the whitelist would be blocked from using my WiFi connection (so they won't wake my phone)?

Better Wifi On/Off will let you whitelist apps for wifi.

Hi,

I like this module so much, unfortunately it doesn't work at my office wifi. There the WiFi connection is constantly up. How can I find out what keeps the WiFi connection alive? Is this a router problem? Any tips?
