Email notifications not sounding in morning

    Hello. Odd question: I have a Moto X4 running Android 9. I've set it up to make a notification sound any time I receive an email (gmail) so it will wake me up in the morning if one arrives. However, for a good while now it hasn't been making the notification sound when I'm still asleep in the morning. It isn't until I wake up and press the power button that I finally get the notification sound a few seconds later, and it's often for an email that arrived an hour ago or more. Also, it's very unlikely that it's making an additional sound beforehand that isn't waking me up because I'm an extremely light sleeper. How do I disable this feature so it makes the sound regardless of the time of day?

    Thank you very much for any suggestions.

    Thank you very much for the response. It's for Gmail. Your link on Adaptive Battery was interesting, but *probably* not the issue since Gmail is already in the ACTIVE bucket, even when I have no window for it open. To further confuse matters, Battery Saver and Battery optimization are both turned off :/

    I think I'm going to try disabling Adaptive Battery for now just to see if that's what's causing the issue. If that doesn't work, I have some other ideas such as filtering messages by certain contacts as important, or maybe even just keeping Gmail open throughout the night to ensure it stays in the ACTIVE bucket.
    Thank you again.
