This publication describes methods of enabling an energy-saving mode on a mobile device after an unexpected charging interruption. The power manager application implemented on the mobile device uses sensor data from sensors on the device and/or power quality data to determine if the charging interruption was expected. If the sensor data and/or power quality data indicates that the charging interruption was unexpected, the power manager application may automatically enable an energy-saving mode on the mobile device to conserve battery life. The user may also receive a notification from the mobile device that the energy-saver mode was enabled.
