Why would you keep passive entry off?...isn’t this a convenience item...walk up door open...walk away door locks...

no chance of forgetting to lock or pull the key fob out

For example, I don't want the car to unlock if I'm just walking by it in the driveway. I never forget to lock. OCD. :)

Theft prevention here in the UK along with pin to drive. Stops the key fob relay attacks that are quite popular in the EU.

That make sense...I thought Tesla update the key fob firmware to combat relay attacks

Yep they have a update for the new V2 key fobs . It wouldn't let me update my v1 fob . Although I think this was done to combat key fob cloning , not sure if it has any impact on the relay attacks.

That car menu can only update v2 fobs, you need to change your v1’s to v2 at Tesla SeC. It costs app. €141.- plus taxes for one fob. Back to the subject, it still does something odd if not in use, here is another example - car not used since 12:48

This what I found out yesterday, car was charging on UMC and I was away. These intermediate notifications has been always around but I had nothing to connect to the event, except dodgy wall plug. At my workplace they are with the mechanical timer that user can set on-and-off times. So perhaps there was some faults on the dial... But now here are some other events that occur only if car is not in use. For @airborne spoon I believe your AP failure is not in connection of the PS issue you had. As on the notifications page it warns me one time I start to drive and then next time nothing...
