TeslaFi logs show pattern of 32 hrs of “sleep” and 2.5 hrs “awake” over 2 wk period

I left my car at rest for about 2 weeks. Not plugged in and without using the app.

Looking at the logs from TeslaFi I found an interesting pattern, about 32 hours (30h23 - 33h01) of "sleep" followed by about 2h30 of waking state (1h54 - 3h01).

Is it similar for everyone?

Yes, that's pretty common. The car will "wake up" for brief periods for reasons that, AFAIK, nobody here knows with certainty (or if they do, they aren't talking). Chances are it's so that the car can "phone home" to see if there's a new software update available and/or to perform routine checks on the hardware, battery state, etc.
