Hey guys. My X has the new MCU, and my car doesn't seem to ever sleep. I use Teslafi, but notice that the new MCU doesn't have the power saving menu items that the older cars have.
Anyone else experiencing this? Any tips?
Thanks! I thought I was going nuts. I also can't re-boot any more with the scroll wheels either. I also noticed the "Commute Advice" switch in the Nav app screen is missing too.
Here is what my Displays screen looks like. Just white space where the Energy Savings and Always Connected controls used to be:

This is the closest I can come to the old "Always on."

I cannot reboot mine with the scroll wheels...
New MCU Software 2018.10.6
Until I froze mine up and forced a reboot wifi setup was a mess.
On the wifi setup screen - Can anyone see their MAC address by pressing the "i"
For me it says "information not available..."
In my wife's S it will show a MAC address on the wifi setup screen.
While I was typing in a password for the wifi network that I just got the green checkmark on...
The car responded: "Enter network name and password"
While I was past entering the first character of the password an uppercase "Q" I typed the backspace key.
The car computer operations locked up - Even the main clock froze for 15 minutes...
It rebooted and wifi has been better since.
I wonder out loud if the "cannot boot" problem was the "hold" on deliveries and shipments over that weekend...
It booted after the update to 2018.10.6 and has not booted despite my requests since then...
I saw in the "S": forum where a service center technician referred to a "12 volt pull" as a solution to that particular
failure to boot.
I do not know what a "12 volt pull" is, but I could make an educated guess..................
Sleep isn’t as important in the newer models that have an embedded power supply for the MCU and body controller inside the main battery. Having said that, it is odd that Tesla would eliminate these options.
Don't forget sleep also cut's down on the read / write cycles on nand flash.

Is it possible to add an MCU power cutoff?
Got to be.
physical switch and wires.
Like an oldschool hudden anti theft cutoff.
Would also be an antitheft cutoff, really.
But that isn't the point.
But it is also a point.

How long can a Tesla sit powered off without issues?
Any issues booting back up again?
Yes, but the new MCU with better thermal management and larger flash won’t suffer nearly as much as the older ones with 8 GB that ran at 60 C. Overall, I don’t think most owners will experience MCU flash failures until many more years down the line.
No Shawn, that is way too much underpowered. What you need is this....From another new MCU reset thread I referenced above they discussed a "12 volt pull reset."
Humorously, I have just the solution:
It's good for 250 Amps.!
