WhatsApp not checking for messages until I open it

This is pretty weird and definitely not what I'm used to; have only had this problem on the Cosmo - any ideas?

Is it possible this is another Duraspeed flaw?  Perhaps it's not letting WhatsApp run in the background and thus only updating when you have said app in the foreground?

If you go into your main settings there is a Duraspeed item in there.  It's supposed to prevent apps from using excessive battery - but it's far too aggressive and just kills any background process right now.  For example those of us with smart watches have to turn in off to maintain a Bluetooth connection.  It has a white-list, but currently just ignores it - so to say it's borked is an understatement.

I would recommend going in there and turning it off to see if it help.

That didn't work - this is causing me an issue now.  Will do some research.

Same here - must be a bug

I'm using WhatsApp and I haven't missed any messages yet.  I'm not a heavy user but I have had some pop up while the Cosmo is closed/locked.

I do have DuraSpeed disabled, but I haven't set this app to no-optimize (yet).

If I go to Settings : Apps : WhatsApp : Battery, mine is currently set to:
* Background restriction : App can use battery in background
* Battery optimization : Optimizing battery use
