    My GSII seems to turn off Auto Sync randomly. This means my gmail doesn't sync until I do it manually. It's really annoying. Anyone else have this happen?

    yes that used to happen to me all the time. it has to do with power saving mode. in your settings, you probably have "turn off auto-sync" selected. when your phone goes into power saving mode, it turns off auto-sync, but does NOT turn it back on when you have full battery (this is stupid...it should restore your original settings...). uncheck this option and you should be fine

    I have the same issue but I don't use power saving mode, the 2 checkboxes are unchecked so I assume that the auto sync should not be affected by the low battery power...
    Is there another setting for that?

    Ok, I finally solved it, I use Setting Profile as profile manager and I don't know why but one of my profiles had one of its settings to turn off the auto sync data....

    Thank you! I've been having this same problem as well! Wouldn't have thought about checking profiles if not for this thread.

    Has anyone figured out if there are any other apps that turn off sync?

    I'm using a Nexus 5x and this keeps happening.

    I no longer have any battery apps installed, but do have Tasker, but with no tasks or profiles.

    This is also happening on my LG G-Pad 7 tablet.
