I noticed my Model 3 only charges if I wake up the car. I mainly charge the car using the charging adapter. At my workplace we have a few charging station in our EV parking spots. We have a good system where we leave our charging port open and people will plug you in when they're done charging. I usually get a notification when my car stars charging which is nice. Ever since Firmware 36.1, I noticed my car won't start charging on its own. I have to wake up the car with the app or open the door before it start charging. Has anyone else experience this issue?

Need to create a bug report. And please change title to "Cat not starting to charge when asleep"
For now, you may want to think about leaving a note thanking people for plugging you and ask them to text you, so that you can start charging.
