Samsung S6 6.0 Energy options break VPN #471
I don't know what exactly "exempting from Powersave features" means, but I experienced this issue on a Galaxy S7 Edge device running Android 6.0.1 with Power Saving Mode enabled and believe it's more generally applicable to similar devices with this option. The other mode is "Ultra Power Saving", which is designed to make the phone just a phone and thus not expected to allow OpenVPN to work at all [skipped nostalgic remark about flip phones]
These are the settings I found:
I expect the more coarse-grained method is to simply turning off "Power Saving Mode" as a whole, but I haven't verified this.
